1.1 Introduction to Robotics Robotics is a branch of engineering that involves the conception, design, manufacture, and operation of robot s. This field overlaps with electronics, computer science, artificial intelligence, mechatronics, nanotechnology, and bioengineering. Science-fiction author Isaac Asimov is often given credit for being the first person to use the term robotics in a short story composed in the 1940s. In the story, Asimov suggested three principles to guide the behavior of robots and smart machines. Asimov 's Three Laws of Robotics, as they are called, have survived to the present: 1. Robots must never harm human beings. 2. Robots must follow instructions from humans without violating rule 1. 3. Robots must protect themselves…show more content…
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. In such cases, as a human being uses additional freedoms of the body to supplement the capabilities of the arm for enhancing the reach, manipulate objects comfortably and reach below the table or around the corner objects, additional degrees of freedom can be provided in the robot arm with extra joints and links. Such robots are called redundant robots (because they use more inputs than necessary) and are used for the purposes of workspace enhancement and avoidance of singularities and obstacles. With a redundant robot, a particular point can be reached in infinite number of ways — to choose one of those infinite ways is the problem of redundancy resolution, which is solved by optimizing the…show more content…
At the end, output of microcontroller is given to Motor driver IC which will fulfill the current and voltage requirements for driving the geared DC motors and servo motors. Further it can also change the direction and angle of its motor pump through servo motors and it will also have a wireless camera through which All the process can be monitored on the system/laptop through wireless camera which is placed at the robot and living person (moving object) can be detected and monitored on the system/laptop. So, that if a person is alive in the effective area rescue team can be sent there. It can be done by using embedded technology microcontroller and wireless communication is done by Dual Tone Multiple Frequency (DTMF) technology. So, basically it is rescue robot which can extinguish fire manually operated through cell phone (DTMF) and display signal for rescue operation through image
