Industrial automation is divided into so many categories
Industrial automation, literally, is easy to understand. It is the use of automatic control and automatic adjustment devices in industrial production to replace the tendency of manual manipulation of machines and machine systems for processing and production. Simply put, you can do some repetitive work through the machine.
But I did not expect that a word that is easy to understand, there are still classifications, and there are still five. These five are: intelligent manufacturing, multi-agent, whole subsystem, hotspot technology, warehouse automation. The latter four can be understood, because those may be some technical problems in industrial automation. However, smart manufacturing is actually a category in industrial automation, and Xiaobian is really confused.
Baidu explained that intelligent manufacturing is a human-machine integrated intelligent system composed of intelligent machines and human experts. It can carry out intelligent activities such as analysis, reasoning, judgment and conception in the manufacturing process. And decision making, etc. Through the cooperation of humans and intelligent machines, we will expand, extend and partially replace the mental work of human experts in the manufacturing process. It extends the concept of manufacturing automation to be flexible, intelligent and highly integrated.
