The arm positions the end effector and sensors to do their pre-programmed business. Some arms resemble that of a human, and have shoulders, elbows, wrist, even fingers. This enables to position itself in its environment and do things in place of a human arm. A robot uses 7 degrees of freedom; each direction a joint can go gives an arm 1 degree. Artificial intelligence is a combination of sophisticated hardware and software with elaborate databases and knowledge based processing models to demonstrate characteristics of human decision making.
I. Experimental Question/ Purpose The situation being analyzed for this experiment is a cart sliding down a ramp and crashing into different mass blocks in different trials. The purpose is to see how changing the mass of an object affects how far it gets pushed by another object going at the same velocity every time.
Throughout history, the human has always envisioned living a lifestyle where chores were considered as a part of the past. With the development of humanoids and androids robots in the 1950’s, chores were really becoming part of the past. Therefore, because robots were able to adapt and meet the needs and wants of humans. As a result, we started to see an increase in both the use and production of robots in factories and households. In the article “The Robot Invasion” the author Charlie Gills, is really able to convey the relevance and effectiveness of a robot through the use of the tone, purpose, and credibility.
Now, Sharkey’s next premise states that robots face both the easy and hard proportionality problem. That is, robots are unable to decide how to minimize collateral damage, or whether it should apply lethal or kinetic force for a given context, respectively. The third premise states that the accountability for actions of a robot is ambiguous. For instance, the commander who gave the last order, or the programmer, or the manufacturer, or the policy makers all could be at fault of a robot induced mishap. Lastly, Sharkey criticizes “our natural tendency to attribute human or animal properties” to robots (791).
With the sources promising a different future in which robots will take many undesirable dangerous tasks from humans. The article “Robot Invasion’’ written by Charlie Gillis tells of the advancements of robotics. Gillis stressed that the experiments that the robotics companies are working to improve the robots to bring a future where humans and robots share the same work and home space. The article explain how the robots can take the tasks from humans that are dirty, dangerous, and difficult.
A robot is, “a machine resembling a human being or animal and able to replicate certain human or animal movements and functions automatically”. Normally, robots are supposed to look like the thing it is representing. We as humans has done very well with was design and application of robotic animals. However, the design and application of human-like robots has not gone very well. We need to pass the robots through the Uncanny Valley.
Something that is robotic can perform complex task, automatically or without direct control of a user. Robotics has many applications from entertainment to manufacturing. It is a progressing field and more uses are being discovered, improved, and integrated constantly. One such use is biotic replacement and enhancement. Uses such as improving human motion or even giving the ability of motion to those who have lost it.
In fact, our nature as human beings has fundamentally changing by the advancement of technology. We are likely to see that in the next half century or so, the relationship between human and machine would be redefined in a profound way. Think for a while, how we lead our everyday lives, what lead us to make our day. The simple answer is: we have been profoundly integrating technology into our daily lives. Our society has embraced technology by necessity.
1. Background 1.1 Introduction The progress of science and the advent of technology in the last few centuries have given birth to innovation and have enabled us to develop and use newer, sophisticated machinery in our everyday lives. One such ingenious example of this is a gripper. Grippers are devices used with systems involving robots and are used to pick up or place an object on automated systems such as an assembly line or a conveyor belt.
The manipulation of atoms, molecules and materials to form the structures normally from 1 to 100 nanometers. Nanotechnology consists of the technological developments based on the nanometer scale. Nanotechnology has many an enormous number of technical applications. It comprises of developments on the one billionth of a meter(1nm=10^-9m).
This science fair project is a mechanical catapult that will be electrically modified to pull back on its own. The goal of this project is to see how far an eraser cap will launch with two different forces that pull the catapult arm forward very fast. From this, we will see if either a bungee cord, or fifty to one-hundred rubber bands has more elasticity. One real-world situation we would want more elasticity for is holding things together, or hooking things together. In this project, recording of the control and data trials will be included into a bar graph, as an average.
The field of engineering is very large; the field consists of everything from Robotics to Nanotech (Bella 64). Although it may sound like a great amount of work, it is rewarding in the end. An engineer stays with the project from planning to final testing. For instance, to create a robot, a robotics engineer must fuse the newest technology and combine it with imagination, and designing skills. While creating a robot an engineer uses computer design to help see their vision come to life.
