#SKODAAUTOhelps: SKODA AUTO is fully committed to combat the spread of the coronavirus
This includes members of staff from ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab, the car sharing service HoppyGo, Uniqway – the car-sharing platform for students – and ŠKODA dealers. This particularly fast and efficient cleaning method has been made possible by ŠKODA AUTO DigiLab. On top of that, the ŠKODA team ensures that information on where to find free spots for the ozone treatment is provided online to all the relevant partners.
The research team from the Czech Institute of Informatics, Robotics and Cybernetics (CIIRC) of the Czech Technical University in Prague has been supported by ŠKODA AUTO’s development centre in Česana – where work is usually carried out on ŠKODA prototypes and models of future vehicle generations – to develop and implement a 3D printing process for the production of FFP3 respirators. At present, around 60 respirators are produced at ŠKODA AUTO each day; the project is also supported by Czech universities and private companies that have similar printers, leading to a total daily output of several hundred masks.
ŠKODA provides financial support to combat the corona pandemic For people and social services in the regions of its Czech sites, ŠKODA has also made direct financial aid available – to date amounting to ten million Czech korunas.
