Transcript of Robotics

By Theron Davis Robotics The science or study of technology associated with design, construction, and operation of mechanical devices that complete often difficult tasks for humans. The term robot comes from the Czech word robota, generally translated as "forced labor." Robotics Dr. Devol and Engelberger were credited for creating the first functioning robot and robot company. Although the idea of an artificial life form had been around for hundreds of years, Dr. Devol and Engelberger executed it. Creating the World's first Robot in the 1960's. The robot was used for the assembly line at General Motors in 1961. Dr. George Devol &
Joseph Engelberger Robotics can be used in many ways, today robotics are used for assembly lines, cleaning homes, assisting the elderly, providing precise movements during special surgeries, children's toys, providing support to soldiers, and much more. How can robotics be used? Robots are important because robots perform tasks that would be dangerous and even sometimes impossible for humans to do. Robots provide speed, efficiency, low maintenance, accuracy, and assistance in many tasks. Some people depend on robotic technology to live, because they, themselves cannot perform certain tasks. How are Robotics necessary today? ZEUS- Robotic Surgery Assistant:
Robotic surgery is a technique in which a surgeon performs surgery using a computer that remotely controls very small instruments attached to a robot. It is then used for Endoscopic surgery, which is surgery that uses a small camera attached at the end of a tube, placed inside the body. Procedures include transplants, valve replacement, cancer removal of tissue, hysterectomy,and much more.

The Robotic Arm:
Robotic Arms are generally used in Assembly lines for lifting heavy objects, and making precise movements. During the 1960's and up until about 15 years ago, 9 out of 10 robots were used for car manufactures. Today Car assembly is done by robots to
reduce the dangers of certain power tools. Specific Robots Used Joesph Engelberger TALON ZEUS ROBOTIC ARM RIBA II- Robot Nurse Surgical Assistance Car Manufacturing Military Asimo- Highly Technical Robot, Humanoid, Capable of most human movements. SPIRIT- Mars Rover:
is a robotic rover on Mars, active from 2004 to 2010. It was one of two rovers of NASA's ongoing Mars Exploration Rover Mission.
