What is Robotics?

Robotics is the type of specialized engineering that deals with the design, construction, operation, and application of robots.

A Robot is any man-made machine that can perform work or other actions normally performed by humans.

Robots can be operated by remote control (known as teleoperated robots), automatically by themselves (known as autonomous robots), or a combination of teleoperated and autonomous operation (known as hybrid robots). Robots have become more popular over time because they are able to perform very repetitive tasks or very dangerous tasks in the place of humans.

Robotic assembly lines can build cars,
computers, and other things that you
use in everyday life.

Service robots can clean your floor,
mow the lawn, or assist those
with disabilities.

Police robots can investigate risky situations
while human officers control
them from a safe distance.

Deep sea robots crawl on the ocean’s floor,
discovering new life that thrives
nearly six miles under water.
