Industrial automation is the use of control systems, computers, sensors, and actuators to mechanize tasks that are either too dangerous or repetitive for humans. This type of automation has proven to be vital in industries such as electricity generation, oil and gas extraction, mining and agriculture.
The use of this technology has increased in recent years as the cost of industrial automation has decreased. The increased use of this technology has led to an increase in jobs for people who specialize in it.
Automation is now cheaper than ever and the trend of using this technology in the workplace is growing. This shift in how we work means that there will be an increased need for people to manage and maintain the new systems.
Factory automation is the process of using machines to carry out tasks that humans normally do, like making cars or coffee. The goal is to make the factory more efficient by reducing the number of workers needed, or to make it safer for workers by removing them from hazardous areas. A common goal is also to make the factory more environmentally friendly.
