FUT R E tECHNOLOGY Obots Robots as Soldiers Different uses SWORDS, short for Special Weapons Observation Reconnaissance Detection Systems, will be the first armed robotic vehicles to see combat Combat System vehicles are currently under development by big defense contractors such as Lockheed Martin and General Dynamics Corp. These companies are working on the technology to create robotic weapons. Robots in Space An advantage of sending robots into space instead of humans means that the risk of a human life is no longer necassary. Future space robots will be specifically designed to handle extreme areas in space, for example the blistering heat close to the sun and freezing temperatures in the shadows of space. Medical Robots Robots taking over in operating rooms
diminshes the time taken to complete opereation procedures and would mean an improvement in
consistency and reliablity. A robot like this is already being
used in the medical filed. It is called
the Da Vinci Surgical System and is a big

decreased blood loss
less pain
quicker healing time Robots as Companions Disadvantages:
If a malfunction happens in the process of an operation it could result in serious injuries to the patient.
Leaves people without jobs. In a few years Robots will be developed enough to be able to interact with humans. In order for this to be achieved however, extensive research has to be put into aritficial intelligence and robotics. Robots will also be used
as house cleaners and servents
instead of maids Early Forms There are already early forms
of robots and they come in different forms. one example is the childrens toy PLEO. Features Pleo is fully autonomous.
