Some common examples are domestic thermostats that control boilers, the first automatic telephone switchboards, electronic navigation systems or the more advanced algorithms behind autonomous cars. The automotive industry is extremely broad and progressive. The operating techniques used in cars are improving and being automated day by day. For example, during the early days, vehicles relied on manual transmission systems, but in today's world, the manual transmission system has been replaced by an automatic transmission system.
The AMT uses a set of planetary gears instead of the traditional gear pair. The automatic transmission uses a torque converter, while the manual system uses a clutch package. The AMT has many merits over the manual power transmission system. Some of them include improved performance, greater endurance, greater reliability, etc.
Before the introduction of FASTag and other related technologies, toll stations were quite time consuming. It was necessary to follow a tedious process. The process consisted of waiting in long lines to deliver the money to the person in charge, pick up the receipt, wait for the operator to remove the barricade and, finally, to be able to continue the journey. FASTags reduce this inconvenience by automatically connecting the taxpayer and the recipient.
This eliminates the need for a manual operator and also reduces long queues. In this way, we make our journey smooth and unhindered by barricades. Power backup devices are the best examples of automation. When the normal power supply is cut off, devices such as UPS, inverters, etc.
connect us directly to the stored backup energy. These devices are useful in that they allow the user to avoid an abrupt power outage, which is quite inconvenient. The algorithm and configuration of the device allow you to detect the need to activate and deactivate the operation accordingly. That's why the device goes into charging mode automatically when the power is restored.
A space probe with semi-autonomous functionality. For example, a planetary explorer might decide to take a particular soil sample. While spacecraft come in many shapes and sizes and are designed to meet separate and specific mission objectives, they have a lot in common. Future space exploration missions require complex vehicles, habitats, robotic assistants, and self-sufficient spacecraft systems that adapt to complex and rapidly changing environments.
Automated planning is crucial to maximize the scientific performance of deep space probes and even of terrestrial observation systems, and to complement and improve the capabilities of human beings participating in missions.
