A Robotic Arm/Hand is used in factory's that design vehicles, in scientists' labs,and can be used as a replacement for a lost arm or hand. Also, much like a human arm, the robotic arm has flexibility through three joints: the rover's shoulder, elbow, and wrist.
The arm or hand can do many things, and IS multi-functional. It has many other purposes, aside from making cars. It can help with scentific research, holding, for example, a rock at a certain angle, so that the scientist
looking at it, doesn't have to use both hands.
The arm uses motion sensors to view what is in front of it and where it is.
A computer controls the arm and tells it what to do, when to do it.
Advantages:
1. You don't have to do all the work.
2. you can experiment with two things at the same time, therefor killing two birds with one stone.
3. If you're allergic to something you could be working with, you don't have to touch it.

Disadvantages:
1. The robot could lose track of what it's doing at the wrong time and burn someone's face off.
2. The robot could stop mid-task while you thought it had everything under control and went home, and the the next day you'll lose your job because of a robot.
3. The robot could do the wrong thing because of a simple error and cause something bad to happen.

8. What type of jobs/careers can this robot create to provide employment for people?
We predict that in the future the robotic arm will help people that need
an arm. It doesn't just help people
that need a arm, but it can also help people that can't move.
The Robotic Hand or Arm, can be designed to perform any desired task such as welding, gripping, spinning etc., depending on what you want it to do. For example, robot arms in automotive assembly lines perform a variety of tasks such as welding and parts rotation and placement during assembly. In some circumstances, close emulation of the human hand is desired, as in robots designed to conduct bomb disarmament and disposal.
1. What task does the robot perform? What human function or task does this robot simulate?
The computer controls the robot by rotating individual step motors connected to each joint. Unlike ordinary motors, step motors move in exact increments. This allows the computer to move the arm very precisely, repeating exactly the same movement over and over again. The robot uses motion sensors to make sure it moves just the right amount.
Honestly, it could go both ways.
The audience could be fascinated and absolutely love the idea, or it could be bored or afraid of it and wave off the idea. It depends on the audience.
4. How is the robot taught to perform its task?
7. Describe the impact that this robot has had or could have on its intended audience.
9. Predict and explain how this robot may be altered to perform more or different tasks in the future.
5. What sensors does the robot have and how does the robot use these sensors?
6. Name some advantages and disadvantages of using a robot to complete this task.
2. Where is the robot used? What is its work envelope (how many degrees of freedom or flexible joints does it have)?
3. Is the robotic end effector multi-functional? If so, what other tasks can it perform?
From what we've discovered, it doesn't really CREATE jobs, as much as take them. You can program it, design it, etc., but robots are mainly used to do things so that people don't have to.
You aren't DOING the job anymore,the robot is.
