8. History In principle humanoid are robots
In this course, we will primarily study industrial manipulator type robot
9. Industrial Robots Robots are very powerful elements in today industry
They can perform many different tasks and operations precisely and do not require common safety and comfort elements humans need.
Robots have no overwhelmingly replaced workers. They are used where they are useful.
Robotics covers many different areas. They are used together with other devices, peripherals and other manufacturing machines. They are generally integrated to a system to perform a task or do an operation.
10. Lecture Outline Defining ôrobotö
What makes a robot
Sensors, sensor space
State, state space
Action/behavior, effectors, action space
The spectrum of control
11. Difference of Robot & Manipulator Manipulator (crane) is controlled by a human
Robot manipulator is controlled by a computer that runs a program

13. What is Robotics Art, Knowledge base, the know-how to design, apply and using robot in human endeavors
Consist of not only robots but also other devices and systems to perform the necessary tasks
14. Robots may be used in Manufacturing environments
Underwater and space explosion
Aiding the disabled
15. Robotics is an interdisciplinary subject of Mechanical engineering
Electrical and electronic engineering
16. Why ôrobotö? The term ôrobotö comes from Karel Capekĺs 1921 play RUR (Rossumĺs Universal Robots).
It is most likely a combination of ôrabotaö (obligatory work) and ôrobotnikö (serf).
The kind of robotics we will talk about will move far beyond such ôobligatory work.ö
17. What is a Robot? An intelligent robot is a machine able to extract information from its environment and use knowledge about its world to move safely in a meaningful and purposeful manner.
A robot is a system which exists in the physical world and autonomously senses its environment and acts in it to achieve some goals.
18. Other Definitions A robot is a re-programmable, multi-functional, manipulator designed to move material, parts, or specialized devices though variable programmed motions for the performance of a task (Robotics Industry Association)
Robotics is the intelligent connection of perception to action (M. Brady)
