Topics similar to or like Automation

Automation describes a wide range of technologies which reduce human intervention in processes. Wikipedia

  • Self-driving car

    Autonomous vehicle , driverless car, or robo-car is a vehicle that is capable of sensing its environment and moving safely with little or no human input. Self-driving cars combine a variety of sensors to perceive their surroundings, such as radar, lidar, sonar, GPS, odometry and inertial measurement units. Wikipedia

  • Technological unemployment

    Loss of jobs caused by technological change. Key type of structural unemployment. Wikipedia


    Control system architecture comprising computers, networked data communications and graphical user interfaces (GUI) for high-level process supervisory management, while also comprising other peripheral devices like programmable logic controllers (PLC) and discrete proportional-integral-derivative (PID) controllers to interface with process plant or machinery. The use of SCADA has been considered also for management and operations of project-driven-process in construction. Wikipedia

  • Pharmacy automation

    Pharmacy automation involves the mechanical processes of handling and distributing medications. Any pharmacy task may be involved, including counting small objects (e.g., tablets, capsules); measuring and mixing powders and liquids for compounding; tracking and updating customer information in databases (e.g., personally identifiable information (PII), medical history, drug interaction risk detection); and inventory management. Wikipedia

  • Sensor-based sorting

    Umbrella term for all applications where particles are singularly detected by a sensor technique and rejected by an amplified mechanical, hydraulic or pneumatic process. Generally applied in the three industries mining, recycling and food processing and used in the particle size range between 0.5 and 300 mm. Since sensor-based sorting is a single particle separation technology, the throughput is proportional to the average particle size and weight fed onto the machine. Wikipedia
