  3. 3. The definition of robot • An electro-mechanical machine which can resemble human action and movement ranging from speaking , jumping to service people and playing the music. • A robot is a "machine that looks like a human being and performs various complex acts or a "device that automatically performs complicated often repetitive tasks", or a "mechanism guided by automatic controls". In practical terms, "robot" usually refers to a machine which can be electronically programmed to carry out a variety of physical tasks or actions. 11/19/2013

  6. 6. Types of robot Modular robot Collaborative robots • a new breed of robots that are designed to increase the utilization of the robots by modularizing the robots. • The functionality and effectiveness are easier to increase compared to conventional robots • a robot that can safely and effectively interact with human works • most are manufactured by Universal Robots in Denmark • However, these robots can easily create hazard 11/19/2013 Modern robots • As robots have become more advanced , experts and academics have increasingly explored the questions of what ethics might govern robots' behavior and whether robots might be able to claim any kind of social, cultural, ethical or legal rights. One scientific team has said that it is possible that a robot brain will exist by 2019. Others predict robot intelligence breakthroughs by 2050.
  7. 7. Kinds of appearance Materials used : 1)Plastics : expanded PVC , EPVC Acrylic Expanded Polyethylene 2)metals: there are a wide variety of metals available today, Aluminum is available in various grades and alloys therefore robots can be painted on many colour. 11/19/2013

  11. 11. Robots that work in industries Industrial robots usually consist of a jointed arm (multi-linked manipulator) and an end effector that is attached to a fixed surface. A Pick and Place robot in a factory The International Organization for Standardization gives a definition "an automatically controlled, reprogrammable, multipurpose, manipulat or programmable in three or more axes, which may be either fixed in place or mobile for use in industrial automation applications.” Articulated welding robots used in a factory 11/19/2013

  37. 37. ADVANTAGE of robots From the result of the survey, message from the video and research, we can know the following advantages that the robots bring. Economy • Reduce cost in companies(in long term) • robots are tireless, robots work without taking breaks, lunches, sick time • Robots protect workers from work that could be hazardous to workers' mental or physical health. • Robots produce consistent, highquality goods faster and cheaper. 11/19/2013 Industries • create high-quality products, increase production, and perfect applications. • increase work efficiency • decrease workload • Reduce Scrap and Manufacturing Costs • Automatic Changeover for Different Products • reduce the number of human injuries. Society • Make life more convenience • Increase human resourses Medicine • robots can perform surgery quicker and more accurate • allowing for the patient to feel less pain
  38. 38. DISADVANTAGE of robots From the result of the survey, message from the video and research, we can know the following disadvantages that the robots bring. Economy Industries Society • )They break down and may not work for days, weeks, months. Robots come out dated and then become scrap metal and there are problems with disposal of the parts , this increase the operation cost of the companies • Need to spend a lot of time to invent a new robot • expensive • take up a lot of space and require a staff of engineers to maintain and operate • they cannot do something they are not designed to do • increase the unemployment rate • produce lots of electronic waste • make people lazy • Conflicts in the society: People who want robots VS People who do not want robots 11/19/2013

The opinions of the interviewees NO. of people who think root will be wisely use in our future No Yes 0 5 10 15 20 25 30 35 40 45 No. of interviewees Most of the people agreed that robot will be wisely use in our future. More and more robots will be used in the future, while the technology improved. 11/19/2013 50
  40. 40. Conclusion After doing this project, we can know that…       There are three kinds of robots: modular, Collaborative and modern robots Robots are made by plastic and metal Many people not knowing too much about robots. Robots can bring many benefits: 1. increase the productivity in industries. 2. make life more convenience 3. Time-saving 4. Decrease workload But it can also bring harms: 1. high operation cost 2. make people lazy and dependence 3. increase the unemployment rate 4.Produce lots of electronic waste. Although robots brings disadvantage to us , if we can use them wisely, they can still bring benefits to us and good for our society. 11/19/2013
