Robotics and Automation
Robotics is a branch of engineering that involves the conception, design, manufacture, and operation of robots
The goal of robotics is to design intelligent machines that can help and assist humans in their day-to-day lives and keep everyone safe. Robotics draws on the achievement of information engineering, computer engineering, mechanical engineering, electronic engineering and others.
Robotics develops machines that can substitute for humans and replicate human actions. Robots can be used in many situations and for many purposes, but today many are used in dangerous environments (including inspection of radioactive materials, bomb detection and deactivation), manufacturing processes, or where humans cannot survive (e.g. in space, underwater, in high heat, and clean up and containment of hazardous materials and radiation). Robots can take on any form but some are made to resemble humans in appearance. This is said to help in the acceptance of a robot in certain replicative behaviors usually performed by people. Such robots attempt to replicate walking, lifting, speech, cognition, or any other human activity. Many of today's robots are inspired by nature, contributing to the field of bio-inspired robotics.
As more and more robots are designed for specific tasks method of classification becomes more relevant. For example, many robots are designed for assembly work, which may not be readily adaptable for other applications. They are termed as "assembly robots". For seam welding, some suppliers provide complete welding systems with the robot i.e. the welding equipment along with other material handling facilities like turntables, etc. as an integrated unit. Such an integrated robotic system is called a "welding robot" even though its discrete manipulator unit could be adapted to a variety of tasks.
Current and potential applications include:
• Military robots
• Industrial robots
• Cobots - Construction robots
• Agricultural robots
• Medical robots
• Kitchen automation
• Robot combat for sport – hobby or sport event where two or more robots fight in an arena to disable each other
• Cleanup of contaminated areas, such as toxic waste or nuclear facilities
• Domestic robots
• Swarm robotics
• Autonomous drones
• Sports field line marking
Robotics is an essential component in many modern manufacturing environments. As factories increase their use of robots, the number of robotics–related jobs grow and have been observed to be steadily rising.The employment of robots in industries has increased productivity and efficiency savings and is typically seen as a long term investment for benefactors.
