1. What task does the robot perform? What human function or task does this robot simulate?
They are used to explore places humans cannot, such as space and underwater.
2. Where is the robot used? What is its work envelope (how many degrees of freedom or flexible joints does it have)?
Space robots have 3 flexible joints and 6 degrees of freedom.
Underwater robots have none.
4. How is the robot taught to perform its task?
The robot is programmed to perform its task.
3. Is the robotic end effector multi-functional? If so, what other tasks can it perform?
Multitask - pick up rock/soil samples and detect obstacles.
6. Name some advantages and disadvantages of using a robot to complete this task.
