Transcript of All About Assistive Robots!

Name some advantages and disadvantages of using a robot to complete this task.
Advantages! :)
Free Work
Helps around the house
another helping hand
many different abilities
creates jobs
Disadvantages! :(
on the other hand it could take over some jobs because they would do a better job not needing paid
expensive electricity bill

All About Assistive Robots!
Where is the robot used? What is its work envelope?
Assistive robots can be used in homes, hospitals, and assisted living units.

Assistive robots are very flexible, which means there are usually many flexible joints (around 100). For instance there can be fingers on them, which would be 5 on each hand. They can also bend over which would be flexible joints in the abdomen. There are many other flexible joints within this robot. However, there are many different kinds of assistive robots who barely have any flexible joints within them.

Is the robot end multi-functional? If so, what other tasks can it perform?

Some of the things these robots do are cooking, talking, walking, replacing body parts, and cleaning. Basically simple tasks that some people can not do.
How is the robot taught to perform its task?
There are instructions put together by programming engineers. Some of these robots are controlled by voice, joy stick, or laser to perform some tasks.
What sensors does the robot have and how does the robot use these sensors?
The two main sensors for this robot are Infared and PhotoCell.

These sensors work for as eyes. To see things and around things. They also use them to see how far they need to go.
What task does the robot perform? What human function or task does this robot simulate?
An assistive robot performs many different tasks. They help people do things that they cannot fully accomplish. These types of robots help people everyday.

These robots can act as a substitute to an arm or a leg; these robots act to assist unable people.
This robot has had a huge impact on physically disabled people who cannot complete simple tasks. Without an assistive robot, they would not be able to do everyday tasks. However, robots like this could potentially take over peoples jobs, and on the same time create jobs.
Describe the impact this robot has had or could have on its intended audience.
What type of jobs/careers can this robot create to provide employment for people?
An assistive robot creates many jobs. There needs to be jobs to fix, make, and improve the robot. The jobs that an assistive robot would create would be mechanical engineers, factory workers, and scientists.

There are more!
Predict and explain how this robot may be altered to perform more or different tasks in the future.
They could help people with bigger jobs, or they may become smaller so it could still performs the same tasks (or more) but you wouldn't have to have this huge robot in your house. For robots that hook up to a body part, they could become more lifelike and flexible.
