  1. Robotics

  2. Robotics is the branch of technology • Deals with the design, construction, operation • Majority of robots use electric motors • Robot, a mechanical or virtual agent • Combination of electronics, mechanics and software • Many benefits such as creativity, design ability Robotics

  3. 1927 the Maschinenmensch ("machine-human") gynoid humanoid robot • 1942 science fiction writer Isaac Asimov formulated his Three Laws of Robotics. • 1948 Norbert Wiener formulated the principles of cybernetics • c. 420 B.C.E A wooden, steam propelled bird, which was able to fly • 1495 Designs for a humanoid robot “Mechanical knight” • 1961 First installed industrial robot. History of Robotics

  4. Power source mostly (lead-acid) batteries are used • Electric motors brushed and brushless DC motors • Air muscles Pneumatic artificial muscles • Sensing allow robots to receive information • Vision science technology of machines that see • Manipulation objects; pick up, modify, destroy Some Components Robots

  5. Industrial robots - used in an industrial manufacturing environment • Domestic or household robots - used at home. • Medical robots - used in medicine and medical institutions • Service robots - that don't fall into other types by usage • Hobby and competition robots – created, Line followers, sumo-bots, robots • Space & Military robots - used in space and used in military Types of robots by application

  6. Built by NASA and General Motors, the Robonaut2 (R2) Top 10 robots of 2012 The U.S. military's drones – or Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) Boston Dynamics' Cheetah robot breaks speed record for legged robots Boston Dynamics' LS3 quadruped plays follow the leader

  7. Japan gets serious about nuclear clean-up robots Rethink Robotics unveils inexpensive and user-friendly Baxter robot Top 10 robots of 2012 DARPA Robotics Challenge contenders revealed RoboCup'sTeenSize League gets two open-source competitors

  8. Top 10 robots of 2012 Toyota reveals Human Support Robot Miniature robot avatar goes with you everywhere

  9. Advantages : • Going to far away planets • Giving us information that humans can't get • They can entertain us and help us in certain tasks • Disadvantages : • It costs money to make or buy a robot • It needs maintenance to keep it running • It needs a supply of power • People can lose jobs in factories Advantages and Disadvantages of Robots
