Robot Technology

As we move further into the technological era of the 21st century, there’s a single question at the forefront of society’s mind. Where is automation taking us? Science fiction has long been predicting the use of Robots in the future, but the future is now. From Tesla’s partnership with Uber to create self-driving cars, to Amazon’s drone delivery and robotic dog project, large corporations are in a race for automation. Artificial intelligence is expanding, and robot technology is becoming our reality. Its purpose is to make our lives more efficient: faster, easier, and smarter than ever before. Scientists and engineers are turning complex problems into elegantly reliable solutions. The applications started off small. From plugged in electronics to remote controlled technology, to the future of automatically performed tasks. Roomba by IRobot was released in 2002, the beginning of a new era. This robot technology solved a tedious problem: vacuuming floors for consumers. What used to take hours now takes no time at all. Just let the robot automatically roam a home for dust and dirt, it does the entire job for you. Fast forward a single decade and we can see this technology permeating the consumers market. Medical robots can perform complex surgeries, 3D printers can build houses in a fraction of the time of construction, and Artificial Intelligence can solve problems in real time due to complex algorithms. Robots now have speech recognition, depth perception for location and transportation utilization, and autonomy in decision making. Robots with a single …
