If you’ve visited a major fast food outlet in a city recently you have probably noticed just how advanced the ordering systems are. In some major chains, you don’t even need to speak to a member of staff to place your order, you simply select the meal you’d like on an LCD screen and the a receipt is printed with an order number. That number is then called and you can walk up to collect your meal. It’s crazy to think just how far these chains have come, we’ve moved on so quickly from basic tills that open and close, with waiters holding a pen and paper, to now; a restaurant that requires very little interaction at all. Of course, there is still the opportunity to order your meal at the counter, but the fact that you don’t even have to nowadays goes to show just how far we’ve come and things will only become more automated in the future. Perhaps we won’t even need chefs!

Lasers are used all over the world, up to industrial levels. It is one of the most versatile modern inventions, and is applied to many different processes.
Lasers are made use of by various different industries, including: automotive, industrial, medical, military, aerospace and electronics. Each industry that uses lasers tends to use them in different ways. For example manufacturing industries may use lasers to weld and measure materials, where as in medical fields lasers are used to mark instruments or within medical equipment.
Lasers are often used by working professionals and can even be used at home. While they are not necessarily cheap, a laser can be easily purchased at a store or online and be used for cutting, etching and marking as well as many other applications. Lasers like these can engrave on many different kinds of metal, plastic, wood, or glass and are recommended for marking parts that are expected to experience high wear.

The design of a concrete dam depends largely on the purpose of the dam, as well as the configuration of the site on which it will be built. There are two primary types of dams, overflow dams and non-overflow.
Overflow dams block the flow of a stream and harness the water for power generation, they are also often used to improve navigation and provide irrigation water. An overflow dam is designed so that water can be released, allowing the level of water in the reservoir to be regulated by a series of sluice gates, spillways and outlet tunnels.
Non-overflow dams are mainly used to tore water for drinking water supply, irrigation, or power; they also have a spillway, but its use is restricted for emergencies to lower the water level quickly during floods. The methods for releasing stored water in non-overflow dams are limited when compared to overflow as this design does not contain any outlet structures. However, water may be sometimes be pumped out for irrigation or other uses.

Almost everyone has seen a billboard, they are a common sight in cities and along the highways, which is why they are used by business companies. They are a perfect way to send a message about what a company can offer the passers by.

It’s easy to spend 5 minutes soaking up all the visual imagery on a billboard when you have to wait 15 minutes for the next train.
As billboard manufacture becomes increasingly sophisticated. More and more sign companies are taking advantage of market research data to optimize their billboards. The placement, size, imagery even the colours are all deeply analysed in order to increase the effectiveness of billboards. This is a trend that is likely to continue, as marketers seek out the most effective advertising mediums that people react to.

Fully automated control processes are the systems that operate the functional aspects of a technology process. This can be a production or engineering process, in these instances the control processes often have some kind of automation.
Using an engineering example, a lot of different tanks, valves, pumps, separators, boosters and some other devices, are connected usually by pipes or conveyor belts. Some flows of different substances pass through them while the properties of these substances undergo numerous changes. This is what is known as flow technology, and this flow technology is controlled using an automated control process. Its stressed that only big plants which have a lot of types of technological equipment have the most complicated control processes.
Flow technologies such as this are used extensively in oil and gas industries, chemistry, power engineering hydrometallurgy and in other types of heavy industries, manufactures and processing plants.
