It's almost as if Datalogic Controllers were destined to go hand-in-hand with robotics.

Yes, the potential is endless, Elizabeth. GM is now working with NASA to create robots that mimic human movements.

I agree, Rob. I can even foresee a future when humans are taken out of the equation altogether in plants (except perhaps in roles off the factory floor to manage systems and implement new technology from the back office). The potential is incredible.

Intelligence in motion control has come a long way in recent years, Elizabeth. Combined with robotics, it's amazing.

Motion control has always been an integral part of plant automation and as systems get more intelligent, so much this function. Even the most basic components of motion control systems should meet the new standards for smart motion control.
