Transcript of Robot Cars

How is the robot car taught to perform its task?
What task does the
robot car perform? What human function or task does this robot simulate?

What type of jobs/careers can this robot create to provide employment for people?
Some of the advantages to using robot cars or google cars is that there can now be less deaths caused by human accidents. Another advantage is that blind people can use this car as transportation to take them where they need to go.

Some disadvantages are that the cars a very expensive to produce and use.
Describe the impact that this robot has had or could have on its intended audience.
Name some advantages and disadvantages of using a robot to complete this task.
What sensors does the robot have and how does the robot use these sensors
Is the robotic end effector multi-functional? If so, what other tasks can it perform?
Where is the robot car used? What is its work envelope (how many degrees of freedom or flexible joints does it have
Robot cars or google cars are vehicles that drive themselves using artificial-intelligence software. This helps the car be aware of its surroundings using sensors, then mimic or simulate a human drivers decision.
These robot cars are currently used in four states in the U.S. including Nevada, Florida, Michigan, and California. European cities in countries like Belgium, Italy, and France are planning to use these robot cars soon.

This car has 360 degrees of freedom like a normal car.

The robot car or google car uses laser radar systems to generate a detailed 3-D map of its surroundings/environment.
Predict and explain how this robot may be altered to perform more or different tasks in the future?
Yes, it can move backwards, forwards and side to side
Laser technology on top of the vehicle act as sensors to send a map of the environment and surroundings to the programmed computer.
This robot car would have a positive impact to its audience because there would be less accidents and less deaths because of human mistakes.
Some jobs or careers that robot cars will produce are robotics engineering, in which the engineers can work on innovating the car to make it even better. Also, the robot car or google car can create more jobs for mechanics because if there were problems with the car mechanics can fix it.
In the future, the google car/robot car could be able to function with no one in the car and could be safe to drive with pedestrians and other cars.
