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.
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. “ (Martin, 2013). We are getting used to some devices like phone, computer, and some displacement object such as cars, planes so on. Those elements affect our mental in the manner where we cannot do anything in their absences. For example, an engineer without a computer cannot do well same for the banks.
The robots will have a neuron-inspired computer that will work similar to the way that human neurons and synapses communicate(Al-Rodhan). The new computational basis will bring robots closer to the same level of intelligence as humans. Robots will soon learn to develop memory(Al-Rodhan). The smartness of the robots could be a devastation to humans. The robots can learn how to execute jobs and accomplish jobs better or faster.
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.
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.
These mechanical devices motion behaviour are sensed, planned, modelled, operated and controlled which is influenced by programming. Robots that achieve their specified task in an unstructured environment are deemed intelligent. The intelligent integration of components by system integration, achieving task by an operated mechanical device is to a large extent robotics. The boundaries of robotics is not clearly defined
Nevertheless, the report, published on PLoS ONE journal says these figures represent a relatively small proportion of the hundreds of thousands of robotic procedures performed every year. That notwithstanding, healthcare IT leaders must come up with new and effective safety measures for this technology to have a significant impact on the healthcare IT industry. Do the Benefits of Robotic Surgery Outweigh the Risks? Health practitioners agree that robot-assisted surgical procedures have many benefits for both the patient and the surgeon. These include: The surgeon enjoys a greater dexterity and motion range The surgeon sees live video of the operation field in the patient’s body.
1.0 Introduction A robot can be defined as an embodied “reprogrammable multifunctional manipulator” containing “sensors, effectors, memory, and some real-time computational apparatus” (Sheridan, 1992, pp. 3-4). Initially, robots were designed to perform tasks that are menial, repetitive, or dangerous for human beings. For instance, robots in factories assemble the same parts on a car repetitively for long periods of time and robots used by military to defuse bombs or monitor dangerous territory. However, with advancing technology together with researches, robots are now being developed to be introduced into household.
Abstract Humanoid Robotics is a new and challenging research field which received significant attention since 1970s and will continue to play a vital role in robotics research and in many applications of the 21 century. Regardless of the application area, one of the common problem tackled in humanoid robotics is the understanding of human like information processing and the underlying mechanism of the human brain in dealing with the real world. Considerable progress have been made in humanoid research resulting in a number of humanoid robots able to move and perform well designed tasks. Over the past decade in humanoid research, an emerging spectrum of science and engineering has emerged that leads to the development of highly advanced humanoid systems endowed with rich and complex sensorimotor capabilities. Of major importance for advances in the field is without doubt the availability of reproducible humanoid robots systems, which have been used in the last years as common hardware and software platform to support humanoid research.
Abstract: In recent years, robotics applications have drawn great attention from the field of manufacturing engineering. Robots are autonomous machines which are capable of movement in a given environment in which they can perform desired tasks in the unstructured environments without the human guidance. One of the generally used robots today is the mobile robot, which is usually used in the industries, military and security environments. My basic purpose in this review paper is to educate you about the different applications of robots commonly used in the manufacturing industries like pick and place robots, machine loading unloading, laser printing and dispensing. In addition to that, I will let you know about the methods and approach how these robots are functioned and the types of electronic
