This webinar includes some details about the trends that are relevant to Functional Safety of machinery. We will discuss how emerging technologies are being applied to applications like ‘Industrial Robots’ and ‘Automated Guided Vehicles’ (AGVs), and a combination of those things ‘Automated Mobile Robots’ (AMRs).
We will also discuss some of the challenges for Functional Safety when applying the Internet of Things (IoT) in industrial processes, the so called Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT).
