According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), the mechanical engineering field, which includes robotics engineers, was projected to experience an average 5 percent employment growth from 2014 to 2024. A factor of this increase is the growing demand for the machines these professionals design as well as the emergence of new technologies.
Real Career Impact
According to a recent survey, robotics has the potential to produce hundreds of thousands of jobs for millennials within the next few years. In a National Robotics Education Foundation poll of 200 senior executives, 81% of respondents cited robotics as one of the top five industrial sectors that will hire new workers through the end of the decade.
The survey also notes that there are currently over 150,000 open robotics positions in the U.S. By 2020, there will be more than half a million new robotics-related jobs. In addition, the U.S. Department of Labor has classified both robotics engineers and robotics technicians as “bright outlook” careers.

A Beginner’s Course
ROBOTICS deals with the design, construction, operation and use of robots, as well as computer systems for their control, sensory feedback and information processing. These technologies are used to develop machines that can substitute for humans and replicable human actions.
Robotics is the Engineering, Science, and Technology which involves the conception and manufacture of robots. Electronics, Mechanics, and Software are brought together. .Robots are used for jobs that are dull, dirty and dangerous.
Robotics is a multi-disciplinary branch of Engineering that overlaps with electronics, computer science, artificial intelligence, mechatronics, nanotechnology, and bio-engineering.
BASICS: The main parts of a Robot are its basic nuts and bolts.
- Control System
- Power supply
- End Effectors
HOW IT WORKS: The vast majority of Robotics have several qualities in common:
- Movable body
- Motorized wheels, dozens of movable segments made of metal or plastic
- Connected by joints
- Activators – Electric motors – solenoids – hydraulic/ pneumatic (gas) systems
- Battery / Electric circuit / Piston cylinder
- LED – like computer mice
APPLICATIONS OF ROBOTICS
- Outer Space Applications
- Military Applications
- Intelligent Home Applications
- Industry Applications
- Health Service Applications
TYPES OF ROBOTS
Mobile Robots – Autonomous Robots – Homebrew Robots
THREE LAWS OF ROBOTS (OR ASIMOV’s Laws)
( Rules devised by Science Fiction writer Isaac Asimov –in his ‘Runaround’ short story 1942)
- First Law – A Robot may not injure a human being
- Second Law – A robot must obey orders given it by human
- Third Law – A Robot must perfect its own existence
LIKE HUMANS MADE UP OF 5 MAJOR COMPONENTS;
ROBOTS = PHYSICAL + INTELLIGENCE + MORALITY
- Body structures
- Muscle system to move the body
- The power source to activate muscles and sensors
- Brain system – to process sensory information & command what to do
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is arguably the most exciting field in Robotics. Everybody agrees that a robot can work in an assembly line, but there’s no consensus on whether a robot can ever be intelligent.
Like the term “robot” itself, artificial intelligence is hard to define. Ultimate AI would be a recreation of the human thought process – a man-made machine with our intellectual abilities. This would include the ability to learn just about anything – the ability to reason, the ability to use language and the ability to formulate original ideas.
Roboticists are nowhere near achieving the level of AI, but they have made much progress with more limited AI. Today’s AI machines can replicate some specific elements of intellectual ability.
Computers can already ‘solve problems’ in limited areas. The basic idea of AI problem-solving is very simple, though its execution is complicated. First, the AI robot or computer gathers facts about a situation through sensors or human input. The computer compares this information to stored data and decides what the information signifies. The computer runs through various possible actions and predicts which action will be most successful based on the collected information. The computer can solve only problems it’s programmed to solve. It doesn’t have any generalized analytical ability.
Some modern robots also have the ability to ‘learn’, of course in a limited capacity. In Japan, Roboticists have taught robots to dance by demonstrating the moves themselves. Some robots can ‘interact socially’. Kismet, a robot at M.I.T’s AI Lab recognizes human body language and voice inflection and responds appropriately.
The real challenge of AI is to understand how natural intelligence works. Just as physical robotic design is a handy tool for understanding animal and human anatomy, AI research is useful for understanding how natural intelligence works. A number of robotics experts predict that robotic evolution will ultimately turn us into cyborgs – human integrated machines.
Trends indicate that robots will certainly play a larger role in our daily lives in the future. In the coming decades, robots will gradually move out of the industrial and scientific worlds into daily life, just as computers invaded homes in the1980s.
