Transcript of Robotics

By: Paulina Bento Robotics for the Future A robot can be defined as:

A mechanical device that sometimes resembles a human and is capable of performing a variety of often complex human tasks on command or by being programmed in advance.


A machine or device that operates automatically or by remote control. What is a robot? The branch of technology that deals with the design, construction, operation and application of robots and computer systems for their control, sensory feedback, and information processing. if this is a robot, then robotics must be Robotics: ... But where and how did it all begin? Timeline of robot development 1st century AD and earlier Descriptions found of over a hundred machines including a fire engine, wind organ, and steam- powered aeliopile.
The aeliopile was Invented by Ctesibius, Philo, Heron, and others. Aeliopile 1495 Early 1870's 1961 First designs for a humanoid robot called "the mechanical knight."
Designed by Leonardo da Vinci Remote controlled torpedos are invented John Ericsson, John Louis Lay, and Victor von Scheliha First installed industrial robot called the Unimate 2010 and beyond robotic leg being tested in japanese hospital to help stroke patients walk again. What are the different types of robots? Different Types of Robots & Their Uses Mobile Robots Autonomous Robots Rolling Robots Walking Robots Stationary robots robots that are able to move
usually perform tasks such as searching areas
are helpful in completing tasks in places where people cant reach or are too dangerous
The mars rover is used to explore the surface of mars have wheels to move around
can quickly and easily move around
only useful in flat areas have legs to walk on
excels on rocky and and uneven terrain
modeled after insects or craw fish
walking robots have at least 4 legs for balance reasons robots that perform repeating tasks without moving
usually found working in industry settings
used for dull or continuously repeating tasks self supporting/ self contained robots
rely on their own "brains"
runs a program that gives it the opportunity to decide on the appropriate action
can learn to walk or avoid obstacles in their way So i know what robots are, the study of robotics, and the different types of robots but how are robots applied in the world?
welding: able to repeatedly and uniformly weld at a fast pace

spray painting: Consistency and repeatability of a robots motion provides for near perfect quality and no wasted paint

assembly operations: able to complete repetitive and tedious tasks

material handling: able to handle materials in processes that take place in a clean room as they do not introduce dirt, dust, or oil into an area

packaging: able to move quickly and efficiently in the packaging of various products

Benefits of Robotics and Robots can work in environments deemed unsafe or physically difficult for humans
can clean up radioactive areas, extinguish fires, disarm bombs, and load explosives and toxic chemicals
can work in the dark processing light-sensitive films, conduct underwater exploration, and work in mines
robots are used in the military to sense targets and as surveillance devices
in the printing industry robots sort, tie bundles of printed materials, and apply book covers
in laboratories, small desktop robots prepare samples and mix compounds
perform applications with consistency and precision
produce high quality products
save companies money
avoid waste and fewer mistakes can be expected
efficient in small spaces
increase profits by decreasing production time
Robots are used for the following industrial purposes mechanical engineering ( build the hardware and structure)
electrical engineering ( spec the motors and power supply)
computer engineering (design the firmware silicon)
industrial designers (decorate the outside and make sure the inside fits well together)
and many more professions!
Getting into the Field of Robotics There are many different people involved in the building of robots. To get in the field of robotics one can study; THE FUTURE OF ROBOTICS Robotics is new technology that has still yet to be broken out. It is predicted that robots wont become popular until the 2020's. Being a robot programmer in the next 10 years will be as much in demand as app programers are today.
