The introduction of prime movers, or self-driven machines advanced grain mills, furnaces, boilers, and the steam engine created a new requirement for automatic control systems including temperature regulators (invented in 1624 (see Cornelius Drebbel)), pressure regulators (1681), float regulators (1700) and speed control devices. Another control mechanism was used to tent the sails of windmills. It was patented by Edmund Lee in 1745.[16] Also in 1745, Jacques de Vaucanson invented the first automated loom. The design of feedback control systems up through the Industrial Revolution was by trial-and-error, together with a great deal of engineering intuition. Thus, it was more of an art than a science. In the mid-19th century mathematics was first used to analyze the stability of feedback control systems. Since mathematics is the formal language of automatic control theory, we could call the period before this time the prehistory of control theory.
PhantomJS est un navigateur sans interface graphique utilisé pour automatiser des interactions avec des pages web. PhantomJS intègre entre autre la navigation automatisée, la capture d'écran, les comportements utilisateurs. Il permet donc de faire des tests fonctionnels. L’environnement de navigation reproduit par PhantomJS est similaire à Safari ou à Google Chrome.
Digital electronics helped too. Former analogue-based instrumentation was replaced by digital equivalents which can be more accurate and flexible, and offer greater scope for more sophisticated configuration, parametrization and operation. This was accompanied by the fieldbus revolution which provided a networked (i.e. a single cable) means of communicating between control systems and field level instrumentation, eliminating hard-wiring.
But the code wants to run all at once, in a millisecond. By the time IE actually loads the page of search results, the entire subroutine is long over. We have to slow things down and wait for the browser while its navigating. We could use something like Application.Wait(Now + TimeValue("00:00:05")) to wait 5 seconds, but if the page loads faster we’re wasting time waiting for nothing, and if the page takes longer we’re in the same pickle as before. Do While objIE.Busy = True Or objIE.readyState <> 4: DoEvents: Loop is an elegant Do...Loop solution consisting of 3 VBA statements we’ve tidied up on one line, using colons (:) to connect them. It’s saying: while IE is busy navigating, just sit here and run in circles. objIE.Busy = True and objIE.readyState <> 4 (<> means not equal) are essentially the same thing –one could probably be ommitted– but just to make sure the page is really done loading we make both of these conditions requirements for getting out of the loop, by using the logical operator Or. The DoEvents part is technically not needed but we add it in the loop to free up processing resources and allow other things to happen within Excel during this time, asynchronous to the running loop. For the over-achievers out there, here are some other ways we could have written this line of code to do the same thing.
3. HITEMA – Groupama Gan Vie L’automatisation des tests fonctionnels SIMON Emeline 2 Remerciements Je tiens à remercier dans un premier temps toute l’équipe pédagogique de l’école HITEMA. Je remercie Jean-Paul DAVID et Aurélien ARRIBEY, sans qui je n’aurais pu effectuer mon alternance chez Groupama Gan Vie. Je tiens à remercier Etienne BONTEMPS et Florence MOUGEL qui m’ont accompagné dans mon travail de tous les jours en m’apportant leur expérience et leurs conseils, leur écoute et leur pédagogie. Je remercie tout particulièrement Jérémy LE HELLOCO, mon tuteur depuis 2014, pour toute son attention et son suivi à mon égard, ses conseils et son expérience au sein de Groupama. Enfin, je remercie toute l’équipe de la MOA Collectives, pour leur écoute et leur soutien tout au long de mon apprentissage.
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.

Based on a formula by Gilles Saint-Paul, an economist at Toulouse 1 University, the demand for unskilled human capital declines at a slower rate than the demand for skilled human capital increases.[100] In the long run and for society as a whole it has led to cheaper products, lower average work hours, and new industries forming (i.e., robotics industries, computer industries, design industries). These new industries provide many high salary skill based jobs to the economy. By 2030, between 3 and 14 percent of the global workforce will be forced to switch job categories due to automation eliminating jobs in an entire sector. While the number of jobs lost to automation are often offset by jobs gained from technological advances, the same type of job lost is not the same one replaced and that leading to increasing unemployment in the lower-middle class. This occurs largely in the US and developed countries where technological advances contribute to higher demand for high skilled labor but demand for middle wage labor continues to fall. Economists call this trend “income polarization” where unskilled labor wages are driven down and skilled labor is driven up and it is predicted to continue in developed economies.[101]
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 [...]
Many supermarkets and even smaller stores are rapidly introducing Self checkout systems reducing the need for employing checkout workers. In the United States, the retail industry employs 15.9 million people as of 2017 (around 1 in 9 Americans in the workforce). Globally, an estimated 192 million workers could be affected by automation according to research by Eurasia Group.[68]

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]
Dans le chapitre « Les tireuses automatiques »  : […] La nécessité, pour les grands laboratoires de façonnage, de pouvoir tirer très rapidement les négatifs des amateurs a obligé les fabricants de matériels à concevoir des tireuses automatiques à haut rendement très sophistiquées, tireuses analogiques dans un premier temps. Elles sont en général limitées aux formats APS, 110 ou 135 sur des largeurs de […] Lire la suite☛ http://www.universalis.fr/encyclopedie/photographie-materiels-de-traitement-argentique/#i_2513

PhantomJS va nous servir de "Web-Driver" et cela sera là son unique utilité. De quoi s'agit-il ? Afin que Python puisse interagir avec le navigateur Web (Chrome, Firefox ou autres), de la même manière que la communication avec une base de données, il nous faut un driver (pilote). C'est là qu'intervient le Web Driver, il permet la communication entre le navigateur Web et notre script Python. De base, Selenium peut utiliser différents drivers pour différents navigateurs (Chrome, Firefox, Opéra) mais ce qui nous intéresse, ce n'est pas d'ouvrir un navigateur mais d'avoir un navigateur headless (sans interface graphique, uniquement en ligne de commandes). C'est là qu'intervient PhantomJS, qui fournit lui-même son Web Driver. L'utilité c'est donc la rapidité d'exécution par rapport aux navigateurs classiques.
