Automation for bioprocessing and bioproduction

K. C. Ting, Tony Grift

Research output: Contribution to journalShort surveypeer-review


Agricultural mechanization has made remarkable contributions to production of food, materials, and fuels from biomass. The purpose of automation is to equip engineering systems with capabilities of perception, reasoning, communication, and task planning. Task planning and execution are to effect device operations mainly for control activation and physical work where communication coordinates information flow from various sources to appropriate destinations. Some of the challenges faced by automation in bioproduction include making return on investment attractive, a higher technology readiness level, better market acceptance, and an improved economic viability for automated systems.
