Name Professor Course Date Industrial automation system in food processing Introduction Industrial automation refers to the use of control systems such as robots or computers and information technologies for handling various processes and machineries in an industry to replace human labor. Industrial automation is the second step beyond mechanization in the scope of industrialization. Previously the purpose of automation was to increase productivity. This is because automated systems can work 24 hours a day. Robotics and automation in the food industry provides a comprehensive overview of current and emerging technologies and their application in different industry sectors.
