About the book
The technological development in automation aims to modernize industrial processes, so that they can take place with minimal human operation. Automatics has wide applications in the command and control of various equipment, such as: industrial machines, technological processes, communications networks, ships, airplanes, vehicles, and so on, reducing as much human intervention as possible. With the help of the automation equipment, the mechanical, hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical, electronic, computers and assemblies formed from them are controlled. The use of the automation and control has as advantages the reduction of the physical work, the reduction of the energetic consumption, the reduction of the consumption of material, the increase precision of processing and of the quality of the products.
The book Automation and Control aims to publish original, previously unpublished, case studies, research, survey and tutorial works as chapters, on both applied and theoretical aspects, which are covered by book’s topics and keywords. Consequently, the authors may send chapters covering applications in manufacturing and industrial automation, advanced and intelligent control systems, robotics, computer controlled systems and other domains.
