Jidoka

a Japanese term used to describe the stopping of a process if an error is detected either in the process or in the product. Based in part on team working and empowerment, the application of the Jidoka allows an employee to stop a process, so that the error can be analysed and corrected so that it does not occur again. The process will then be restarted. See QUALITY, LEAN MANUFACTURING, JUST-IN-TIME (JIT) SYSTEM.

Autonomation is a term that groups together procedures for stopping the production line automatically in the event of a problem, methods for eliminating causes of error and problem analysis.
Autonomation is the second pillar of the Toyota Production System and results from Sakichi Toyoda's earlier invention of the auto-activated weaving machine.
Typically, autonomation allows one employee to perform two or more tasks simultaneously, sometimes using more than one machine.
The autonomation concept suggests that we can upgrade the machine's capabilities by giving it human-like intelligence features to detect abnormal conditions and stop its operation automatically when such abnormal conditions arise.

Through autonomation (stop the line)[4], retroaction and error autocorrection are immediate.
Soon you will probably see autonomous driving in traffic jams and inner city driving, but to do this 100% autonomation where there's nobody in the car and you can tell it 'go get my son from football practice' or you go to sleep in the back seat - we still see that as very far out.
