To simplify the development of complex machines, Bosch Rexroth is integrating safety technology into the Sercos automation 
network, ensuring safe communication from the control unit to the drive without any additional wiring.

In just a few short years, safety in plants has changed significantly. I just visited the Rockwell Automation Fair where Rockwell Automation was demonstrating a free safety automation building tool:

Control and saftey

Certainly, its very efficient approach to provide control and saftey over the same ethernet network. Manufacturing plants can save up alot of energy by doing so and also increase there production by making the whole system more decenteralized.

you are right, a better control and more safety will result in a better product and more output with quality with less hassel.

I agree taimoortariq. There is the added benefit in set up, since you don't have to run as many wires.

There is currently much discussion around the term "platform," which may be preceded by the adjectives "mobile," "wearable," "medical," "healthcare," etc. However, regardless of the platform being discussed, they usually have one key aspect in common: They tend to be wireless. So, why is this one aspect so fairly universal? The answer is convenience.
Everyone has a MEMS story. For most of us it’s probably the airbag that saved our lives or the life of a loved one. Perhaps it’s the tire pressure sensor that alerted us about deflation before we were stranded alone on a dark muddy road.
Bioimimicry is not merely a helpful design tool -- it also encourages designers to think not only about how to solve design problems by imitating nature, but how to make the products, materials, and systems they design more ecologically sound and nature-friendly.
