    For over a year now, Tesla has been expanding its Fremont factory in preparation for the start of Model 3 production.

    The plant, which is already one of the biggest in the world, has changed quite a bit, but there was no new significant large structure like this new one coming up right now. moreā€¦

    Impressive. I noticed the beginnings of this last month and wondered if it was a new office building or some sort of garage/storage system. Gotta store those car parts somewhere!

    I think Electrek hit the nail on the head here. I love these automated robotic storage systems, and many warehouses are now using them. Kiva systems is not far from here, using smaller rolling bots. Amazon bought them and now uses them in their warehouses. https://www.amazonrobotics.com/
    ...that spawned off Symbotic to work independently and down the street from Kiva. I had a chance to work for them for a short while and witness their robotic test track. Very cool. http://www.symbotic.com

    So this is something between the small bin warehouse bots and the giant automatic car storage systems that we've seen, perfect for handling pallets.
