What is robotics?

Find out all about robotics and its applications.


As NASA puts it, robotics is all about studying… robots. This is the science that looks at the way robots are designed, built, operated and even used in ‘real-world’ conditions.

The main verticals behind robotics are mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and computer science.

Robots are today as intelligent as never before and a wide range of them is now able to operate independently.

Robots are built in similarity with the human body by mimicking muscles, the way they move, contract and bend to carry out their functions.
