Todays Topic IS Robotics + Revolution What is means? What ? Mobile robots Articulated arm Construction robots Future MEMS drone Bee! Humanoid UAV drone Science fiction: TV show series? The American Revolution? The second revolution following the internet revolution Industrial automation
Why Robotics Three factors drive the adoption of robots: improved productivity in the increasingly competitive international environment; improved quality of life in the presence of a significantly aging society; and removing first responders and soldiers from the immediate danger/action. Economic growth, quality of life, and safety of our first responders continue to be key drivers for the adoption of robots.
The word “Robot” was coined in 1920 by Karel Capek and his brother, Josef Capek. Karel was a Czech writer looking for a word to call the artificial creatures in his play! To read Karel Čapek’s drama R. U. R. (Rossum’s Universal Robots) of 1921 Mechatronics is English-Japanese term coined by Mr. Mori in 1971 to describe the integration of mechanical and electronic engineering. Mr. Tetsuro Mori Origin “Mechatronics is the synergistic integration of mechanical engineering with electronics and intelligent computer control in the design and manufacturing of industrial products and processes” 1 1 IEEE/ASME Transactions on Mechatronics
Sensing and perception research seeks the implementation of detectors, instruments and techniques for localization, integration and standardization of capabilities, proprioception, obstacle detection, object recognition, and the processing of that data into a system’s perception of itself and its environment Mobility research includes design and of vehicles for surface locomotion, aviation, and maritime that use modes of transport such as tracked, wheeled and walking motion, paddling, wings, propelling, flapping, sliding, gliding, and many others. Contemporary manipulation research is focused on force and position control, compliance, robotic hand-eye coordination, robot tactile control, dexterous manipulation, grasping, articulated multi-arm control, and tool use Autonomous systems research seeks to improve performance with a reduced burden on crew and ground support personnel, achieving safe and efficient control and enabling decisions in complex and dynamic environments Mobility Hearing Cognitive Vision Big Dog-Boston Dynamics Small UGV- iRobot UAV-MQ-9 Robotic fish-University of Essex Robotic Hummingbird-ASL Belgium Games in Rehab Robot Writer-KUKA Grasping- Barrett hand Detection and obstacle avoidance Object-tracking Vacuum Cleaning Roomba/iRobot Simulated intelligent shopping- PR2 Industrial automation robot- Baxter Rethink Robotics
Modern Robotics is a branch of engineering technologies that involves the conception, design, manufacturing, and operation of intelligent systems. This field overlaps with electronics, computer science, artificial intelligence, electrics, mechanics, micro/nanotechnology, biology, medicine, etc. A Broader Definition Classification of Robotics by Application Pushing the limits

Industrial Robotics “Manufacturing” The manufacturing sector represents 14% of the GDP and 11% of the total employment. Close to 70% of the net export from the U.S. is related to manufacturing. The sale of robotics for manufacturing grew 44% during 2011 Robotics represents a $5B industry in the U.S. that is growing steadily at 8% per year. Robotics industry is supported by the manufacturing industry, which provides the instrumentation, auxiliary automation equipment, and the systems integration adding up to a $20B industry
Industrial Robotics “Manufacturing” The use of robots is shifting from big companies such as GM, Ford, Boeing, and Lockheed Martin to small- and medium-sized enterprises There is a need to educate a new generation of workers for the factory floor and to provide clear career paths for young people entering the field of manufacturing Last two years, robotics celebrated its 50-year anniversary in terms of deployment of the first industrial robot at a manufacturing site.
Healthcare and Medical Robotics Snake-like robotic for endoscopic surgical procedures Capture human state and behavior In-clinic and in-home servicing specific tasks Augment human mobility and capability Learning and Adaptation Minimally invasive surgical robot- Da Vinci Human machine interaction
Healthcare and Medical Robotics Robotics technologies are being developed toward promoting aging in place, delaying the onset of dementia, and providing companionship to mitigate isolation and depression. Robots are also being used for surgery, rehabilitation and in intelligent prostheses to help people recover lost function. More than 11 million people live with severe disabilities and need personal assistance 40+% annual growth in the number of medical procedures performed using robots.
Service Robotics Service robotics is defined as those robotic systems that assist people in their daily lives at work, in their houses, for leisure, and as part of assistance to the handicapped and elderly, etc. Healthcare & Quality of Life Energy & Environment Manufacturing & Logistics Automotive & Transportation Homeland Security & Infrastructure Protection Entertainment & Education Scientific and Technical Challenges Mobility: autonomously driving cars, 3D navigation..
