The grow-out house service robot (GOHbot) is designed to perform maintenance within a chicken house in a more sanitary way than that of human maintenance. The purpose of GOHbot’s implementation is to improve flock quality by reducing bacterial contamination without compromising meat yield. The literature discusses disease prevalence in chicken grow-out houses, especially that of Campylobacteriosis, which requires a solution like GOHbot. Multiple sources discuss the unique chicken grow-out house environment and the challenges it presents for the maneuverability and perceptive capabilities of agricultural vehicles like GOHbot. Several sources outline the technologies that govern LiDAR scanners and Kinect 3D cameras, both…
ability to access materials in information to build basic robots, creating a drastic increase in ideas and concepts in robot design. Humans have always placed high expectations upon robots, as world conquering wonder machines which are able to make our lives easier, solve all our problems for us and allow us to become increasingly lazy.
However, is the amount of technology we have available enough to create a completely autonomous robot which can critically think and make decisions? And if not,…
Technologies are an Additional Value to the Hotel Industry
Can you image a hotel fully staffed by robots? The Henn-na Hotel in Nagasaki is the first hotel where technologies bring the guests one step further into the future (“Henn-na Hotel General Concept”).It is the first hotel in the world where the hotel is staffed by robots. The journey starts at the front desk where guests will be welcomed by robots that speak multiple languages that will help to check- in and out. Then, a robotic arm will…
First we must look at what a robot is and from a definition given by a leading United States robotics research institute, where they defined a robot as a multifunctional, reprogrammable manipulator that has been made and is designed to actuate the movement of tools, materials, specialized devices and parts through variable motions that are programmed in order for the performance of different tasks as required by man (Robot Institute of America, 1979). The term robot was…
In the July 2017 issue of Reason, the article, “Are Robots Going To Steal Our Jobs?” written by Ronald Bailey elaborates how technology is not killing our employment, but evolving and improving it. Bailey explains that for centuries people have worried that advances in technology would cause problems with unemployment; however, every time, more jobs seem to be created. He states that humans will always work, but that jobs might differ from what they are now. Pointing out another issue skeptics…
The concept of mechanical weapons of death flying through the sky is an idea that is definitely hard to wrap one’s head around. While those who were raised to the tune of movies like “The Terminator” could be understandably hesitant at the thought of allowing military robots to lead airstrikes on other countries in the world. Others agree that drones can be a huge asset that can revolutionize warfare. Either way it’s pros and cons help to create a major topic of debate in modern day society,…
dates back to World War II and the Cold War. During those times of spying, weaponry and strategic attacks, these robots were in the form of Germany’s type of robotics and Russian weaponry called “teletanks”. It originated combined with a radio controlled boat intended to use by the military from Nicola Tesla. As the Soviets had created the teletanks, they were modified to be controlled by the radio signals. Weather conditions made it pretty tough to use, but their signal reaches roughly five…
Filmmakers, pop science writers, and scientists explain how robots develop intelligence, and potentially emotions. In a live science article, computer scientists, Bill Hibbard explains that robots will have human-like intelligence sometime in the 21st century. Explaining how these AI robots will overtake humans in 2100 he says the robots intelligence will be astounding. In another article by Sony Pictures the authors explain how they have a robot film called “Chappie” that was the first droid to…
industry, robots are becoming an important part (Anandan). They do not work on their own, but are controlled by the human to perform the work (Anandan).
What is the impact on your job when robots are cheap? “Robots are never going to be cheap” Newton Medical Center Obstetrics doctor, Kent Bradley said in an interview (Bradley). If they do become cheaper, they will be more available to smaller hospitals (Bradley). Newton Medical Center was the fifth hospital to get the Da Vinci Surgical System…
