  1. 1. ROBOTICS Amanda Hughes
  2. 2. DEFINITION OF ROBOTICS <ul><li>Robotics is the science and technology of robots, their design, manufacture, and application. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  3. 3. VIDEOS <ul><li>&quot;I, Robot&quot; Trailor </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;AI: Artificial Intelligence&quot; Trailor </li></ul><ul><li>&quot;Bicentennial Man&quot; Trailor </li></ul>
  4. 4. LAWS OF ROBOTICS <ul><li>Law Zero: </li></ul><ul><li>A robot may not injure humanity, or, though inaction, allow humanity to come to harm. </li></ul><ul><li>Law One: </li></ul><ul><li>A robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm, unless this would violate a higher order law. </li></ul><ul><li>Law Two: </li></ul><ul><li>A robot must obey orders given it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with a higher order law. </li></ul><ul><li>Law Three: </li></ul><ul><li>A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with a higher order law. </li></ul>
  5. 5. HISTORY OF ROBOTICS <ul><li>The term robot originates from the Czech word robota , meaning “compulsory labor.” </li></ul><ul><li>The first industrial robots were Unimates developed by George Devol and Joe Engelberger in the late 50’s and early 60’s. </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul></ul>
  6. 6. HISTORY OF ROBOTICS <ul><li>Mobile Robotics moved into its own in 1983 when Odetics introduced this six-legged vehicle which was capable of climbing over objects. </li></ul>
  7. 7. MODERN USES FOR ROBOTICS <ul><li>Exploration </li></ul><ul><li>Robots are sent to explore dangerous places that humans are unable to reach. </li></ul><ul><li>Industry </li></ul><ul><li>Robots can do many things </li></ul><ul><li>faster than humans plus they do </li></ul><ul><li>not have to be paid like a human. </li></ul>
  8. 8. MODERN USES FOR ROBOTICS <ul><li>Medicine </li></ul><ul><li>There have been many advances in medical technology in the recent years due to robots. Robots are more accurate & precise than humans. </li></ul><ul><li>Military & Police </li></ul><ul><li>The military & police forces </li></ul><ul><li>use robots to go places where </li></ul><ul><li>they might be injured or killed. </li></ul><ul><li>They also use robots to find </li></ul><ul><li>bombs and land mines. </li></ul>
  9. 9. ROBOTS MIMICKING ANIMALS <ul><li>Researchers are now developing robots to mimic insects. They use the organisms to create better robots or use the robots to better understand the organisms. </li></ul><ul><li>Not only do researchers study the organism as a whole but they are also studying the many different parts. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  10. 10. ROBOTS MIMICKING HUMANS <ul><li>Humanoid robots can help to better understand humans. </li></ul><ul><li>Humanoid robots are robots that are based on the overall appearance of the human body. </li></ul><ul><li>They can adapt to changes in their environment and themselves and still reach given goals. </li></ul><ul><li> </li></ul>
  11. 11. ROBOTICS OF THE FUTURE <ul><li>The first may be a small, very self-sufficient robot vacuum cleaner that maps a residence, plans its own routes and schedules, keeps itself charged and empties its dust bag when necessary into a larger container, working for months unattended. </li></ul>
  12. 12. ROBOTICS OF THE FUTURE <ul><li>Larger machines with manipulator arms and the ability to perform several different tasks may follow, culminating eventually in human-scale &quot;universal&quot; robots that can run application programs for most simple chores. </li></ul>
  13. 13. ROBOTICS OF THE FUTURE <ul><li>By 2030, a second generation of robots is expected to appear with mammal like brainpower and cognitive ability. They will have conditioned learning mechanisms, the ability to learn from past experiences, and the ability to adapt to different circumstances. </li></ul><ul><li>A third generation will think like small primates and maintain physical, cultural and psychological models of their world. </li></ul><ul><li>A fourth generation will be more humanlike and have the ability to abstract and reason from the world model. </li></ul>
  14. 14. DISCUSSION TOPICS <ul><li>Can robots think? </li></ul><ul><li>Will robots really be able to do all the things expected of them in the future? </li></ul><ul><li>Will robots eventually be able to take the place of humans? </li></ul><ul><li>Do you think it’s worth spending the money to research robots for military & police usage? </li></ul>
