Automation is making people’s lives easier. It is making lives easier at home and at work. Many people cannot even imagine a world without technology. Take a look at these five areas to determine how automation can change you life for the better.
1. The Automated Home
When people see automated smart homes, they usually stand in awe of what technology can do for them. The new devices are being introduced to connect to smart phones and make people’s lives easier. These devices can allow residents to control the temperature, turn on or off the lights, turn on the sprinklers, monitor the home video surveillance, or even turn on and off appliances. It’s amazing what home automation can do for you.
Are you having work done on your home while you’re away, and you don’t want to give a key to the maintenance person? Simply unlock your doors with your smart phone when you see the maintenance man arrive to your home via video. It’s easy! Convenience is the name of the game, and technology has made home automation almost a necessity instead of a want.
2. The Automated Workplace
Automated warehouse and workplace can make life easier for manufacturers and employees. Robots are capable of precise and repetitive motions that may tire a typical human. This makes production more efficient. Robots can make semiconductor chips in a closed clean environment and produce technology products faster than any human ever could. Every manufacturing company should consider automation to remain competitive in the workplace.
Automated shipping is another way warehouses are becoming more efficient. When packages are sorted and shipped manually, there are greater chances for error. Automated labeling systems and barcode scanning systems make the process run smoothly. Automated sorting and shipping saves time, effort, and money. And with Amazon drones in the works, even the delivery process could become automated in a matter of years.
3. Car Automation
Cars are being designed to parallel park, drive, and also pre-adjust seats to your liking. All of these features make vehicles safer and easier to drive. Soon, you’ll be able to set your destination and the vehicle will drive there for you. This will lower stress levels and reduce road rage. Every driver is looking forward to more automation in cars.
4. Medical Automation
Robots are in operating rooms around the world. Many patients with cancer are opting to have their tumors removed by robots and lasers. While the concept is new, it is still growing in popularity. There are some concerns about precision, but for the most part, the operations have been executed without major difficulties. Robotic surgeries usually equate to smaller incisions and faster healing times. Most patients will not argue with faster recovery times that will get them back to doing their daily activities within a shorter period of time.
5. Automated Banking
Automated banking is one of the most useful new types of automation in the workforce. When you go to the bank now, you can sit in front of a terminal and speak to a teller remotely. No longer are the tellers physically required to be in the banks, but can work from any location without threat of people harming them during a robbery. Automated banking is as convenient as banking in a physical branch.
