A mobile robot is an automatic machine that is capable of moving in many environments and is the focus of research in many major universities. These robots are also used in the military, in security, household environments, and in business industries. They are classified by the type of environment that they are built to work in or by the way the move. Classifications include Unmanned Arial Vehicles or UAVs, autonomous underwater vehicles or AUVs, wheeled robots, and legged robots. Mobile...
Vehicular automation uses artificial intelligence and mechatronics to aid an operator in controlling a robotic vehicle. Some of these vehicles are labeled “smart” or “intelligent,” while others that are more capable of moving on their own are known as “semi-autonomous.” Those robots that rely only on autonomous movement are simply known as “autonomous” or “robotic.” There are several types of vehicles that use automation to operate and the capabilities of these robots have...
A ballbot is a mobile robot that moves and balances on one wheel. It is dynamically stable and capable of a larger range of movement than other types of robots, because it can maneuver better in tighter spaces. It runs on the same principles as those of an inverted pendulum, It is thought that this robot could make great personal or service robots in the future. Currently, ballbot robots can only traverse smooth surfaces, but it is thought that models could be easily adapted to move on rough...
An android, also known as a synthetic organism, is a robot designed to look like a human, with emphasis on realistic skin and movement. The name “android” has been used in science fiction stories in many different ways. The Oxford English Dictionary found that the earliest use of the word Android was most likely in Ephraim Chambers' Cyclopaedia, which referred to St. Albertus Magnus’s alleged automaton as Androides. In US patents, the term first appears in 1863 referring to small...
Robotics is a branch of technology that deals with the design, construction, operation and application of robots and autonomous systems, as well as the computer systems that power such devices, including control, sensory feedback and information processing. Robots are typically designed as automated machines that can take the place of humans. Most robotic machines can be seen in manufacturing lines, such as widely used in the auto industry. Robots are also utilized to replace humans in...
