Since entering the 21st century, computers and subsequent digitalization have propelled our technological capabilities forward by more than a hundred-fold. This era of computer technology has revolutionized the way we exchange information, communicate, and conduct work. Much of this transformation is attributed to the introduction of advanced data analytics, the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, and machine learning.
With the ongoing development of these innovations, our industrial capacities have advanced to the extent that automation, cyber-physical systems, and robotics are shaping the landscape of smart factories. These cutting-edge manufacturing facilities, present worldwide, have significantly elevated various sectors, including automotive and consumer electronics. The collaborative synergy between humans and machines within these smart factories has resulted in substantial improvements in overall production, performance, and sustainability.
