Robotics - Outline
Robotics is the art and science of making and using robots. Robots are mechanical devices with a control system that gives them some degree of autonomous control. Robots may be mobile or stationary. They are of great interest to researchers in artificial intelligence (AI) because it gives computers a chance to interact with the real world.

Robots have many applications. Industrial robots have long been used for welding and painting. Laboratory robots are used for many repetitive tasks in chemistry, biology and clinical chemistry labs. Medical robots are being designed for Computer Assisted Surgery. In space, robots are being used for unmanned missions to planets, comets and asteroids.

Robotics - Knowledge Bases
  • Center for Fuzzy Logic, Robotics, and Intelligent Systems
    • The Center for Fuzzy Logic, Robotics , and Intelligent Systems (CFL) at Texas A&M; University is one of the leading research organizations in the nation focusing on multi-disciplinary research related to intelligent systems and their applications in Engineering Systems. The research activities of the Center cover emerging technologies including Fuzzy Logic, Robotics, and Robotics.
  • Evolution Robotics: Robot Gallery
    • Ideas for robotics
  • Internet Robotics Sources (The Analog VLSI & Robotics Laboratory, Indiana University)
    • Access to FAQ lists, WWW accessible robots, university and commercial robotics pages, etc.
  • ISA Online Directory - Industry Links (ISA Online)
    • Links to sites of resources and publications of interest to measurement and control professionals.
  • JPL Robotics
    • JPL Robotics researchers perform development, integration, and demonstration of innovative robotics and automation technologies, supporting NASA missions and addressing other problems of national importance. Researchers work toward enabling more efficient, lower cost missions dedicated to planetary surface and solar system exploration, Earth observations from space, astrophysical experiments in space and on the Moon, and the extension of human capabilities in space.
  • Laboratory for Perceptual Robotics (University of Massachusetts)
    • The Laboratory for Perceptual Robotics research areas include dexterous manipulation (reaching and grasping), mobile robot navigation, geometric reasoning, assembly planning, and the application of learning theory to robotics.
  • LoganBot - Lenox High School Bot Building Club
    • "This site details the efforts of the Lenox High School Bot Club towards the construction of a super-heavyweight fighting machine named Logan. We feel that real life engineering projects that incorporate many scientific applications are a great way to bring technology into the classroom."
  • Measurement and Control on the Web (ISA)
    • M&C; on the Web is the place for measurement and control professionals to find the information they need to do their job
  • Motion Control Buyer's Guide (MOTION Magazine)

  • NASA Internet Robotics Resources (Dave Lavery)
    • "Listed here is a compilation of space robotics-related and general purpose robotics-related resources (web sites, ftp sites, gopher sites, newsgroups, etc.) available on the Internet. Although not 100 percent comprehensive (no list of this type ever is complete), it does provide a represenative sample of materials being offered on the 'net."
  • NASA Space Telerobotics Program
    • The NASA Space Telerobotics Program is an element of NASA's ongoing research program, under the responsibility of the Office of Space Science. The program is designed to develop telerobotic capabilities for remote mobility and manipulation, by merging robotics and teleoperations and creating new telerobotics technologies. Space robotics technology requirements can be characterized by the need for manual and automated control, non-repetitive tasks, time delay between operator and manipulator, flexible manipulators with complex dynamics, novel locomotion, operations in the space environment, and the ability to recover from unplanned events.

  • The Robotics Institute
    • Even when robotics technologies were relatively primitive, their potential role in boosting the productivity and competitiveness of the United States was foreseen in the evolving global marketplace. The Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon University was established in 1979 to conduct basic and applied research in robotics technologies relevant to industrial and societal tasks. Seeking to combine the practical and the theoretical, the Robotics Institute has diversified its efforts and approaches to robotics science while retaining its original goal of realizing the potential of the robotics field.
