leave a comment

This article explores the potential for autonomous robots.  Manufacturing arm manipulator robots, which have been successfully incorporated by industry for the last century, repeat actions and do not adapt to environmental changes. Autonomous robots, need to include a higher level of intelligence, to be able to interact with humans in changing environments, where uncertainty exists. Most of the current autonomous applications, still do not incorporate this existing and available technology. The following is an excellent article that reviews the most important current applications for autonomous robots. Enjoy!
