Carwash Connection: Automation

AKRON, Ohio — Robots aren’t the future — they’re already here.

AKRON, Ohio — In this week’s video, Associate Publisher – Editorial Rich DiPaolo explains how automation is impacting the carwash industry.

DiPaolo says, “PwC estimates that 38 percent of jobs in the U.S. are at high risk of being replaced by robots and AI over the next 15 years. While the days of autonomous cars being washed by autonomous carwashes might still be a few years away, what we are seeing today from leading carwash equipment manufacturers and system providers is the use of smarter, automated equipment.”
