The Automation Village: Virtual Tradeshow #9

Automation from the Future!

Strap on your jet pack and step into our time machine as we journey through the past, present and future of industrial automation.

This light-hearted livestream will include introductions to emerging technologies from virtual exhibitors, discussions of emerging philosophies and the chance for you to ask your own questions about where industry is heading.
