Automation for a brighter future

2021 may not have got off to the start we were all hoping for. But in amongst the lockdown chaos and grey, rainy days, there’s reasons to be cheerful too.

Below, you'll find three ways that automation could make 2021 a much brighter year indeed.

1. Improved inventory management means fewer shortages

In spring 2020, stores around the world came up short on one, sensitive commodity: toilet paper. Can we stop the same thing happening again?

Yes! Automation is predicted to play a much stronger role in managing, analysing and stocking inventory across a range of industries. That way, shortages are spotted and resolved — before they become a problem.

2. Growing the UVC disinfectant industry with automation

Coronavirus is invisible to the naked eye. Now, the solution may be too.

UVC disinfectant uses ultraviolet light to fight viruses in hard-to-reach environments, like air ducts and public spaces after hours. Automation plays a big role here, with Southeast Asia leading the way.

3. More automation in more places thanks to 5G

With 5G getting an official (albeit small) launch at the end of 2020, the possibilities for automation are expanding rapidly. Faster data sharing and increased bandwidth mean more users can benefit from automation — from factory floors to hospital wards, and everywhere in between.
