Industrial automation of an installation or process can be considered as control application processes or computer systems applications. The world of industrial automation has progressed rapidly over the last decades and the growth, maturity is driven by technological advances, high expectations from the user and the fresh maturity of the industrial processing technologies. Industrial automation is a vast and diverse discipline, comprising processes, machines, electronics, software and computer systems that work together towards a common set of objectives (increasing production, improving quality, reducing costs and maximizing flexibility). The research will be divided into 4 stages and will be carried out with the support of the Technical University of Cluj-Napoca.
