UTC prepares for the future of automation technology

Formerly known as the Consumer Automation Section, the new Automation Technology Section will serve as a liaison with other technical organizations involved in automation for utilities, pipelines, and other critical infrastructure companies; investigate emerging technologies like automatic meter reading, computer-aided dispatch, wireless automation systems, and smart-house technologies; and serve as a forum for UTC members to share ideas and build knowledge through white papers and educational workshops.
