Industrial robotics is a sub-branch in the industrial automation that aids in various manufacturing processes. Such manufacturing processes include; machining, welding, painting, assembling and material handling to name a few.[85] Industrial robots utilizes various mechanical, electrical as well as software systems to allow for high precision, accuracy and speed that far exceeds any human performance. The birth of industrial robot came shortly after World War II as United States saw the need for a quicker way to produce industrial and consumer goods.[86] Servos, digital logic and solid state electronics allowed engineers to build better and faster systems and overtime these systems were improved and revised to the point where a single robot is capable of running 24 hours a day with little or no maintenance. In 1997, there were 700,000 industrial robots in use, the number has risen to 1.8M in 2017[87]
I would point out that depending upon what site you are on, there may be a more efficient way (perhaps an exposed web service) than scraping data from the page and working with mechanize/selenium to do what you want. If you are on the web, browser driver tools are the hammers, and they will get the screws in the wood, but sometimes another tool will work better.
Bien évidemment, cet article vous donne les bases de l'utilisation de cette librairie. Il est fort recommandé d'aller se documenter directement sur le site officiel ( pour en apprendre d'avantage notamment sur les autres manières de localiser les éléments. Cette librairie couplée ou non avec d'autres est très puissante et permet de faire énormément de choses. Pour ma part je m'en suis servi pour récupérer automatiquement des centaines de fichiers Excel plutôt que de le faire à la main. Ou tout simplement pour faire du scrapping (Voir mes autres articles).
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.

I’ve used other automation tools besides VBA. Ubot and iMacros are both excellent, and powerful programs (their own programming languages, really). In some respects they’re easier, and for 99% of web automation tasksg, you really can’t go wrong with either. But I got to where I only used VBA because my programming was getting into Windows API’s and command line calls (Visual Basic is tightly integrated with Windows), plus I often found myself using Excel alongside these programs anyway. I discovered there’s almost nothing VBA can’t do with automating Windows and Internet Explorer (even making IE appear as a different browser), and it seemed to me investing time learning Microsoft’s Visual Basic programming language just made more sense.
