Automation

Automation is basically the delegation of human control function to technical equipment. It is the use of control systems such as computers, PLCs, Microcontrollers to control machinery and processes to reduce the need for human sensory and mental requirements as well.

Industrial Automation i.e. to “Automate Industry” is the basic need of almost every type of manufacturing and production unit today. Food/ Beverage, Metal, Mining, Power, Textile, Petrochemical, Machine Manufacturing, Automobile etc are the few examples where we see the automation today.

The Main Objective of this Workshop is to make the aspiring engineers acquainted with the conceptual as well as practical knowledge of the Industrial Automation, Embedded System & Latest Technologies being used to achieve Automation.
