1947: General Motors establishes an “automation” department to oversee the development of mechanized controls for assembly lines.

1960s: Integrated circuits, and advances in computer storage capacity and controls, expand industrial applications for robotics.

1961: The first true robot is introduced, to unload parts in a U.S. die-casting operation.

1981: A revolutionary design that increases the speed and agility of robots, SCARA (Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm) is introduced in Japan and soon put into operation by Mitsubishi.

1990s: Automation connects with business process management (BPM) to create advanced, integrated robotics systems.

1996: A computer, Deep Blue, loses to reigning world chess champion Garry Kasparov — but defeats him in a 1997 rematch. This event ushers in rapid development of AI in robotics.

2000: Honda unveils ASIMO (Advanced Step In Innovation Mobility), a revolutionary humanoid robot.

2011: Apple introduces SIRI, voice-recognition software that stimulates rapid VR development.

AUTOMATION PRESENT

Major Applications​
