Special Focus: Process Controls, Instrumentation and Automation

Integrated remote operations drive collaboration and autonomy

Sensors, equipment and devices are becoming more intelligent, opening the door for autonomous operations, which is the ability for machines and processes to run while self-diagnosing and handling problems.

Sensors, equipment and devices are becoming more intelligent, opening the door for autonomous operations, which is the ability for machines and processes to run while self-diagnosing and handling problems. When successful, the profit potential is clear. These benefits are gaining the attention of many process manufacturers; however, autonomous operation cannot be attained overnight. As process manufacturers adapt to new methods of operating, they can transition toward autonomous operations over time and achieve higher efficiency, safer practices and improved sustainability (FIG. 1). This is made possible with increased integration throughout an enterprise, supported by advances in robotics,
