Dans le chapitre « Automatisation des moyens photomécaniques »  : […] Les tables de prise de vue image par image assistées par ordinateur sont aujourd'hui d'un usage courant. C'est pourtant pour des recherches esthétiques particulières que John Withney avait, dans les années quarante, construit autour d'un ordinateur militaire son Cam System (Film Exercice, 1943-1944 ; Catalog, 1961), afin d' […] Lire la suite☛ http://www.universalis.fr/encyclopedie/cinema-cinemas-paralleles-le-cinema-d-animation/#i_2513

The centrifugal governor, which was invented by Christian Huygens in the seventeenth century, was used to adjust the gap between millstones.[20][21][22] Another centrifugal governor was used by a Mr. Bunce of England in 1784 as part of a model steam crane.[23][24] The centrifugal governor was adopted by James Watt for use on a steam engine in 1788 after Watt’s partner Boulton saw one at a flour mill Boulton & Watt were building.[16]

Automation is the technology by which a process or procedure is performed with minimum human assistance.[1] Automation [2] or automatic control is the use of various control systems for operating equipment such as machinery, processes in factories, boilers and heat treating ovens, switching on telephone networks, steering and stabilization of ships, aircraft and other applications and vehicles with minimal or reduced human intervention. Some processes have been completely automated.
Tantôt le vocable automatisation s'applique à une amélioration de certains appareils ménagers ou à un perfectionnement de la boîte de vitesses des automobiles, tantôt il concerne des procédés de fabrication industriels. Parfois, il se rapporte au processus qui s'accomplit, presque sans intervention humaine, lorsqu'un satellite est mis sur orbite, puis commercialement exploité ; ou encore, il désigne l'utilisation de machines dans les opérations de réservation et de vente de places dans les avions.
23. HITEMA – Groupama Gan Vie L’automatisation des tests fonctionnels SIMON Emeline 22 Glossaire Anomalies : Absence de conformité entre un comportement applicatifs attendu et un comportement obtenu en phase de test. Campagne de test : ensemble de cas de test à exécuter sur une partie de l’application. MOA : Maitrise d’ouvrage, correspond à l’ensemble des personnes définissant les besoins devant être satisfait par une application. MOE : Maitrise d’œuvre, correspond à l’ensemble des personnes en charge de la réalisation d’un composant ou d’un système. Open-Source : désigne un logiciel dans lequel le code source est à la disposition du grand public. Test de Turing : Ce test consiste à mettre en confrontation verbale un humain avec un ordinateur et un autre humain à l’aveugle.
Si vous pensez aux tâches en ligne que vous réalisez, il y a probablement des actions qui viennent à l’esprit et pour lesquels le logiciel serait très utile pour mais qui ne serait simplement pas commercialisable ou rentable pour un développeur. Ces actions seraient trop spécifiques pour en justifier le développement d’un logiciel pour les executer.
Dès que possible, l'homme créa des machines pour automatiser son travail. Si les premières machines ont été conçues pour réaliser une tâche précise (conversions de monnaie, fabrication de tissus, recensement de population,...), seuls les ordinateurs sont capables d'exécuter des travaux très différents. On peut considérer que les tentatives d' […] Lire la suite☛ http://www.universalis.fr/encyclopedie/ordinateurs/#i_2513
Automation of homes and home appliances is also thought to impact the environment, but the benefits of these features are also questioned. A study of energy consumption of automated homes in Finland showed that smart homes could reduce energy consumption by monitoring levels of consumption in different areas of the home and adjusting consumption to reduce energy leaks (such as automatically reducing consumption during the nighttime when activity is low). This study, along with others, indicated that the smart home’s ability to monitor and adjust consumption levels would reduce unnecessary energy usage. However, new research suggests that smart homes might not be as efficient as non-automated homes. A more recent study has indicated that, while monitoring and adjusting consumption levels does decrease unnecessary energy use, this process requires monitoring systems that also consume a significant amount of energy. This study suggested that the energy required to run these systems is so much so that it negates any benefits of the systems themselves, resulting in little to no ecological benefit.[54]

In closed loop control, the control action from the controller is dependent on the process output. In the case of the boiler analogy this would include a thermostat to monitor the building temperature, and thereby feed back a signal to ensure the controller maintains the building at the temperature set on the thermostat. A closed loop controller therefore has a feedback loop which ensures the controller exerts a control action to give a process output the same as the "Reference input" or "set point". For this reason, closed loop controllers are also called feedback controllers.[5]

Online shopping could be considered a form of automated retail as the payment and checkout are through an automated Online transaction processing system, with the share of online retail accounting jumping from 5.1% in 2011 to 8.3% in 2016[citation needed]. However, two-thirds of books, music and films are now purchased online. In addition, automation and online shopping could reduce demands for shopping malls, and retail property, which in America is currently estimated to account for 31% of all commercial property or around 7 billion square feet. Amazon has gained much of the growth in recent years for online shopping, accounting for half of the growth in online retail in 2016.[68] Other forms of automation can also be an integral part of online shopping, for example the deployment of automated warehouse robotics such as that applied by Amazon using Kiva Systems.
Gérer des campagnes marketing est parfois chronophage et répétitif. Aujourd’hui, il est possible de les automatiser grâce au digital et avec des logiciels adaptés (les plus contenus sont les logiciels d’emailing). En plus d’automatiser les actions marketing, ces logiciels sont flexibles et facilitent la personnalisation de vos campagnes. 80% des personnes qui pratiquent l’automatisation du marketing observent une augmentation de leurs leads ! Alors pourquoi s’en priver ?
Another major shift in automation is the increased demand for flexibility and convertibility in manufacturing processes. Manufacturers are increasingly demanding the ability to easily switch from manufacturing Product A to manufacturing Product B without having to completely rebuild the production lines. Flexibility and distributed processes have led to the introduction of Automated Guided Vehicles with Natural Features Navigation.
