Robot Toys:
By:Marcela Orozco-Villanueva
Darlene Sarte

What task does the robot perform?
What human function or task does this robot simulate?
The performance of this robotic dog is to act as a real dog. The task that this toy simulates is to listen to your commands with help and imitate actions like a real dog.
Where is the robot used? What is its work envelope?
The robot Zoomer is used at home for kids play. He gets fully charged in an hour, and "falls asleep" when out of power. It can be charged by a USB chord connected to your computer or charge from a plug from a wall.
Is the robotic
end effector
multi-functional? If so, what other tasks can it perform?
No, Zoomer is not multi-functional . It can't perform any other task except to only be your dog.
How is the robot taught to perform its task?
Spend enough time "training" Zoomer and you may finally get him out of training mode so he doesn't forget commands. Must be programmed by humans.

What sensors does the robot have and how does the robot use these sensors?
It has motorized joints and sensors in its chest to detect motion, objects, and touch. It responds to voice commands in three different languages: Spanish, English, French.
Advantages & Disadvantages
-Won't listen without help
-Half hour of battery life
-Is Loud!
-Good build:
-If ear falls off then you can put it back
Surprisingly smart and agility
The Impact on Audience
It has impacted society in a positive way by giving children responsibility to think before adopting an animal.

What type of jobs/careers can this robot create to provide employment for people?
Predict and explain how this robot may be altered to perform more or different tasks in the future.
The employment that Zoomer can create is the job of building motion sensors, manufacturing rubber, and programming micro chips for memory.
We predict that Zoomer can be given more sensors to listen to commands well and notice sharp edges to not fall off.
