The rise of industrial automation is directly tied to the “fourth industrial revolution”, which is better known now as Industry 4.0. Originating from Germany, Industry 4.0 encompasses numerous devises, concepts, and machines.[82] It, along with the advancement of the Industrial Internet of Things (formally known as the IoT or IIoT) which is “Internet of Things is a seamless integration of diverse physical objects in the Internet through a virtual representation”.[83] These new revolutionary advancements have drawn attention to the world of automation in an entirely new light and shown ways for it to grow to increase productivity and efficiency in machinery and manufacturing facilities. Industry 4.0 works with the IIoT and software/hardware to connect in a way that (through communication technologies) add enhancements and improve manufacturing processes. Being able to create smarter, safer, and more advanced manufacturing is now possible with these new technologies. It opens up a manufacturing platform that is more reliable, consistent, and efficient that before. Implementation of systems such as SCADA are an example of software that take place in Industrial Automation today
Chaque action a un bouton vert et rouge que vous pouvez utiliser pour la connecter à d’autres actions. Le bouton vert représente le chemin à suivre si l’action est réussie et le bouton rouge représente le chemin à suivre si l’action échoue. Rendre votre robot Zennoposter à l’épreuve des pannes est possible lorsque vous utilisez pleinement cette fonctionnalité.
On peut se servir d’IFTTT pour booster sa visibilité sur le web en partageant instantanément un même statut sur Facebook, Twitter et Linkedin. Pour simplifier l’archivage de ses données numériques en enregistrant automatiquement les pièces jointes d’un e-mail dans sa Dropbox. Pour faire de la veille en demandant à recevoir une alerte dès qu’un site internet traite d’un sujet qui nous intéresse. Et puis, bien sûr, pour s’amuser en programmant l’heure d’allumage de la machine à café par exemple !
 Zalenium est une extension de Selenium Grid permettant la mise en place locale et dynamique de plateformes de tests en utilisant des conteneurs Docker. Elle utilise Docker Sélénium pour exécuter des tests automatiques sur Firefox et Chrome localement, et redirige vers un fournisseur de tests cloud (Sauce Labs, BrowserStack, TestingBot) lorsqu’un script doit être exécuté sur un navigateur différent
Likewise, a Feedback Control System is a system which tends to maintain a prescribed relationship of one system variable to another by comparing functions of these variables and using the difference as a means of control.[6] The advanced type of automation that revolutionized manufacturing, aircraft, communications and other industries, is feedback control, which is usually continuous and involves taking measurements using a sensor and making calculated adjustments to keep the measured variable within a set range.[7][8] The theoretical basis of closed loop automation is control theory.

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.
