    Background: THE FIFTH - AND BY FAR THE LARGEST EVER - INTERNATIONAL INSTRUMENTS ELECTRONICS AND AUTOMATION EXHIBITION IS OPEN ALL THIS WEEK AT OLYMPIA IN LONDON.

    THE HUGE DISPLAY EMPHASISES THE TREMENDOUS IMPACT OF ELECTRONICS INSTRUMENTATION AND CONTROL TECHNIQUES NOT ONLY ON INDUSTRY AND COMMERCE, BUT ALSO ON HUMAN AFFAIRS.

    THIS YEAR, OF THE 700 EXHIBITORS AT OLYMPIA, ONE FIFTH ARE FROM OVERSEAS. EXHIBITORS HAVE BROUGHT TO OLYMPIA EQUIPMENT RANGING FROM COSTLY CONTROL GEAR AND RESEARCH APPARATUS TO ALMOST INVISIBLE MINIATURE COMPONENTS WITH A TOTAL VALUE OF AT LEAST GBP20 MILLION.

    ORGANISERS POINT OUT THERE IS NO INDUSTRY AND ALMOST NO HUMAN ACTIVITY THAT IS NOT DIRECTLY INFLUENCED BY THE DEVELOPMENTS THAT VISITORS TO THE SHOW CAN SEE. AS MR L. YOXALL, CHAIRMAN OF THE I.E.A. EXHIBITION COMMITTEE SAID: "WE ARE NOT JUST THE SPEARHEAD OF AUTOMATION - WE ARE AUTOMATION".
