Key Technology Trend for 2013

Companies progressively use automated controls to manage cost business operations and minimize business risk, says Turnkey Consulting.

Automated control is the application of control theory for regulation of processes without direct human intervention. Simply put, it means that it can self-regulate a technical-plant (such as a machine or industrial process) operating condition or parameters by the controller with minimal human engagement.
