  • CAN bus
    A Controller Area Network (CAN bus) is a vehicle bus standard designed to allow microcontrollers and devices to communicate with each other in applications without a host computer.
  • CANopen
    CANopen is a communication protocol and device profile specification for embedded systems used in automation.
  • Mechatronics
    Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of science that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, systems engineering and control engineering.
  • Process control
    Process control is an engineering discipline that deals with architectures, mechanisms and algorithms for maintaining the output of a specific process within a desired range.
  • TANGO
    The TANGO control system is a free open source device-oriented controls toolkit for controlling any kind of hardware or software and building SCADA systems.
  • SprutCAM
    SprutCAM (32/64 bits version) is a mid-level CAM (Computer-Aided Manufacturing) program that runs on Microsoft Windows and was developed by SPRUT Technology, LTD.
  • Programmable logic controller
    A programmable logic controller (PLC), or programmable controller is an industrial digital computer which has been ruggedised and adapted for the control of manufacturing processes, such as assembly lines, or robotic devices, or any activity that requires high reliability control and ease of programming and process fault diagnosis.
  • G-code
    G-code (also RS-274), which has many variants, is the common name for the most widely used numerical control (NC) programming language.
  • Predix (software)
    Predix is General Electric's software platform for the collection of data from industrial machines.
  • Technological unemployment
    Technological unemployment is the loss of jobs caused by technological change.
  • I/Gear
    I/Gear, Inc. is a software and solutions company based in Louisville, Kentucky.
  • Organization for Machine Automation and Control
    The Organization for Machine Automation and Control (OMAC) is a global organization that supports the machine automation and operational needs of manufacturing.
  • PieP
    Process Image Exchange Protocol (PieP) is a very simple Fieldbus protocol used for process automation.
  • Critical Manufacturing
    Critical Manufacturing is a spin-off company of Critical Software.
