THE HISTORY OF ROBOTICS
Transcript of THE HISTORY OF ROBOTICS
A.k.a. A litteral synth
The first computer controlled walking machine was created by Mcgee and
Frank at the University of South Carolina.
The first manually controlled walking truck was made by R. Mosher. It could
walk up to four miles an hour
In the Begining
In 1901, between the islands of Crete and Kythera, a diver found the remnants
of what might only be considered a mechanical computer. The device is a
complex mix of gears which most likely calculated the position of the sun,
moon or other celestial bodies.
278 – 212BC
Archimedes (287-212BC) did not invent robots, but he did invent many
mechanical systems that are used in robotics today, as well as advancing the
field of mathematics.
THE HISTORY OF ROBOTICS
Honda created the Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility (ASIMO). It is
intended to be a personal assistant. It recognizes its owner's face, voice, and
name. Can read email and is capable of streaming video from its camera to a
iRobot released the first generation of Roomba robotic vacuum cleaners.
As part of their mission to explore Mars, NASA launched twin robotic rovers
on June 10 and July 7, 2003 called Spirit and Sojourner.
A rubbery little "octobot" is the first robot made completely from soft parts, according to a new study. The tiny, squishy guy also doesn't need batteries or wires of any kind, and runs on a liquid fuel.
The octopus-like robot is made of silicone rubber, and measures about 2.5 inches (6.5 centimeters) wide and long. The researchers say soft robots can adapt more easily to some environments than rigid machines, and this research could lead to autonomous robots that can sense their surroundings and interact with people.
Joseph-Marie Jacquard invented a machine (essentially a loom) that could be
programmed to create designs that could be printed onto cloth or tissue.
The term "robot" was first used in a play called "R.U.R." or "Rossum's
Universal Robots" by the Czech writer Karel Capek. The plot was simple: man
creates a robot to replace him and then robot kills man!
Leonardo da Vinci designed what may be the first humanoid robot though it
cannot be confirmed if the design was actually ever produced. The robot was
designed to sit up, wave its arms, and move its head via a flexible neck while
opening and closing its jaw.
