  1. Evolution of Automated Systems/RoboticsOverview, Types, and Applications TED 384 Computer Applications in Industry (Robotics Education) Created by Dr. T.E. Varnado

  2. Overview • Introductions • Syllabus • Robot Media • http://www.youtube.com/my_playlists(2) www.mypage.bluewin.ch Created by Dr. T.E. Varnado

  3. Overview • What is a robot? • a machine that looks like a human being and performs various complex acts (as walking or talking) of a human being; a similar but fictional machine whose lack of capacity for human emotions is often emphasized; an efficient insensitive person who functions automatically • a device that automatically performs complicated often repetitive tasks • a mechanism guided by automatic controlswww.webster.com www.images.movie-gazette.com Created by Dr. T.E. Varnado

  4. Overview • What is a robot? • or automaton: mechanical device designed to perform the work generally done by a human being. The Britannica Concise • an electro-mechanical or bio-mechanical device or group of devices that can perform autonomous or preprogrammed tasks. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robot • computer-controlled machine that is programmed to move, manipulate objects, and accomplish work while interacting with its environment http://encarta.msn.com/text_761564255__1/Robot.html www.english.ucsb.edu Created by Dr. T.E. Varnado

  5. Overview • What is a robot? • “A robot is a machine that follows a set of instructions and senses its environment and responds to that stimulus. Not only does a robot not have to look like a human, it should not even work like a human: People, though incredibly flexible and intuitive, do not make the best workers for dull, repetitive, and/or hazardous tasks.” Tech Directions, Feb. 1999, by Steve Waddell, p. 34 • “A robot is a machine body, controlled by a computer brain, which operates by itself and can be taught to do different kinds of work.” A Look Inside Robots, Art Kleiner, 1981, Raintree Publishers, Inc., p. 6 www.ri.cmu.edu/ Created by Dr. T.E. Varnado

  6. Overview • What is a robot? • A robot is a “reprogrammable, multifunctional machine designed to manipulate materials, parts, tools or specialized devices, through variable programmed motions for the performance of a variety of tasks.”Robotic Industries Association www.roboticsonline.com • 362 Dancing Robots www.kuka.com Created by Dr. T.E. Varnado
