A robot can be defined as a
device consisting of electronic,
electrical, or mechanical units.
HISTORY OF ROBOT :
first uses of modern robots were in
factories as industrial robots which
allowed production without the need for
robots have been built since the 1960s.
Renaissance Italy, Leonardo da
Vinci (1452–1519) sketched plans for a
humanoid robot around 1495.
will eventually be
capable of communicating
through speech, gestures,
and facial expressions.
TOPIO ("TOSY Ping Pong Playing Robot"):
("TOSY Ping Pong Playing
Robot") is a bipedal humanoid
robot designed to play table tennis against
a human being.
It has been developed since 2005
by TOSY, a robotics firm in Vietnam.
It was publicly demonstrated at the
Tokyo International Robot
Exhibition (IREX) on November 28,
Li-Po battery, 48V 20AH
Brushless DC Servo Motor
High speed camera
DISADVANTAGE OF ROBOT:
us information that humans can't get.
at places 24/7.
can perform tasks faster than humans and
more consistently and accurately.
can entertain us and help us in certain
1) People can lose jobs in factories
2) It needs a supply of power
3) It needs maintenance to keep it
4) It costs money to make or buy a
construction, and use
of machines (robots) to perform
tasks done traditionally by
are widely used in
such industries as automobile
manufacture to perform simple
Artificial intelligence (AI):
intelligence (AI) is the
intelligence exhibited by machines
or software, and the branch
of computer science that develops
machines and software with
research is highly technical and
specialised, and is deeply divided
into subfields that often fail to
communicate with each other.
ROBOTICS IN INDIA:
The Indian Space Research
Organisation (ISRO) is examining the
possibility of establishing a robotic set-up or
unmanned mission on the moon.
Chandrayaan I and II, the basic objective
of the project is to examine whether a
robotic set-up can find the existence of
water, from which we can get hydrogen and
oxygen to use as propellants.
TYPES OF USES IN
robot snakes. Left one has 64 motors
(with 2 degrees of freedom per segment), the
right one 10.
A modern passenger airliner is essentially
a flying robot, with two humans to manage it.
tracks provide even more traction than
a six-wheeled robot.
Tracked wheels behave as if they were made
of hundreds of wheels, therefore are very
common for outdoor and military robots.
Summer robotics camp:
Several national summer camp
programs include robotics as part of
their core curriculum, including Digital
Media Academy, RoboTech, and
Robotics is an essential component in
many modern manufacturing
Sailboat robots have also been developed in
order to make measurements at the surface of
The two main competitions of sailboat robots
are WRSC and Sailbot.
Universities offer bachelors, masters,
and doctoral degrees in the field of
ROBONAUT 2 AN
INDIAN ROBOT :
The space agency is
building Robonaut 2, a robot
designed to eventually help
astronauts by taking over
some of their duties on the
International Space Station.
