WHAT IS ROBOT?
A Robot is Machine that gathers
information about it’s environment
• A robot is an intelligent system that
interacts with the physical environment
through sensors and effectors.
Robotics can be regarded as a typical and
representative part of Mechatronics, as a
cutting edge technology in this rapidly
expanding research field
A very promising area is nano-techniques.
Results from physics research are
already available, but exploiting and using
them on an industrial scale needs highly
automated processes, it needs the
transfer of technology known from
• The spread-over to smart machine
technology, provides self-calibration, self-
diagnostics, and self-tuning control loops
• Another important area that is profiting
from the advances in robotics is the
control of complex dynamical systems.
Examples are humanoid robots, as well as
vehicles, construction machinery, machine
TYPES OF ROBOTS
• Mobile Robots
• Rolling Robots
• Walking Robots
• Remote-control Robots
• Virtual Robots
• Mobile robots are able to move, usually
they perform task such as search areas.
A prime example is the Mars Explorer,
specifically designed to roam the mars
• Rolling robots have wheels to move
around. These are the type of robots that
can quickly and easily search move
around. However they are only useful in
flat areas, rocky terrains give them a hard
time. Flat terrains are their territory.
Robots on legs are usually brought in
when the terrain is rocky and difficult to
enter with wheels. Robots have a hard
time shifting balance and keep them from
• An autonomous robot is despite its
autonomous not a very clever or intelligent
• The memory and brain capacity is usually
limited, an autonomous robot can be
compared to an insect in that respect.
• In case a robot needs to perform more
complicated yet undetermined tasks an
autonomous robot is not the right choice.
• Virtual robots don’t exits in real life.
• Virtual robots are just programs, building
blocks of software inside a computer.
• A virtual robot can simulate a real robot or
just perform a repeating task.
• Going to far away planets
• Spying on people in ways people can't
move and from views humans can't reach
• Going far down into the unknown waters
where humans would be crushed
• Giving us information that humans can't
get Working at places 24/7 without any
salary and food. Plus they don't get bored
• They can perform tasks faster than
humans and much more consistently and
• They can capture moments just too fast
• Most of them are automatic so they can
go around by themselves without any
• They can entertain us and help us in
• People can lose jobs in factories
• It needs a supply of power
• It needs maintenance to keep it
• It costs money to make or buy a robot
Applications and examples
• Intelligent robots will offer novel chances
in various ways and for different areas.
• Robots for the extension of the human
work range are being used in areas such
as space underwater, and the micro and
nano world. An example will be given
• Robots for the alleviation of humans
from hard or dangerous work will be used
as intelligent tools in complex
• Examples are machinery for construction
work, in tunneling sewage channelling and
cleaning, waste disposal, de-mining, de-
construction of nuclear power-plants.
• Embedded robotics is an extension
of machine-oriented robotics to
systems. Applications range from
‚cartronics’,‚domotronics’, to medical
systems, and to advanced man-machine-
interfaces making use of wearable
