timelines of technology
Who were the first “internet” users? The University of California at Los Angeles, the Stanford Research Institute, the University of California at Santa Barbara, and the University of Utah were connected on the ARPANET, the technical foundation for the internet, in 1969.
From the first documented semiconductor effect in 1833 to the transition from transistors to integrated circuits in the 1960s and 70s, explore milestones in the development of the extraordinary silicon chips that power the information age.

Sun starts to produce energy.
According to the above data, over 70% have already integrated automation technology, or are planning to within the next five years. On the flip side, over a quarter of warehouse managers are not currently looking to integrate any new automation tech into their operations at all.
As seen above, warehouse automation has already received more investment (55%) than any other supply chain technology on the list, as companies aim to cut delivery times and improve overall margins.
What is the evidence for the time new technological innovations take to reach commercial maturity?
The role and importance of technological innovation in reducing greenhouse gas emissions is well established in national and international policies. In addition, a substantial number of analyses emphasise the importance of government policies in promoting innovation directly – in part through support for research and development, but also through the creation of markets for emerging technologies. The creation of markets often relies upon targeted, technologically specific policies, for example feed in tariffs for renewable energy, where tariff rates are differentiated by technology. This gives rise to debate about the affordability of large scale deployment subsidies and the role of governments in deciding which technologies to support. A related argument is associated with how governments should determine the balance between support for deployment and incremental improvement in existing technologies and support for ‘blue skies’ R&D which seeks to develop new technologies.
