How are robots in automated manufacturing used?
The vast majority of robots in use today are found in the manufacturing industry on automated production and assembly lines and in manufacturing cells.

Automation is the use of computer systems to control industrial machinery and processes, largely replacing human operators.

What can a machine with Artificial Intelligence do?
A machine with artificial intelligence (AI) is one that exhibits human intelligence and behaviour and can demonstrate the ability to learn and adapt through experience.
What 4 advantages are there for robots?
Ideal for repetitive, monotonous, mundane tasks requiring extreme precision.

Can be used in hazardous environments not suitable for human operators.

Able to carry extremely heavy loads. -

Highly flexible when responding to change as they are re-programmable.

What is an Expert system?

A system or software that replicates human decision making. In artificial intelligence, an expert system is a computer system that emulates the decision-making ability of a human expert

What are the disadvantages for robots?
Robots do not have as good sensors as humans (touch, vision, hearing, pattern recognition)

Robots do not have the ability to learn and make decisions.

Robots are not as flexible as humans and are harder to program

Robotics technology is extremely expensive

What are the different levels of complexity for robots?
Level 1= Simple Tasks For example, spot welding, adhesive or sealant application and painting. Level 2 = Applications requiring sensory feedback For example, arc welding, automotive window glazing Level 3 = require more complex sensory capabilities For example, automated assembly processes Level 4 = The most difficult applications are those involving unpredictable behaviour of either the components or other equipment
