 Automating Manufacturing Processes

Linux Planet talks about automating manufacturing processes with ethernet-enabled Linux I/O modules.

"While other operating systems could have been used for the control computer, the team chose a Linux box running Red Hat 7.2, mainly due to cost and reliability factors. When you're delivering a $100,000 industrial system the components must be cost effective and rugged. Linux has proven to be easy to set up, stable and able to support remote administration. Since Linux is multi-user, technicians can log in to the box for reprogramming, maintanence or upgrading from just about any place that has an Ethernet connection."
