What Is Robotics?

Robotics is the intersection of science, technology and technology, resulting in machines called robots that replace (or reproduce) human behavior. Robots have always been fascinated by popular culture. R2D2. Optimus prime. Wall. These exaggerated humanoid robot concepts  usually look like  real caricatures. Or is it more progressive than we think? Robots are gaining intelligent and mechanical abilities that do not rule out the possibility of machines like R2D2 in the future.


Robots are products in the field of  robotics  where programmable machines  that can help or mimic human behavior are created. Robots were originally designed to perform monotonous tasks (such as assembling automobiles on an assembly line), but have since expanded  beyond their original uses to perform tasks such as extinguishing fires, cleaning houses, and assisting with incredibly complex tasks. Each robot has a different level of autonomy,  from human-controlled bots that perform tasks that are completely under human  control  to fully autonomous bots that perform tasks without  external influences.
As Technology advances, so  does the field of  robotics. In 2005, 90% of all robots assembled cars in auto factories. These robots mainly consist  of mechanical manipulators that weld or screw certain parts of the car. Today we see an evolved and expanded definition of robotics, which includes the design, creation and use of bots to navigate the harshest conditions on the planet, robots to aid law enforcement, and even robots to aid in almost every aspect of healthcare.

While the  world of robotics is expanding as a whole, robots have some unchanging characteristics.

  1. All robots consist of some kind of mechanical structure. The mechanical aspects of a robot help it to perform tasks in the environment in which it is designed. For example, the wheels of the Mars 2020 Rover are individually motorized and made of titanium tube to withstand the harsh conditions of Mars.
  2. The robot needs electrical components to control and operate the machine. Basically, to power the  majority of robots, they need the same current as a battery. Robots include at least some level of computer programming.
  3. A robot would be just  another piece of a simple machine without the code telling him what to do. When you insert a program into the robot, the robot knows when and how to complete its task.

As artificial intelligence and software  continue to advance, I am sure we will soon see promise in the robotics industry. In the near future, thanks to advances in these technologies, robots will continue to become smarter, more flexible and more energy efficient. They will also become major hubs for smart factories that will help solve more complex problems and keep global supply chains safe. Despite its relatively young age, the robotics industry is filled with delicious promises of progress that science fiction could once only dream of. From the deepest depths of our oceans to thousands of miles, robots will be found in outer space that perform tasks that humans alone could not even dream of.
