Automation is the individual use or integrated configuration of computer software, machines or other technologies ranging from fully mechanical systems to fully virtual networks, very simple to intensely complex in functionality, to carry out a task that would typically be done by a human worker. Robotics is a segment of automation involving a machine (robot) capable of making independent movements programmed to perform complex tasks ranging from simple handling of parts to full machine tending, welding, grinding and other operations typically performed by a human worker.
