These technologies deal with automated mechanisms that can take the place of humans in hazardous environments or industrial processes, or bear a resemblance to humans in appearance, actions, and/or awareness. Numerous of today's robots are motivated by nature contributing to the field of bio-inspired robotics
A robot is a machine-driven or computer-generated mock agent, usually electrically motorized mechanisms that is directed by a processing program or electrical motherboard. Robots can be independent or semi dependent and range from humanoids such as “Honda's Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility (ASIMO) and TOSY's TOSY Ping Pong Playing Robot (TOPIO) to industrial robots, collectively programmed swarm' robots, and even microscopic nano robots. By mimicking a lifelike appearance or automating movements, a robot may convey a sense of intelligence or thought of its own.”(Oxford 2)
The idea of making machines that can operate separately dates back to traditional times, but study into the functionality and possible uses of robots did not grow significantly until the 20’s period during the course of history, robotics has been often seen to copy human actions, and regularly accomplish tasks in an alike manner. Nowadays, robotics is a swiftly increasing fields, as scientific advances…
