ARC expects artificial intelligence to move to the controller level and even below, enabling truly distributed intelligence.
New ARC Advisory Group research on the PLC and PLC-based PACs market reveals that automation suppliers have started to introduce artificial intelligence for machine optimization. The companies have invested a large amount of R&D money to make these solutions and are now introducing them to the control layer. This can have a sustainable impact on programmable logic controllers (PLCs) market in the long run, as conventional programming can be replaced with teaching.
“PLCs are becoming smaller and incorporate increasingly more functionality, including artificial intelligence. ARC expects artificial intelligence to move to the controller level and even below, enabling truly distributed intelligence. This can have a long-lasting impact and can change the industry significantly,” according to Florian Güldner, Director of Research at ARC Advisory Group and key author of ARC’s PLC and PLC-based PACs Global Market Research 2017-2022 report.
