Automation can be traced as far back as 270BC when the Egyptians first used a float regulator for a water clock. Over the centuries, automation processes have entered many areas of life and helped power the industrial revolution from the 17th century.
At the heart of automation is the desire to improve humanity by improving consistency, accuracy and productivity. In essence, making things easier to carry out.
Indeed, automation has become so integral to our lives that we take for granted our dishwashers, washing machines and traffic lights.
Examples of automation are all around us alleviating the mundane, elevating levels of safety and freeing up precious time on a daily basis.
