Robotics

Robotics is the study of the design and use of robots, particularly for use in manufacturing and related processes. The dividing line between automated machine and robot is not precise.  Automated machines which are likely to classified as robots usually have at least one of the following characteristics (1) be mobile (2) carry their controller with them (3) perform tasks originally designed for people or animals (4) have a physical form incorporating some element of human or animal layout.
