Industrial Automation is a widely used discipline in the industry that could be defined as the cross-sectional area of various engineering branches including electrical, electronics, mechanics, material science, chemical, communication, computer science, software, and information technology. Industrial Automation, makes a path for these disciplines to be able to communicate with each other using transmission protocols and implements the required commands automatically in a robustly controlled environment.

Industrial Automation has been created based on innovation and innovation never stops. There is always demands so requirement for innovative techniques to meet these demands as well.

In this case, the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) as the enabler of Industry 4.0 is an innovative revolution of a digital transformation of different aspects of our life from home to cities and industries.

Smart factories are the heart of Industry 4.0 that get the advantage of Artificial Intelligence (AI), Robotics, Cloud computing, Big Data analytics, Machine learning, biotechnology, and nanotechnology, and externally interfaces such as smart supply chain, smart grids, and etc. Smart factories will provide optimum methods and techniques in manufacturing beyond our expectations.

Key takeaways from this webinar:

  • Industrial Automation (IA), Industry 4.0, Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT), Smart Factories, Robotics

Presenter: Dr. Ali Marzoughi, EIT Lecturer and Unit Coordinator

"After being graduated as an electrical/electronics engineer, I started my career in the oil and gas industry as an instrumentation engineer which has been followed by taking managerial responsibilities in the same and other industries.

My passion to control engineering encouraged me to continue my study in the field of Mechatronics and automatic control which focused on Evolutionary programming for optimising performance and temperature control of single shaft gas turbines. I continued my research in robotics (multi agent systems) and navigation control which resulted in developing several decentralised control algorithms for autonomous ground based mobile robots for decision making on obstacle avoidance, target tracking, surveillance and intruder detection."
