Edgewater Automation in Automotive and Transportation Industries

As an early adopter of machine vision, robotics, material handling, and all forms of automation technologies, the automotive and transportation industry has been a primary driver of technology adoption by the manufacturing sector. Today, around the world, the automotive industry is a major driver for the adoption of manufacturing automation systems, automated testing and assembly, and the productivity and quality gains that come with successful automation technology projects. In short, the automotive industry has been a precursor and champion of today’s Industry 4.0, characterized by machine-to-machine communication.

With so much emphasis on highly automated mass production, quality requirements that can affect human safety, and a high degree of cost sensitivity, manufacturers of automobiles, commercial vehicles, and aerospace and related vehicles place a premium on having a close and trust-based collaborative relationship with suppliers and technology providers that support a high degree of automation and robotic solutions in production processes.
