Robots have solved many problems before, and they can solve many more. They have the potential to solve and help solve many problems on Earth. Robots also have the ability to solve and contribute to solving many problems in space. When programmed correctly and given proper equipment robots can do many useful and helpful things. Robots have many different subsystems that are called different names and do different things.
Robot is a mechanical devise designed to perform the work generally done by a human being (The Columbia Encyclopedia 2013). According to Giancarlo (2012, 1) the origin of the word “robot” dates back from 1920, when the Czech writer Karel Kapec published his science fiction play R.U.R. (Rossum’s Universal Robots) dealing with artificial men built for performing work in place of human beings. Not so long ago, in the last century, robots were just imagination and nothing else. Nowadays robots are becoming part of peoples’ lives.
Robots have evolved over centuries. Beginning with robots that counted time to robots that build other robots, robots have developed into the defining creation of the 21st century. Robots help us communicate, give us access to a wealth of information, and entertain us. They are the most widely used things in today’s modern culture and you cannot live for one day without using them. Phones, computers, washing machines, and TVs are all forms of robots that we use in our everyday lives.
It also provides some of the most useful technologies to mankind, more especially because robots can be programmed to work. To the perspective of normal people, the existence of robots in the industrial field implies that the work will be done faster and more precisely. Although industrial robots aim for efficiency with the purpose of helping mankind, there are other implications
Many jobs have become easier by being replaced by robots. Robot are not just the idea of talking mechanical parts as we see in futuristic movies. There are a variety of different types of robotic machines, great majority of them appear in factories and in science technology work fields. Robots in factories help replace a dangerous parts of a job. However, there have been different perspective with robots replacing jobs.
The Robot Age Making Things Work Smarter & Better by John Paraiso for REACH Past the first decade and a half of the 21st century, robots are everywhere. Used in rescue operations, in space exploration, and you might not believe that miniature robots are now available to clean your houses, or humanoid robots doing a nanny’s job in day care hospitals in Japan. You may think that robots are just a modern contrivance of the late half of the 20th century, a recent technology, but you will be surprised to know that the idea and the creation of robots began as early as 350 BCE, in Ancient Greece according to lore. Slave to the Grind Coined by the artist Josef Čapek, the brother of famed Czechoslovakian author Karel Čapek. The word ‘roboti’
In many factories, workers are let to accomplish just one type of activities all the day and also during all the work days because the robots are doing the rest job. “Then all our operator would have to do is take the finished bag and pack them out.”(Will , 2012). This condition of work can make people behavior as a robot. Also, using robot in manufacturing can reduce the capacity of human to think, create, in a word reduce the robot user skill of creativity; the reason is that he will be doing just one activity the thinking part is let to the machine, he will not use his mind as mentioned here” And another worry is that we are increasingly dependent on computer networks, and that these could behave like a single ‘brain’ with a mind of its own, and with goals that may be contrary to human welfare. I think we should ensure that robots remain as no more than ‘idiot savants’ – lacking the capacity to outwit us, even though they may greatly surpass us in the ability to calculate and process information.
This normally takes time and financial output. 1.5.4 Safety Robots may protect workers from some hazards, but in the meantime, their very presence can create other safety problems. These new dangers must be taken into consideration. 1.6 Types of Robot 1.6.1 Redundant Robots Six degrees of freedom are, in principle, enough to manipulate objects in space with three possible independent translations and three independent rotations. But, with a given architecture of a robot arm and a given working environment, restrictions of workspace, dexterity and obstacles call for additional degree(s) of free- dom.
Humans are exceptionally smart and lazy beings. With that said, we often use our intelligence to decrease our workload and make our lives easier. The majority of people believe that automation refers to giant dumb robots that are very expensive, specialized, and will often require a human in control of it. However, as the age of technology advances, these automations advance as well. In fact, we will soon transition into the age of automations which will be putting a large portion of the economy at risk due to robots replacing humans in the workplace.
Technology has been advancing over a number of years to where it is now. New technologies are being created on a daily bases to improve quality of life and our experiences. Today I will be looking at; Robotics and the advantages and disadvantages that it imposes. Roboticists are persons who develop a man-made mechanical device. These mechanical devices motion behaviour are sensed, planned, modelled, operated and controlled which is influenced by programming.
