Artificial intelligence and robotics are the future of every industrial and agricultural market. After the industrial revolution and the constant use of machinery, we have come at a time where the machines can perform without assistance or human interference. Most assembly line production systems use robots to arrange, pack, label or paint a product systematically. These robots are controlled by well-coded Softwares which are easy to use and can be quickly taught to a worker. With the increase in robotics automation and the employment of robots in factories, the production process has become quicker, more efficient, and the chance of committing a mistake is a bare minimum.

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Technology

IOT

Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) Technology has been recently adopted as a part of the production process. It works on a mechanism of sensors which are connected to each other. The aim of this technology is that it allows a central computing system to control all the process within the production unit by interconnecting all machines and systems using its core concept of machine learning. This advanced technology allows machines to react like humans by programming simulators and feeding the data of all possible outcomes.

Human-robot collaboration

Robotics automation also enhances the collaboration between humans and these robots. As and technology develops, it would become impossible to differentiate between the work done by a human and a robot. As of now, process inclined towards the arts are performed by humans, these activities need a human touch to feel and understand the working of a system while more monotonous works like packaging and labelling are done by robots.  Although some companies have robots which can spray paint cars perfectly in an equal number of coats.

 

Teaching the Robots

From the large-scale manufacturing units to medium scale businesses, all are continuously investing in Artificial Intelligence (AI) and machine learning. The robots don’t require personnel to help them execute a job, but they do need an engineer and a team to mechanics to check if something goes wrong. The world of robotics automation is trying to make these machines as independent as possible by giving them human-like traits and programming them to learn on the job. These robots are being given improved senses so that they can identify and manipulate objects into the products needed. A central system is also controlling these robots, and given this new learning aptitude, machines will be able to notify and pinpoint the issue in their configuration or a problem with the mechanical system. This will make the job of an engineer very simple, and he won’t have to open everything up to check what’s wrong. A few years from now we might have robots which can repair robots.
