The paradigm for manufacturing companies has changed in the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Smart factories which fuse the Internet of Things (IoT), as well as Artificial Intelligence (AI) and big data are in the limelight. Factory Automation (FA) is a must for the smart factory technology to be achieved. Sensors and controllers are key components in FA. On this week's #Korea 4.0, we visit Autonics, a company that is leading the Factory Automation industry. South Korean companies were heavily reliant on imports for the components related to Factory Automation, but this company has succeeded in localizing the components. It's the No.1 company in Korea and is exporting to the foreign market. Let us learn more about Autonics and its success, as well as the future of the Korean Factory Automation industry.
