a machine that gathers information about its environment and uses that information to follow instructions to do some sort of work
a machine that gathers information about its environment (senses) and uses that information (thinks) to follow instructions to do work (acts)
a machine that moves and does work
a machine that operates without human supervision
a machine which carries out certain operations in accordance with a program of instructions
a machine which/that can replace human workers
a machine which/that looks like a human being
a mechanical device that can perform physical tasks
a mechanical device that can per
a mechanical device that goes through a series of preprogrammed moves, over and over again
a mechanical instrument planned to imitate humans
a mechanical or electronic device that performs some kind of useful work
a mechanical worker
a more complex machine in that it can "learn" to perform repetitive or hazardous tasks or operate in confined or inhospitable places (in space or in the sea)
an attempt by mankind to make a machine that duplicates two or more intelligent aspects of advanced animals, necessarily including autonomous mobility
an automatic machine that does the work of a human
an automatic, responsive, re-programmable machine
an example of a mechanism , whose basic elements are levers, which are also the fundamental components of a pair of scissors, a nail clipper or an eyelash curler
an integration of mechanics, electronics and software
a perfectly machined device that moves in a very smooth sort of way
a programmable, multifunction manipulator designed to move material, parts, tools or special device through variable programmed motions for the performance of a variety of tasks
a programmable, multifunction manipulator designed to move materials, parts tools or special devices through variable programmed motions for the
a reprogrammable, automatically-controlled, multi-functional mechanism which can be integrated into a system and interact with its environment by acquiring and processing sensory data to perform various tasks
a re-programmable mechatronic device, which in some cases can act autonomously, and has the mechanical and control versatility to perform a variety of tasks
a tool and will serve whatever ends mankind makes of it
A programmable device consisting of machinery for sensory activity and mechanical manipulation and connected to (or including) a computer. Typically, these machines automatically perform some task normally done by human beings.
A computer-operated, mechanical body that works on its own to do a variety of jobs. Robots can be programmed, and reprogrammed to move material, parts, tools, or specialized devices through various motions. Robots are not presently "artificial people," but helpful tools used in specific environments. For the time being, most robots could be considered computers with limbs, organs, tools, and other pieces of equipment attached. However, experiments in artificial intelligence are changing the definition of a robot in many ways for the future.
software that can be configured to perform iterative tasks that a common human would become weary of. For example searching newsgroups for certain type of file, downloading the files, and decoding them such as, well, NewsBin of course
short programs written to automatically take care of simple tasks
A mechanical device that resembles a living animal and moves automat ically or by remote control.
Reprogrammable multifunctional manipulator that can move material, parts, or tools through variable programmed motions.
The "arm" mechanism that moves tapes between the drive and the library slots
here: A mechanism moving the disks of a jukebox to the drives.
A robot is a machine or device that operates automatically and includes a physical body, a control system (program), and exhibits some type of behaviour.
Besides being a mechanical device used to mimic human form, usually to accomplish some repetitive task, this term refers to a computer program that scans...
A reprogrammable multifunctional manipulator designed to move material, parts, tools, or specialized devices through variable programmed motion for performance of a variety of tasks.
Machine capable of performing complex physical acts similar to ones done by humans.
a machine that can automatically do tasks normally controlled by humans and mostly is used to perform repetitive tasks on an assembly line. Page 318
Refers to the mechanism you are controlling. Robot and mechanism are used interchangeably.
An easily reprogrammable, computer-controlled device that can physically manipulate its surroundings.
A computer-controlled manipulator capable of locomotion and/or moving items through a variety of spatial motions.
