Robotics - An Introduction

So What is Robotics?

What is Robotics? A Look Back

1.A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. 1.A robot must obey any orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the First Law. 1.A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the First or Second Law.

A robot is a virtual or mechanical artificial agent. In practice, it is usually an electro-mechanical system which, by its appearance or movements, conveys a sense that it has intent or agency of its own. There is no consensus on which machines qualify as robots, but there is general agreement among experts and the public that robots tend to do some or all of the following: move around, operate a mechanical limb, sense and manipulate their environment, and exhibit intelligent behavior, especially behavior which mimics humans or other animals.
