In the same time, there’s been a revolution in computer science, along with a corresponding rise in computer science graduates. But in the factories and distribution centers that use computers known as programmable logic (PLC) or automation controllers (PAC), it’s been largely status quo. The same can even be said for industrial robots, the icons of automation.</div> <div class="og_rss_groups"></div><p><a href="http://machinedesign.com/controllers/br-s-modular-application-mapp-technology-sets-bar-high-automation-programming" target="_blank">read more</a></p> http://machinedesign.com/controllers/br-s-modular-application-mapp-technology-sets-bar-high-automation-programming#comments White Papers Controllers Tue, 19 May 2015 18:02:00 +0000 48931 at http://machinedesign.com
