HMI systems are a combination of software and hardware that provide an interface between automated systems and humans by using HMI software or HMI panels. It helps operators interact with automated systems in vehicles and understand the plant floor automation process. HMI systems are widely adopted for plant automation purposes. They help feed in the inputs and monitor, control, and check the parameters that are connected to control systems in a plant.
Technavio's analysts forecast the global HMI market to grow at a CAGR of 7.73% over the period 2015-2019.
