    Two years ago, the Chrysler corporation completely gutted its Windsor, Ontario, car assembly plant and within six weeks had installed an entirely new factory inside the building. It was a marvel of engineering. When it came time to go to work, a whole new work force marched onto the assembly line. There on opening day was a crew of 150 industrial robots. Industrial robots don't look anything like the androids from sci-fi books and movies. They don't act like the evil Daleks or a fusspot C-3P0. If anything, the industrial robots toiling on the Chrysler line resemble elegant swan

    1. PREAMBLE As the famous Greek Philosopher, Plato, rightly quoted, “A need or problem encourages creative efforts to meet the need or solve the problem”, NECESSITY is the MOTHER of INVENTION. Nothing comes into existence without a purpose in natural systems. This is also true for Robots and its associated technology known as Robotics. Any human-like activity carried out by any man-made device has always been a source of amazement and excitement. As an example, if an object is simply ‘picked’ from one location, ‘moved’ to another location and ‘placed’ there in a smooth fashion

    How ICT Is Used In The Manufacturing Industry Especially By Robotics

    1077 words - 5 pages

    HOW ICT IS USED IN THE MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY ESPECIALLY BY ROBOTICS. ROBOTICS Computers can be used to control machines. In small operations, an electric motor called a stepper motor can be found. This can be precisely controlled as the motor rotates through an exact angle each time it is sent a pulse. It can be run continuously at varying speeds and movement in any is possible. The BBC buggy and the turtle crawler are examples of these simple movement microcomputers controlled systems. Hydraulic or pneumatic systems are usually found in larger applications because they are more pow

    Isaac Asimov once stated, “Part of the inhumanity of the computer is that once completely programmed and working smoothly, it is completely honest,” (Asimov Quotes 1). Isaac Asimov is considered one of the Big Three of the Science Fiction genre. He has over 500 published works and half of which are classified as Science Fiction. He exercised the belief that technology is a good thing as long as society is ready to handle it. A critic claims that “Asimov’s stories have a bold and important role in the history and future of science fiction,” (Isaac Asimov 35-38). Many of Asimov’s works deal

    Virtual Reality has many advantages. It allows disabled people to do those actions that they normally cannot do. Using VR, people in wheelchairs, can have liberty of movement which they do not have in normal life. At present, very few people can afford to buy a VR system. But as the technology is growing day by day, lightweight helmets and more powerful computers will take VR into ordinary homes. Using virtual reality, doctors have already been 'inside' a body. At the University of North Carolina, USA, virtual reality allowed doctors to enter a cancer patient's chest to make sure that ra

    Selective Year 10 English Essay: “Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely” By Pamela Wu 10E “Power corrupts; absolute power corrupts absolutely” is a quote which can reflect the main ideas featured in the Shakespearean play, Othello and the film, I-Robot. I define power that corrupts as being that one person/person’s authority over someone using force, either being physical, mental, political or social which can inflict their ideas upon them and potentially control them. Power is explored through Othello and I-Robot with characters using and abusing their power in order for t

    ROBOT | | A robot is a virtual or mechanical artificial agent. In practice, it is usually an electro-mechanical machine which is guided by computer or electronic programming, and is thus able to do tasks on its own. Another common characteristic is that by its appearance or movements, a robot often conveys a sense that it has intent or agency of its own.

    ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE: APPLICATION IN ROBOTICS Artificial intelligence (AI) is the intelligence of machines and the branch of computer science that aims to create it. The field perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chances of success. John McCarthy, who coined the term in 1956,defines it as "the science and engineering of making intelligent as "the study and design of intelligent agents" where an intelligent agent is a system that machines. The field was founded on the claim that a central property of humans, intelligence—the sapience of Homo sapiens—can be so preci

    We want to build humanoid robots capable of rich social interactions with humans, including natural communication, cooperation, and tutelage. Humans display a remarkably flexible and rich array of social competencies, demonstrating the ability to interpret, predict, and respond appropriately to the behavior of others. People understand each other in social terms, allowing us to engage others in a variety of complex social interactions including communication, social learning, and cooperation. Developing robots with these social abilities is a critical step towards enabling them to be intellige

    LANGUAGE STUDY Asimov’s robots can be described as clumsy, hard-working, cost-efficient, soulless, strong, fast, obedient, human-made, a cleaner better breed, more human than man. Robots can be caring, gentle, self-aware, creative, intelligent and also evil, rebellious. Robots are made out of metal, plastic, aluminum, gears, bolts, wheels, sensors, memory chips, and other gadgets. TEXT STUDY Asimov’s book “I, Robot” is full of exciting short stories about human-robot relations. But the one story that really touched me was the first of the nine: Robbie.

    Compromise Strategies for Action Selection Frederick L. Crabbe U.S. Naval Academy, Computer Science Department, 572M Holloway Rd, Stop 9F, Annapolis, MD 21402 U.S.A. ([email protected]) Abstract Among many properties suggested for action selection mechanisms, a prominent one is the ability to select compromise actions, i.e. actions that are not the best to satisfy any active goal in isolation, but rather compromise between the multiple goals. This chapter brie?y reviews the history of compromise behaviour and performs experimental analyses of it in an attempt to determine how much compromis

    Universal Robotics

    1105 words - 5 pages

    INTRODUCTION The term Robot derives from the Czech word “Robota”, meaning forced work or compulsory service, or “Robotnik”, meaning serf. First used to describe fabricated workers in a fictional 1920’s play called Rossum’s Universal Robots (R.U.R) by Czech author Karel Capek (1890-1938). Ancient Greek Poet Homer described maidens of gold, mechanical helpers built by Hephaistos, the Greek God of metalsmiths. The golems of medieval jewish legend were Robot- like servants made of clay, brought to life by a spoken charm. In 1945, Leonardo da vinci drew plans for a mechanical man. Real Robots were
