Robotics for School Kids Level 2 (Age 14+)
What is a ROBOT?
There is a misconception that a Robot is a replica of a human, because it portrays, behaves, acts and resembles human beings in appearance or performs functions in a humanlike manner. A robot is a virtual or mechanical artificial agent. In practice, it is usually an electro-mechanical machine which is guided by computer or electronic programming, and is thus able to do tasks on its own. It is also mechanized to reduce human efforts.
Some robots are built to look like people. They have arms, legs, a head and a body. Some even have faces and hair and wear clothes! Other robots are only an arm or hand, if that is all that is necessary to perform their work. In outer space, a robotic arm is usually all that is needed.
The people-type robots can be given "eyes" to see. Actually, the eyes are sensors to keep the robot from bumping into things. Sensors can be "ears," so the robot can obey commands, or sensors can be put into the robot's fingers so it can "feel" what it is holding.
But some robots can recognize cues from a person's behavior and respond to them. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
Robots are widely used in manufacturing, assembly and packing, transport, earth and space exploration, surgery, weaponry, laboratory research, and mass production of consumer and industrial goods.
Today, robots are useful for both work and entertainment, and they will be used for many more things in the future!All of these are basically robots.They all are of different thought.
Compufield's Certificate Course in ROBOT in Mumbai is conducted at our centers in Andheri, Bandra & Kemps Corner ( H.O). Contact our centers now for a free trial session.
Andheri ( Lokhandwala )
