Robots and Robotics

Robotics is a branch of science that deals with the design, construction, operation, and use of robots. Robots can be used in any situation and for any purpose, but today many are used in dangerous environments, manufacturing processes, or where it is not safe for humans.

A robot can be any type of programmable machine that is capable of movement and can be used to perform physical tasks.
