Automation is the use of self-operating physical machines, computer software, and other technologies to perform tasks that are usually done by people. This process is designed to automatically follow a predetermined sequence of operations or respond to encoded instructions. Robotics is the design, creation, and use of robots to perform tasks. These are physical robots that substitute for (or replicate) human actions.
However, automation can be also be used with robotics. For example, an assembly line robot that assembles a car in an automotible factory. Automation with robotics is becoming more and more prevalant in the manufacturing and engineering space, as it can eliminate downtime, human error and cost, while at the same time it can improve accuracy and allow for human workers to focus on other tasks. Automation with robotics is especially ideal for certain industries such as automotive, medical technology, material handling, food and beverage production, restaurant automation and packaging.
