  • 1. Robotics
    • Robotics is the science and technology of robots, including their design, manufacture, and application.
    • Robotics requires a working knowledge of electronics, mechanics, and software.
    • A robot is an electro-mechanical or biomechanical device that can perform autonomous or preprogrammed tasks.
  • 2. Branches of Robotics
    • Robotics being a combination of electronics, software and so other fields, has a great number of branches.
    • Some of them are: -
    • Android science.
    • Artificial intelligence.
    • Nanorobotics.
    • Robot surgery.
    • Laboratory robotics.
    • Robot locomotion.
    • Telepresence.
    • Swarm robotics.
    • Speech processing.
  • 3. Android Science
    • Android science is a new branch for studying human and robot interaction based on the premise that a very humanlike robot (that is, an android) can produce human-directed social responses in human beings.
    • The android's ability to produce human-directed social responses enables researchers to employ an android in experiments with human participants as it can be more precisely controlled than a human actor.
  • 4. Artificial Intelligence
    • Artificial intelligence (AI) is both the intelligence of machines and the branch of computer science which aims to create it.
    • It is generally defined as the study and design of intelligent agents , where an intelligent agent is a system that tries to maximize its chances of success by taking into account its environment.
    • John McCarthy first used this term in1956.
    • Researchers hope that artificial intelligence will help machines in reasoning, knowledge, planning, learning, communication, perception and the ability to move and manipulate objects.
  • 5. Nanorobotics
    • Nanorobotics is the technology of creating robots close to the scale of nanometres or a robot which allows precision interactions with nanoscale objects.
    • Nanomachines are largely in the research but some molecular machines have been tested. An example is a sensor having a switch approximately 1.5 nanometers across, capable of counting specific molecules in a chemical sample.
  • 6. Robot surgery
    • Robotic surgery is the use of robots in performing surgery.
    • Three major advances aided by surgical robots have been remote , minimally invasive and unmanned surgery.
    • Major advantages of robotic surgery are : -
    • Precision.
    • Miniaturization.
    • 3-D magnification.
    • Its dis advantages are: -
    • Analysis is limited by available sensory inputs
    • Increases job shortages.

  • 7. Laboratory Robotics
    • Laboratory robotics is the act of using robots in biology or chemistry labs.
    • Its advantages are: -
    • Faster processing .
    • Increased repeatability and productivity.
    • Improved efficiency.
    • Its dis advantages are: -
    • Increases job shortages.
    • Analysis is limited by available sensory inputs .
    • It is difficult to automate in instances where visual analysis, recognition or comparison is required.
  • 8. Robot locomotion
    • Robot locomotion is the study of designing robot control mechanisms to allow robots to move efficiently.
    • Though wheeled robots are quite energy efficient and easy to control, they cannot be used in rocky terains.
    • A major goal in this field is to develop capabilities for robots to decide to move prpoerly themseles.
    • However, coordinating a large number of robot joints for even climbing stairs is difficult.

  • 9. Telepresence
    • Telepresence is the study of giving an illusion of being at a place without being there physically.
    • The best example of telepresence is in robot surgery where the surgeon gives instructions to the robot about the surgery from a faraway place.
    • It can also be used for conducting important conferences across nations.

  • 10. Swarm Robotics
    • Swarm robotics is a new approach to the coordination of multirobot systems which consist of large numbers of mostly simple physical robots.
    • It is supposed that a desired collective behavior emerges from the interactions between the robots and interactions of robots with the environment.

  • 11. Speech processing
    • Speech processing is the study of speech signals and the processing methods of these signals.
    • This study enables robots to recognize and memorize voices.
    • The first robot that can recognize and remember voices is the QRIO developed by Sony.
