Autonomous Machines & Systems

Autonomous machines and systems are those that can learn, adapt and act independently of human control. Autonomous self-driving cars are the first thing people think about in this domain, but many sectors are exploring applications which don’t require the continual input of local operators at all, from smart energy grids to implantable blood glucose monitors.

Why is this a future industrial skill? As an already highly specialized industry explores ways to answer increasing productivity requirements, new concepts and technologies such as autonomous machines and systems are among the answers that help manufacturers work around the clock, help ensure reliability and predictability – while in many cases making improvements in the health and safety of workers.
