AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - General Motors is donating robots once used on auto assembly plant floors to Oakland Community College’s robotics program.

The robots are valued at $20,000 and will be delivered Monday afternoon to the school’s Auburn Hills’ campus, north of Detroit.

The robots no longer were needed by GM because of process changes at its plants. They are intended for hands-on educational and training for Oakland Community College students learning robotics operation, basic programming, advanced programming and functions, simulation and mechanical and controller maintenance.
