Robotics

The International Standard Organisation, defines a robot as an automatically controlled reprogrammable, multipurpose manifestative machine, with or without locomotion, for use in industrial automation applications. Robotics is all about designing robots, maintaining them, developing new applications and conducting research.

Robots are built to work repeatedly and accurately even in hazardous environments. They are programmed in a way that enables them to operate automatically. That's why a robot is called a re-programmable machine.

In India, studies related to robot techology and its implications are conducted by the Department of Science and Technology(DST) and Department of Scientific and Industrial Research. The research and development thrust is carried out by DST, Department of Electronics and Department of Ocean Development. IITs, too, have taken the lead in designing programmes in robotics.

Areas Of Specialisation:

In robotics, there are different areas of specialisation. For examples, a student who specialises in designing and control, in robotics is close to mechanical engineering. If you want to specialise in control and hardware design of robots, a B.Tech. degree in electrical or electronics engineering holds the key. A computer design programmer can look at hardware design in robotics. The control part of the robot is all about certain aspects of electrical engineering.

SCOPE:

A specialisation in robotics engineering may lead to potential career opportunities in manufacturing, research and engineering, agriculture, mining, nuclear, power-plant maintenances and a variety of other areas. Besides, there is great scope for qualified experts and researchers to associate themselves with different segments of R & D in robotics.

As the recent global career trend in robotics suggests, fields so diverse as surgery, modern warfare and nanotechnology have registered a remarkable increase recently in their demand for technical experts and researches in robotics.

One of the great ways to learn about robotics is to take part in robotics competitions organised by IITs every year. Students from various engineering colleges and high schools can take part in this technical festival. Surveys conducted by the government and private agencies reveal that the robots enhance the job quality, productivity, product quality, profiatbility for those who work in hazardous environments. Japan has the largest number of robots and only 3 percent of the workforce is unemployed there. The use of robots creates jobs and people who are working manually can be rehabilitated in different areas through training. Even, robots require maintenance, programming and design change. So, if you rehabilitate the displaced workers and train them in handling different aspects of robots, it will lead to increased productivity.
