Robotics : History
Human v/s Robots
Brain System Neural Technology
Energy Source :
1) Batteries (lead-acid)
2) Pneumatic (compressed gases)
3) Hydraulics (compressed liquids)
The structure of a robot is usually mostly mechanical and can be called a
Kinematic means to provide functionality to Robots being similar to
the skeleton of the human body
Mostly we will see the robots similar to Human Skeleton.
Others like animals ,birds … are rarely seen.
Components: Power Source
Robots get energy from……………
Pneumatic (compressed gases)
Hydraulics (compressed liquids)
Still Untested Energy Source
Nuclear Fusion reactors
Actuators are like the "muscles" of a robot, the parts which convert
stored energy into movement
The most popular actuators are electric motors that spin a wheel or gear,
and linear actuators that control industrial robots in factors
A robot leg powered by Air Muscles
Another Actuators are…………………….
Series Elastic Actuators
The Robotics Technology is right now using prosthetic hands for
Recent research has developed a tactile sensor array that mimics the
mechanical properties and touch receptors of human fingertips.
As a scientific discipline, computer vision is concerned with the
theory behind artificial systems that extract information from
Computer vision systems rely on image sensors which detect
electromagnetic radiation which is typically in the form of either
visible light or infra-red light.
Locomotion is the walking system for robots.
most mobile robots have four wheels. However, some researchers
have tried to create more complex wheeled robots, with only one or
two wheels. e.g.
Other methods of locomotion
Components:Human Robot Interaction
To work as Human want robots must be capable to
interact with human being.
Following are the technologies to make interaction
between Human and Robots.
