3. Robotics deals with the design,
construction, operation, and
use of robots, as well as
computer systems for their
control, sensory feedback, and
information processing. These
technologies are used to
develop machines that can
substitute for humans and
replicate human actions.
A robot is a machine—especially one
programmable by a computer— capable
of carrying out a complex series of
actions automatically. Robots can be
guided by an external control device or
the control may be embedded within.
7. Robots are also employed for
jobs which are too dirty,
dangerous or dull to be
suitable for humans. Robots
are widely used in
and packing, transport,
earth and space exploration,
laboratory research, and
mass production of
consumer, industrial goods
and even doing household

18. HIROSHI ISHIGURO
Ishiguro concentrates on the idea of
making a robot that is as similar as
possible to a live human being.
Ishiguro has made an android that
resembles him, called the Geminoid.
19. Today we find most robots working for people in
industries, factories, warehouses, and laboratories. Robots
are useful in many ways. For instance, it boosts economy
because businesses need to be efficient to keep up with the
industry competition. Therefore, having robots helps
business owners to be competitive, because robots can do
jobs better and faster than humans can, e.g. robot can built,
assemble a car. Yet robots cannot perform every job; today
robots roles include assisting research and industry. Finally,
as the technology improves, there will be new ways to use
robots which will bring new hopes and new potentials.
