Types Of Automation

People don’t realize the scale of modern automation and how much innovation has already begun to work more efficiently and more freely in our everyday lives. Machines will now equal or surpass people in a large variety of industries. I should post comprehensive case studies of automation programs in multiple industries in the coming weeks. Today however, I want to share a fast list of examples that might relate to manufacturing automation.


A semi-self-supporting space sensor. For example, a planetary rover might decide to sample a certain soil. While spacecraft are designed for different and specific mission goals, in many shapes and sizes they share a lot in common. For potential space exploration projects, advanced robots, habitats, robotic assistance systems and autonomous spacecraft systems are important for adjusting to the evolving and challenging climate.

Auto Mechanical preparation and coordination to increase the protection of these projects and that their costs will incorporate new discovery technology for land and flight operations. Automated preparation is important to maximize the experimental return of deep space samples and also of earth observation devices, and to supplement and improve human capacities of project operators.

Home Appliances

There was the Roomba before the entire intelligent home and IoT market exploded. Like a squashed trash can, the flagship product iRobot has challenged your expectations of robotic and vacuum cleaners who can cleanse a room without much guidance. Roomba can now be more programmed by IFTTT (if so) by its owner. Once you exit the room, applets will activate the robot cleaner, e.g. start and stop the cleaning if the phone is addressed.

Self Driving Vehicles

They are not yet completely autonomous cars, but several important technologies are already under way. The automobile sector typically recognizes 5 specific rates of driving automation. Based on their relative automation, rates 0 to 5 shall be specified. Level 0, “No Automation,” is where the driver operates the vehicle without software assistance.

The condition improves at level 5 named “Complete Automation,” where the vehicle will move without contact with human beings.Rate 3, where we are now, is “extremely automatic driving.” The greatest change from level 2 to level 3 is that the car itself, starting at level 3, monitors all environmental surveillance (use devices such as LiDAR). At this level, the attention of the driver remains critical, but can disassociate it from “critical safety” functions, such as braking, when conditions are safe and leave the technology. Many existing vehicles on level 3 do not require human attention at speeds less than 37 miles per hour.

Smart Home Notifications

Home automation is as it looks like: automation with a quick click of a button (or a voicing command) with the capacity to monitor things around your home [from lighting, window shade to animal feeding). Some practices are basic and fairly inexpensive, like setting up a heating device to switch on and off at certain hours.

Others can require more significant expenditure in time and resources, such as sophisticated security cameras. Technology giants are pursuing each other with the creation of more wired home appliances, such as a cooler that wants to remind the owner of the expiry date of a carton of milk.
