Sensors determine correct positioning for the world of Industry 4.0

Sensors determine correct positioning for the world of Industry 4.0
An important part of automation today is the detection of objects in systems. Objects have to be reliably detected and measured, as well as verifying that they are correctly positioned. The scope of possible applications is almost limitless and is continuously expanding (for example, detecting valve and flap positions, the position of PV panels for optimal exposure to light, the position of a ship's rudder and automation tasks in the machine-tool industry).
