    is able to complete its task while a human makes all the decisions this robot is useful. However, if a robot who 's intended purpose is to complete the same task autonomously needs an equal amount of human assistance, this robot is not useful. Generally robots are created to complete tasks humans find dull, or tasks that are dirty or dangerous (Robots Rising., 1998). 4.2 What can robots do right now/what can 't we do without robots In our currant lives robots already perform a huge variety of tasks, both domestic and industrial, to make our lives safer and easier. One of the most common autonomous robots which are currently being used in an everyday households are domestic robot vacuums, but as out technology develops there are now also robotic lawn mowers, mopers and dry cleaners (Evon, D., 2016). However, robots are also very important on an industrial scale to speed up processes, or complete tasks too dangerous for humans. Some of these include military services, car production, space exploration, underwater exploration, duct cleaning, crime fighting, investigation of hazardous environments, commercial agriculture, oil spill clean-up and minimally invasive remote surgery. If we didn 't have robots some of these tasks could not be completed, or take excessive amounts of time to complete (Web Design Schools Guide., 2016). 4.3 How did the tests conducted, and information gathered prove that robots can, or cannot be useful Through the information gathered online, presented…

    be the only opposing force. The chapter on agriculture involving the farmer is closing, and a new chapter in autonomous robots is beginning. Robotics has made a quake in agriculture, and farmers have become aware of the benefits resulting from autonomous robots. From vehicle guidance to automated deweeding, soon there will be nothing left for the farmer, replacing the dirty, dull, and dangerous work. Within itself, autonomous robotics is paving a path to mankind’s future. The integration of…

    The common control technique is to supply instructions to a robot so that it responds in a specific way for specific situations. For example, for an autonomous robot that avoids objects, the application tells the robot to back off anytime the robot comes into an object: a specific response to a specific condition. This activity does not need any human guidance, it is pre-programmed and does not give intelligence to a robot. Fuzzy logic, evolutionary computation, hierarchical control, neural…

    enhancement of each implemented assistive technology. This continuous building allowed for the study and the children to develop and grow simultaneously. (Besio, 2004) Cook, Encarnação, and Adams (2010) conducted a review of similarly focused studies, surveying the implementation of robotic technology to all areas of development and play. This study reviews the definition and components of a robot as well as organizes the levels robot-human autonomy that can be applied to a robot based on its…

    The history of military robotics 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…

    They believe that robots will think the same as human beings, act the same as human beings, and have emotions just like human beings. Having robots do everything a human being would do in their daily lives. However there are a majority of them who believes other wise. There are some scientist who believe designing a robot to do our daily chores can be unethical and robots will only bring bad impacts to humanity because of their imperfections, but the irony about this is that as robotic…

    and Dextre. The Sprinkle 1 was first robot in space, launched on October 4th, 1957 by the USSR. According to the same article “, The Voyager missions are notable for the milestone of having a robot leave the Solar System.” Dextre is a robotic arm that was developed by Canadian Space Association. (Nicholos, 2009) Robots are not only helpful in the military (or in any other locations on earth), they are also helpful on space too. Robots in space include the Remotely Operated Vehicle, Remote…

    Locking mechanism The joints had to be such that they can be loosened and tightened at any required configuration, this obstacle was overcome by the use of wing nut at the end of the screw instead of a normal nut, and the image below shows the wing nut and bolt. This is the most cost effective yet strong way of locking the joints compared to knobs and other clamp mechanisms. Materials For the Robot Arm Construction our group members had a variety of materials to choose from, these materials…
