Micro:bit is a peripheral device designed by BBC in UK. Microbit is an open source hardware with 25 LED’S, two programmable buttons, and can be powered by either USB or an external battery pack. Micro:bit has an ARM Cortex-MO processor, accelerometer, compass, magnetometer sensors, Bluetooth and USB connectivity. Micro:bit inputs and outputs are through five ring connectors that form part of a larger 25-pin edge connector.
Robots are machines programmed by computers. Robots can be guided by an external control device. Most robots are machines designed to perform a task with no regard to their aesthetics. Robots can help us in many ways.
Types of robots
There are many types of robots and some of them are: 1. Mobile Robots 2. Industrial Robots 3. Educational Robots 4.Service Robots 5.Modular Robots and many more
What are the uses of robots?
Robots can be really useful to us. Robots are used in manufacturing, packing, transport, earth and space explorations, surgery, weaponry, laboratory research, industrial goods and many more.
Are robots harmful?
Robots are not usually harmful to humans. A robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm. A robot must obey the orders given by humans. But once a man was killed by a robot. A man name Robert Williams was the first man killed by a robot. He was an assembly worker at Ford’s Flat Rock plant in Michigan. He was crushed to death by the arm of a one-tonne robot on the production line on 25 January 1979. His family was awarded $10 million in damages.
Can robots replace humans?
Yes, robots will replace humans in some ways like doing jobs, soon in the future, the only one to do jobs will be robots. And there will be job loss, and many workers will have less economic value. But robots can not just totally replace humans because there are many things that humans can do but robots can not.
Can robots take over the world?
Robots could take over 20 million manufacturing jobs around the world by 2030. And many people believe that within the next 10 years there could be 14 million robots put to work in China. And the global will start increasing in the next 20 years because of the robots. But there is no way robots could take over the world.
Hope you got a lot of information about robots from my blog.
The first person who actually invented a programmable humanoid robot was al jazari in 1206. According to wikipedia, Ismail al jazari was an Arab Muslim scholar, inventor, and mechanical engineer during the islamic golden age (Middle Ages). He was a polymath. He was born on 26 friday 1136CE inUpper Mesopotamia turkey. He lived in mardin. Al jazari was not only called the ” Father of robotics” he also documented 50 mechanical inventions and was called the ” Father of modern engineering”. He served as the cheif engineer at the Artuku Palace, like his father before him. Despite his work traversing the ages, almost noting is know about his personal life. He is best known for writing the “Book of Knowledge of ingenious Mechanical Devices” in 1206, where he described fifty mechanical devices along with instructions on how to construct them. The inventions he mention in his book inculdes the connecting rod, programable automaton, humanoid robot, valve, camshaft, crank mechanism, reciprocating piston engine, suction pipe, suction pump, suction pump, combination lock, cam, segmental gear, the first mechanical clocks driven by water and weights, and especially the crankshaft, which is considered the most important mechanical invention in history after the wheel. Ismail al jazari was famous in engineering and craftman who was a master in automata and mechanical inventions. Not bad for a guy who lived 800 years ago!
