Adnan Ilyas (Uncertain) says
The probability of robots taking over the valve repair/maintenance is still very irrelevant as even in the 2020 we hardly have the full range of precise equipment to carry out the job by machines which are operated by human. But never the less who knows maybe in 2020 things can change.
