Robotics is the art and science of making and using robots. Robots are mechanical devices with a control system that gives them some degree of autonomous control. Robots may be mobile or stationary. They are of great interest to researchers in artificial intelligence (AI) because it gives computers a chance to interact with the real world.
Robots have many applications. Industrial robots have long been used for welding and painting. Laboratory robots are used for many repetitive tasks in chemistry, biology and clinical chemistry labs. Medical robots are being designed for Computer Assisted Surgery. In space, robots are being used for unmanned missions to planets, comets and asteroids.
The Center for Fuzzy Logic, Robotics , and Intelligent Systems (CFL) at Texas A&M University is one of the leading research organizations in the nation focusing on multi-disciplinary research related to intelligent systems and their applications in Engineering Systems. The research activities of the Center cover emerging technologies including Fuzzy Logic, Robotics, and Robotics.
JPL Robotics researchers perform development, integration, and demonstration of innovative robotics and automation technologies, supporting NASA missions and addressing other problems of national importance. Researchers work toward enabling more efficient, lower cost missions dedicated to planetary surface and solar system exploration, Earth observations from space, astrophysical experiments in space and on the Moon, and the extension of human capabilities in space.
The Laboratory for Perceptual Robotics research areas include dexterous manipulation (reaching and grasping), mobile robot navigation, geometric reasoning, assembly planning, and the application of learning theory to robotics.
"This site details the efforts of the Lenox High School Bot Club towards the construction of a super-heavyweight fighting machine named Logan. We feel that real life engineering projects that incorporate many scientific applications are a great way to bring technology into the classroom."
"Listed here is a compilation of space robotics-related and general purpose robotics-related resources (web sites, ftp sites, gopher sites, newsgroups, etc.) available on the Internet. Although not 100 percent comprehensive (no list of this type ever is complete), it does provide a represenative sample of materials being offered on the 'net."
The NASA Space Telerobotics Program is an element of NASA's ongoing research program, under the responsibility of the Office of Space Science. The program is designed to develop telerobotic capabilities for remote mobility and manipulation, by merging robotics and teleoperations and creating new telerobotics technologies. Space robotics technology requirements can be characterized by the need for manual and automated control, non-repetitive tasks, time delay between operator and manipulator, flexible manipulators with complex dynamics, novel locomotion, operations in the space environment, and the ability to recover from unplanned events.
Even when robotics technologies were relatively primitive, their potential role in boosting the productivity and competitiveness of the United States was foreseen in the evolving global marketplace. The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University was established in 1979 to conduct basic and applied research in robotics technologies relevant to industrial and societal tasks. Seeking to combine the practical and the theoretical, the Robotics Institute has diversified its efforts and approaches to robotics science while retaining its original goal of realizing the potential of the robotics field.
"Much of this information is gleaned from the Robotics Internet Resources Page of LPR, UMass. , which in turn was created using the comp.robotics FAQ maintained by Kevin Dowling (firstname.lastname@example.org). or using Jonathan Fletcher's JumpStation and just plain WWW surfing. Reading comp.robotics.misc and comp.robotics.research also helped a lot."
