Manufacturing in industry will change dramatically

Smart robotic automation is being integrated into factories to perform the so-called Dirty, Dull and Dangerous tasks of workers. Advanced sensor technology means manufacturing robots can adapt and learn from their environment and build new capabilities. The technology is shifting today’s best practice maintenance to a more a technology-driven maintenance and drastically increasing the efficiency of the product development process.
