Trialling automated plant on real world sites – the highlights and challenges

TRL are developing a program of trials of connected and automated plant that are intended to take technologies that might be a good idea in principle, and turn them into business as usual solutions in practice. In this session Dr Ianto Guy will discuss some of the highlights and challenges of taking connected and automated plant out into the wild, and will make some recommendations about how we can make the adoption of automation run more smoothly when it encounters the challenges of real world projects.
