have been the stuff of sci-fi for nearly 100 years now. There’s something
inherently fascinating about something that moves like a human, or thinks like
a human, and isn’t one. Robots will become a bigger part of our lives, and a
much bigger part of the way we think about the world, and about the big changes
we’re seeing in the economy. Robotics technology is advancing in a way that
robots are going to take over most labor jobs. Robots can be: drivers,
astronauts, soldiers, babysitters and rescuers.
saving robots is here to lend you a hand. With advancements in technology,
robots have started to replace humans like never before. Be it serving food in
restaurants or working in fields, humanoid robots are today capable of doing
everything that would have once remained only a figment of our imagination.

the science and engineering challenge of making an ‘autonomous robot, a robot
that can do things for itself, run for that length of time in an environment it
has no control over. Normally when you put robots into places you have to
control everything, to tie things down, make sure nobody gets in the robot’s
way. You want to be able to make a robot cope in a real human environment. Let’s
see! This issue could be resolved in future due to the technology advancement.
