Many people associate the term automation with robots, but it’s not always the case. Similar to how there are various types of pasta, there are different kinds of automation systems; this includes motion control and robotics system. These machines make our lives easier by completing repetitive tasks without human assistance, and are often found in the manufacturing industries. While they both may perform similar tasks, operating them is another story. Below are the differences between these two types of systems.
