AI & ML
Covers artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) techniques and strategies being applied to automation, control and instrumentation applications.
Covers logic devices, silicon chips, embedded systems, board-level devices, PLCs, PACs, IPCs, edge computers, loop controllers, DCSs, process controls, servers (virtual machines) and in SCADA and HMI systems.
Edge & Cloud Computing
Edge computing moves or distributes control, analytics and networking close to the industrial process (the edge). Doing so can streamline control architectures. Cloud computing moves applications, analytics and storage to servers outside a facility.
Machine Process & Safety
Highlighting safety & cybersecurity issues for control, automation and instrumentation professionals.
Data Management & Analytics
Data management and analytics are increasingly important for automation, controls and instrumentation as means to more effectively create and deliver information from industrial data created and gathered.
Digital transformation is moving industries from manual, paper-based, analog or mechanical systems to more digital-based automation and controls to streamline, add efficiencies and optimize industrial processes.
Motors & Drives
Myriad motors types in rotary, linear, or planar designs can be controlled by variable frequency drives (VFDs) to optimize industrial applications, save energy, and improve efficiency and safety.
Covers developments in system integration from the highest levels down to the more exacting issues involving control components and buses.
Mechatronics & Motion Control
Mechatronics (the combination of mechanical and electronic engineering) and motion control advance machine control, machine design, and use of motion-related technologies for industrial applications.
