Transcript of Robotics

ROBOTICS What is it? Intro Robotics is technology that makes the design, construction, and application of robots. A robot is 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. Definition ro·bot·ics
Robotics: technology dealing with the design, construction, and operation of robots in automation Where"robots"got there name The word "robot" was introduced by a writer named Karel Čapek in a play he made called R.U.R. (Rossum's Universal Robots) in the 1920's. The play is about artificial people being made called robots and the issue is whether the robots are being exploited and the consequences of their treatment. Karel Čapek did no come up with the word himself, he named his brother, Josef Čapek the actual originator. The Three Laws of Robotics The three laws of robotics was made by the science fiction writer, Isaac Asimov which are in his books often. These have since been used by many others to define laws used in fact and fiction. Introduced in his 1942 short story "Runaround" the Laws state the following: 1. A robot may not harm a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
2.A robot must obey a human being, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law.
3.A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law. Where are they Roughly half of all the robots in the world are in Asia, 32% in Europe, and 16% in North America, 1% in Australia and 1% in Africa. 40% of all the robots in the world are in Japan, making Japan the country with the highest number of robots. Types of Robots Mobile Robot: Mobile robots have the capability to move around in their environment and are not fixed to one physical location. Industrial Robot: An industrial robot is used in factories for things like picking and placing, welding, and more. Service Robot: Service robots assist human beings, typically by performing a job that is dirty, dull, distant, dangerous or repetitive, including household chores. Modular Robot: A modular robot are designed to increase the utilization of the robots by modularizing the robots. Collabrative Robot: a robot that can safely and effectively interact with human workers in performance of simple industrial tasks. A scene from Josef Čapek's play, R.U.R Robots So in conclusion, Robots have come a long way from the good and the bad but it seems like there's no end in sight. Robots In Movies The actual robots I have shown you are not the same as the robots in the movies but they are still are really interesting but fictitouts You may know these two from the Star Wars series C-3PO R2-D2 This robot has appeared in several Godzilla movies MechaGodzilla He may not look like a robot but Arnold Schwarzenegger brings it in
The Terminator It's a fight for Earth as the decepticons and the autobots face off in Transformers The Fears In Japan and some other Asian societies the thought of robots have been positive mainly because of the show "Astro Boy". They believe that it would be good to have a pro-robotic society. Western Societies however fear the creation of robots through what they have seen in the media today because some people believe that the robots could take over. anthropomorphic robot " Sonny" in I, Robot Weird Things Robots Do Some people want to use their talents of technology by making weird robots that do stuff like: act like an elephant Play Ping Pong
