Since entering the 21st century, the evolution of computers and subsequent digitalization has exponentially enhanced our technological capabilities. This era of computer technology has fundamentally transformed the way we exchange information, communicate, and conduct work. Much of this transformation can be attributed to the advent of advanced data analytics, the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI) technologies, and machine learning.
As these ongoing advancements continue to unfold, our industrial capacities have progressed to the extent that automation, cyber-physical systems, and robotics are shaping the landscape of smart factories. These advanced manufacturing facilities, spread across the globe, have significantly elevated various sectors, including automotive and consumer electronics. The collaborative efforts between humans and machines within these smart factories have resulted in substantial improvements in overall production, performance, and sustainability.
