Beyond Manufacturing: Industrial Automation Drives an Array of Advances

Print Reprint
     
A look at how industrial automation technologies are helping to advance industries outside of the manufacturing and processing industries in which they are typically used.

I also saw numerous applications of industrial automation being applied to advances outside of manufacturing. In this video, I highlight three of those advances, including a robot that helps diagnose and treat autistic children, the world’s largest fusion reactor where researchers are seeking to prove that fusion energy is a viable energy source, and the simulation and measurement of musculoskeletal movement.
