RoboticsDVD - 2015
Robots. The mere word conjures up a bevy of mind-bending images pulled straight from popular science fiction tales. But robots aren’t just the stuff of entertainment. They’re real. They’re everywhere around you. And they’re transforming your life in ways you can’t imagine. Ours is a world increasingly defined by the cutting-edge field of robotics. Today, we live among marvelous machines that can do things like: provide support for soldiers in challenging terrain, assist highly trained surgeons in performing medical procedures more precisely, explore the harsh environments of space that astronauts can’t yet visit, manufacture products with a speed unmatched by human hands. In short, the future of human civilization depends on collaborative robotics: humans and machines working together.
