The automation of vehicles could prove to have a substantial impact on the environment, although the nature of this impact could be beneficial or harmful depending on several factors. Because automated vehicles are much less likely to get into accidents compared to human-driven vehicles, some precautions built into current models (such as anti-lock brakes or laminated glass) would not be required for self-driving versions. Removing these safety features would also significantly reduce the weight of the vehicle, thus increasing fuel economy and reducing emissions per mile. Self-driving vehicles are also more precise with regard to acceleration and breaking, and this could contribute to reduced emissions. Self-driving cars could also potentially utilize fuel-efficient features such as route mapping that is able to calculate and take the most efficient routes. Despite this potential to reduce emissions, some researchers theorize that an increase of production of self-driving cars could lead to a boom of vehicle ownership and use. This boom could potentially negate any environmental benefits of self-driving cars if a large enough number of people begin driving personal vehicles more frequently.[53]

Une caractéristique de l'automatisation moderne est qu'elle n'a pas toujours pour but d'assurer directement la commande des processus mais parfois seulement d'apporter une aide à la décision. C'est le rôle de ce que l'on appelle les systèmes d'intelligence artificielle qui, s'ils ont une vocation spécifique, sont nommés systèmes experts. Ces systèmes d'intelligence artificielle se répandent [...]
IFTTT (If This Then That) est l’outil le plus connu en matière d’automatisation de tâches. Disponible dans une version web ainsi que sous la forme d’applications mobiles pour les plateformes Android et IOS, il permet de créer des petits programmes baptisés « applets ». Leurs rôles ? Etablir des interactions entre les différents outils numériques que l’on utilise au quotidien afin d’automatiser des tâches courantes.

Access Rights Manager can enable IT and security admins to quickly analyze user authorizations and access permissions to systems, data, and files, and help them protect their organizations from the potential risks of data loss and data breaches. Customized reports can show who has access to what and when access can be generated to support compliance requirements. User provisioning and deprovisioning can also be done using role-specific templates.
It was from the automotive industry in the USA that the PLC was born. Before the PLC, control, sequencing, and safety interlock logic for manufacturing automobiles was mainly composed of relays, cam timers, drum sequencers, and dedicated closed-loop controllers. Since these could number in the hundreds or even thousands, the process for updating such facilities for the yearly model change-over was very time consuming and expensive, as electricians needed to individually rewire the relays to change their operational characteristics.
The logic performed by telephone switching relays was the inspiration for the digital computer. The first commercially successful glass bottle blowing machine was an automatic model introduced in 1905.[37] The machine, operated by a two-man crew working 12-hour shifts, could produce 17,280 bottles in 24 hours, compared to 2,880 bottles made by a crew of six men and boys working in a shop for a day. The cost of making bottles by machine was 10 to 12 cents per gross compared to $1.80 per gross by the manual glassblowers and helpers.
Automation is essential for many scientific and clinical applications.[78] Therefore, automation has been extensively employed in laboratories. From as early as 1980 fully automated laboratories have already been working.[79] However, automation has not become widespread in laboratories due to its high cost. This may change with the ability of integrating low-cost devices with standard laboratory equipment.[80][81] Autosamplers are common devices used in laboratory automation.

L’automatisation des tests fonctionnels SIMON Emeline Annexe 4 : Exemple de test avec Selenium, classe Selenium. public class selenium { private Selenium selenium; @Before public void setUp() throws Exception { WebDriver driver = new FirefoxDriver(); String baseUrl = "http://localhost:8080/tutoselenium"; selenium = new WebDriverBackedSelenium(driver, baseUrl); } @Test public void testSelenium() throws Exception { // Connexion au site selenium.open("/tutoselenium/"); // On est page 1, on va page 2 selenium.type("id=contentForm:pageText", "2"); selenium.click("id=contentForm:nextPage"); selenium.waitForPageToLoad("30000"); // puis page 3 selenium.click("id=contentForm:page3Button"); selenium.waitForPageToLoad("30000"); // et retour page 1 selenium.select("id=contentForm:pageList_input", "value=1"); selenium.click("id=contentForm:nextPageButton"); selenium.waitForPageToLoad("30000"); // On passe en anglais selenium.click("id=headerForm:english_button"); // etc. } @After public void tearDown() throws Exception { selenium.stop(); } }
cents ans. Mais les outils numériques peuvent influencer leur mise en œuvre. Par exemple, pouvoir fournir immédiatement un retour pertinent à un élève lors de la réalisation d’une série d’exercices peut favoriser le processus d’automatisation. De même, pour comprendre un phénomène dynamique complexe (comme le galop du cheval), le fait de pouvoir […] Lire la suite☛ http://www.universalis.fr/encyclopedie/apprentissage-avec-le-numerique/#i_2513
