    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

    Karel Capek was the first to introduce the name robot from the play “R.U.R.” in 1921. The word “Robot” means forced labor and from the Czech language. Later the word robotics was developed by Isaac Asimov and used in a short story called Runaround in 1942. In one of the stories I, Robot was published and in there Asimov wrote the Three Laws of Robotics. He was tired of reading science fiction stories and watching robots being bad and evil so that’s why he made the three laws. In 1979 the Robot Institute of America composed a definition for what a robot is. That definition is a lot different fr

    Advantages And Disadvantages Of Robot

    291 words - 2 pages

    Robots as a new technological tool have advantages and disadvantages. They make an activity safer and easier. For instance, the operator just uses a computer to manufacture a product through a robot and it helps the operator to avoid dangerous situations because he is just controlling it. Likewise, a robot controls quality. This is shown by the following examples, robots are programmed to execute the same task all the time to make sure that the company is going to get the same product result and they are more accurate about measures than an operator. Moreover, a robot performs different tasks

    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

    The year is 2112, a decade where the robotic technology is an essential part of our life. Almost everything is done by the hands of these intelligence robots, ranging from things such as shopping to fighting as soldiers. Despite the fact that they are sentient beings, robots are looked down by the majority of society as merely machines and tools created for the convenience of human beings for the fact that robots have no feelings. However, there are still quite a number of people who are against this and numerous attempts had been made in order to give robots emotions. Unfortunately, all these

    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.

    Fears and concerns about robots have been repeatedly expressed in a wide range of books and films. A common theme is the development of a master race of conscious and highly intelligent robots, motivated to take over or destroy the human race. (See The Terminator, Runaway, Blade Runner, Robocop, the Daleks in Doctor Who, the Replicators in Stargate, the Cylons in Battlestar Galactica,The Matrix, and I, Robot.) Some fictional robots are programmed to kill and destroy; others gain superhuman intelligence and abilities by upgrading their own software and hardware. Examples of popular media where

    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

    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

    Robotics is the science and technology of robots, their design, manufacture, and application. Robotics requires a working knowledge of electronics, mechanics and software, and is usually accompanied by a large working knowledge of many subjects. A person working in the field is a roboticist. Although the appearance and capabilities of robots vary vastly, all robots share the features of a mechanical, movable structure under some form of autonomous control. The structure of a robot is usually mostly mechanical and can be called a kinematic chain (its functionality being similar to the skeleton

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
