Autonomy and Automation

In the future, machines will increasingly operate without human help. Highly automated driving is at the center of attention. However, the automation megatrend has far-reaching implications for almost every area in which technology plays a role. In addition to autonomous driving, examples include industrial automation, smart factories, or smart agricultural machines, which are already affecting the way we work and produce goods. Smart farming or precision farming are among the core technological trends to feed a growing global population and counteract urbanization.
