Robotics and Automation

What is Robotics?

Robotics is the branch of science that deals with designing artificial devices who are able to perform various complex automated functions. These devices are commonly called as robots. They are being controlled by computer systems and the inbuilt sensors help them to process the information. So in this technology we study design, construction, operation, structural disposition, manufacture and application of robots.
Basically a robot consists of:
  • A mechanical device, such as a wheeled platform, arm, or other construction, capable of interacting with its environment
  • Sensors on or around the device that are able to sense the environment and give useful feedback to the device
  • Systems that process sensory input in the context of the device's current situation and instruct the device to perform actions in response to the situation

Why Robotics?

Robotic technology have been realized to the point that it is becoming a part of our collective experience and every day lives. They are useful in almost all the industrial applications. Those who want to excel in this field will get unlimited opportunities in their career and can grow by leaps and bounds.
Specialising in design and control in robotics is close to mechanical engineering. For hardware design of robots, a B. Tech in electrical or electronics and communication engineering forms a good base. This field also requires the application of computer-integrated manufacturing and biological mechanics.
So a course in robotics trains and educates a student in the field of artificial intelligence, computer-aided manufacturing, computer integrated manufacturing system, computational geometry, robot motion planning, digital electronics and micro processing
This field offers high end jobs and a robotics engineer can apply his mastery in diverse fields like modern warfare, surgery, nano-technology and space-exploration. Many funding programmes and scholarships are available for research and PhD. students. Developing a robot comes with the goal of finding a solution to the problem. Along with the technical know-how, interest in research is essential. This field has no boundaries and will continue to grow until the machines take over
