Such as home automation, by now we are all familiar with it. There are various areas where automation has made its use and presence felt. Like that of, laboratory automation, console automation, building automation, banking automation, broadcast automation, integrated library system, etc. The concept of automation and its presence in human life is quite beneficial as it reduces human interaction or intervention with machinery labor.

The concept of this building automation system is to improve the comfort of the occupant of the building, reduce energy consumption, cut down on operating costs and most importantly, it improves the life cycle of utilities.
- Laboratory automation
It is a multi-disciplinary concept, to research, develop, optimize, and capitalize on technologies. In laboratory automation, the operations are professional that are commercial and academic. It reduces the lab processes where manual labor takes time while automation does it faster. It is used in the field of software algorithms, methodologies, lab instruments, devices, etc. the application of laboratory automation has improved the use of time and remain competitive.
Apart from these mentioned above, automation in the various field has made life easier and more technologically advanced. It has reduced human intervention in many fields, improved the use of time and, has made work methodical and strategically correct.
