Practical applications of automation

The topic of “Automation” is both familiar and unfamiliar to those working in the engineering field. It’s familiar because the term “Automation” has been continuously evolving and implemented in factories, offices, and companies for a long time, so it’s no longer something entirely new. However, it’s also peculiar because the process of refining automation solutions is always in constant flux. Even if you feel that the current approach is optimal, when improving these solutions, you will always encounter new aspects, especially when applying automation in real-life scenarios.

In reality, this issue arises from your satisfaction before encountering or applying better solutions. Alongside the continuous development of new ideas and technologies in the field of automation, the ongoing application of these innovations in practical scenarios is simultaneously carried out to observe the outcomes of the technologies being implemented.

So how has automation been applied ?

For service-related sectors that cater to daily life:

  • In the medical field: Currently, many large hospitals have deployed technological solutions such as using robots for diagnosis and examination, as well as storing and managing patient data books for retrieval. information data more quickly and conveniently………
  • In the field of traffic: Applying automation to cameras on the road to identify license plates, check vehicle owner information to fine violators. The traffic light system helps divide lanes and traffic to avoid traffic jams………
  • In hotel operations and public commercial services: Managing the hotel reservation system, doors automatically opening and closing when there are people, hallway lighting systems automatically lighting up to help save electricity and still ensure adequate lighting. bright,……..
  • In daily living activities: Applications on devices around the house create a smart home to increase the indoor life experience, to save energy and maximize the use of items and equipment. suffered in the house.

For industrial production activities

  • It can be said that the most common application of automation, and everyone often thinks of it, is the application of automation in industrial production. The application of automation solutions and technology in the factory is extremely important because the production and transportation of goods requires a lot of human resources and the risk of accidents is quite high. Besides, the quality of the products created also requires highly qualified workers and therefore the products may be uneven, causing a loss of aesthetics and product quality.
  • For production lines: a closed and continuous chain will be created from start to finish, ensuring production standards are not stagnant.
  • For operations: ensure continuous monitoring and operation of automation devices that assist humans in alerting and detecting errors on production or assembly lines.
  • For transporting goods: Automatically controlled vehicles (AGVs) are used a lot to transport goods to designated locations completely automatically.
  • Many factories have applied the creation of smart factories by creating fully automated factories. Although there are some limitations, applying technology to production will achieve long-term effectiveness.
