Unimate is Installed

In 1961, General Motors installed the first industrial robot in its Inland Fisher Guide Plant in New Jersey.  This robot was called Unimate and it was also the first modern programmable robot; it was autonomous and pre-programmed to repeatedly move pieces of hot metal in the plant.
