Robotics Engineering is a relatively new field of engineering which is solely related to building and improving robots. A robotics engineer spends most of his time designing and planning to make newer and more efficient robots. It also involves designing of processes on which the robots run and also the making of machines which will assemble the robots. The rest of the time is spend on assembly, building and testing of the robots.
To answer the question simply, robotics engineering is totally dedicated to robots – their designing, building, configuration, assembly, testing and improvement. Software systems to control the robotic systems are also designed. Many robotic systems are designed to automate the processes of specific industries to increase their precision levels and production.
The robotics engineer closely analysed and then evaluated the designs and builds a prototype which is tested and improved with further analysis. This is a never ending work because the technology is evolving and advancing rapidly with every passing day.
Robotics Engineering is a new but very exciting field because man has always been fascinated by God’s work and this fascination has lead him to try and make machines which replicate the God’s creation or make something similar to it nonetheless. Robots with highly efficient artificial intelligence are being made but still man has a long way to go to create something which is somewhere close to the God’s creation.
Robotics engineering involves a lot of research related to the designing, production, operation and use of the robotic systems. Most of this research is dedicated to finding solutions to automate the industrial tasks. Moreover, there is a good amount of research done on improving artificial intelligence and now the work is being done to understand and replicate human emotions and make the robots learn to express them. It is believed that someday the robots may become efficient enough to take the place of humans but still there is long way to go.
