The first digitally operated and programmable robot was invented by George Devol in 1954 and was ultimately called the Unimate.

Robotics is a branch of engineering that involves conception, design, and manufacturing. It is a field that overlaps with electronics, computer, science, artificial intelligence, and bio-engineering. These technologies include artificial muscles, elastic cables, artificial brain, fast-moving robots, artificial noses or tactile finger devices and have the potential to bring artificial devices one step closer to living organism and humans.

Let’s move on to the advantages.

  • First, robots and machines have the ability to work around the clock since they do not require breaks
  • This allows the increase of production and profit margin because of faster completion time.
  • Thirdly Robots make fewer mistake than humans and it saves companies time,
  • Fourth its flexibility increased with being capable of performing a variety of tasks and applications
  • Fifth and lastly, Robots are more precise and consistent than human workers.

After understanding, the advantages let’s now move on to its disadvantages

  • Human Dependency
  • Lack of emotion

Robots may be helpful in making work easier and providing consumption of less human energy but we should always remember that robots come with their share of limitations.
