Can robots help humans...

Robot Robonaut

Science: Engineers on Earth have created many different robots, but robonaut from NASA and GM is really special

Conservation education online with robots? Science life in space, conservation of natural resources. NASA robonaut helping astronauts, shaking hands with astronaut, taking repeated tasks, robots are used for a long time, robonaut is the most advanced robot
Robonaut 2
R2 is at the ISS International Space Station and has reported to duty to help the astronauts.
In the current iteration of Robonaut, Robonaut 2 or R2, NASA and General Motors are working together to accelerate development of the next generation of robots and related technologies for use in the automotive and aerospace industries. The team is focusing on improving the speed, dexterity, and workspace of Robonaut. Robonaut is about improving the efficiency of missions. The dexterity of R2 allows it to use the same tools that astronauts currently use and removes the need for specialized tools just for robots.
One advantage is that Robonaut 2 can take over simple, repetitive, or especially dangerous tasks on places such as the International Space Station. Because R2 is approaching human dexterity, tasks such as changing out an air filter can be performed without modifications to the existing design. robonaut is helping astronauts with their work
The international Space Center has gotten its first robot in humanoid form from NASA + GM. Robonaut 2 = R2 lives now on the Space Shuttle Discovery on a one-way ride. Robonaut is a $2.7 million mechanical and electrical master piece. NASA hopes that R2, later maybe R3 can assist the astronaut with their daily work.

R2 has brought one set of tools for the precursor mission, such as setup and geologic investigation. Not only does this improve efficiency in the types of tools, but also removes the need for specialized robotic connectors. Future missions could then supply a new set of tools and use the existing tools already on location.

space is not very easy to handle by humans. A functioning space suit is the barrier between life and death. Robonaut can help to minimize the risk for astronauts
Robots can be placed into several classifications based on the type of job they do. One category includes tasks which a robot can do better than a human. Imagine that today, robots can increase productivity, accuracy, and endurance. And in another category, robots do dirty, dangerous or dull jobs to replace human labor with robotics.
And still another category allows robots to perform tasks that make humans virtual participants in events that would normally require excessive travel. Medical situations allow doctors to be ďvirtuallyĒ present during exams and even surgery because of certain types of robots.
A 500-pound = 225kg robot can follow a stroke patient down a hospital hallway and catches him when he falls.
A medical robot helps a wounded patient over a treadmill and teaches her legs how to walk again.
And many robotic virtual reality games helping patients with illnesses as Parkinson's or Alzheimer.
These are a few of the new medical tools or rehabilitation robots.

There are an estimated 4,000,000 service robots in use today, and over 1.000,000 industrial robots, with roughly half in Asia, 32% in Europe, 16% in North America, 1% in Australia and 1% in Africa.

While robots have been incorporated into many facets of manufacturing, fabrication, farming, their potential is almost limitless. Robots can be designed to perform specific functions or a myriad of tasks depending on the need. Robots can be designed to be self powered and autonomous, performing tasks in environments where it may be too dangerous for humans.

robots with a good nature education program can serve us 24 hours a day, keeping our gardens, cultivated nature in perfect shape
Or we can use robots for sustainable, organic agriculture
Imagine a garden helper that works 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, and just needs an oil change (just kidding) or not?
Robots with embedded intelligence can handle large-scale heterogeneous plant populations without depleting the soil of specific nutrients, without the use of pesticides. Robots water on-demand and can drastically reduce water consumption.

Robot gardener can cultivate fruits and vegetables inside of buildings, contributing to a better room climate, less air conditioning use, better energy efficiency of the building, supporting the inhabitants diet.

robots as soldiers, helping humans to fight a war - is that our future? Military Services: Military robots are some of the most high-tech and important robots used today. These state-of-the-art machines save lives by performing extremely dangerous tasks without endangering humans. Some common robots used by the military are Explosive Ordinance Disposal (EOD) robots, which are capable of examining suspicious packages and surrounding areas to find and even deactivate improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and mines. They can even deliver unexploded ordinance for examination and proper detonation. The military also uses unmanned aerial vehicles for reconnaissance missions, to scope out enemy movements, find hidden explosives and give the Air Force a wide-angle surveillance of their battlespace.
Underwater Exploration: Underwater robots have radically changed the way we see the world from the ocean floor. Underwater robots can dive longer and deeper than any human, and they provide an up-close look at marine life. These amazing machines are equipped with sensors, high-definition cameras, wheels and other technology to assist scientists when they explore docks, ocean floors, dams, ship bellies and other surfaces. The most common underwater robots used today are the remote-operated vehicles (ROVs) that are controlled by humans sitting in the command center. ROVs are connected by cable to ships and are the best tool for gathering data and images of life under water. Duct Cleaning: Duct cleaning is done best by a robot that can actually fit into these hazardous and tight spaces. Robots provide a more effective and efficient cleaning than manual brushes. Itís also safer for industrial and institutional markets to use robots because workers are not exposed to harmful chemicals or enzymes that come from dust mites. Duct cleaning robots are used in hospitals and government buildings that may have hazardous or contaminated environments, as well as embassies and prisons for a shorter and more secure cleaning. Using duct cleaning robots translates to quicker, safer, cheaper and more effective duct cleanings without the need of a human. Fight Crime: Police robots help fight crime without risking the lives of police officers. Law enforcement officers use an array of high-tech and remote-controlled robots that are equipped with front and back cameras, infrared lighting and a speaker to search for criminals and find their location without endangering a police officer. State-of-the-art tools like the Robotex robot is waterproof, can climb stairs and flip itself over and has a 360-degree camera to help catch criminals. Other equipment, such as the Andros F6-A, are used by police agencies during hostage situations. This heavy-duty robot is capable of shooting off a water cannon or weapon in order to detain a criminal and protect those who are in danger. Fix Oil Spills: As we saw in the 2010 BP oil spill, robots play a critical role in fixing oil spills. Underwater robots are used to explore the well site and interact with the problematic equipment. Engineers use remote-operated vehicles that dive to great depths and stay submerged for much longer than any human ever could. ROVs are remote-controlled submarines that are operated by humans sitting in the command center. These high-tech robots are connected by cable to ships and are used to collect video footage and information from fiber-optic sensors that help engineers better understand the problem and intervene when necessary. ROVs have hydraulic arms with interchangeable tools, such as saws and cutters, which are used for intervention tasks. Even after the well is capped, robots are used to patrol the well site and make sure oil is no longer escaping. Investigating Hazardous Environments: Robots have become increasingly important for investigating and researching hazardous and dangerous environments. These robots are capable of entering an active volcano to collect data or a burning building to search for victims. Robots such as the Scout Throwable Robot are used by law enforcement agencies and fire departments to help find information about people stuck inside a building, and even have the ability to detect grenades or explosives in the area. These unmanned robots also save lives because they prevent people from having to enter the hazardous environment before they knowing what to expect. Commercialized Agriculture: Farming has been performed by man since the beginning of time, but throughout the years robots have been introduced to the world of commercial agriculture. Like manufacturing jobs, robots have the ability to work faster, longer and more efficiently than humans in agriculture. Robots remove the human factor from this labor intensive and difficult work. They can be taught to navigate through farmland and harvest crops on their own. Robots can also be used for horticulture needs, such as pruning, weeding, spraying pesticide and monitoring the growth of plants.
Or will science fiction become reality and we will use robots to fight our wars?

Car Production: Robots are used in the automobile industry to assist in building cars. These high-powered machines have mechanical arms with tools, wheels and sensors that make them ideal for assembly line jobs. Not only do robots save more money in manufacturing costs, but they also perform tough tasks at a pace no human could possibly do. Robots also make car manufacturing safer because they can take on dangerous and difficult jobs in place of humans. Automotive industry robots are capable of performing a wide range of tasks such as installation, painting and welding, and arenít restricted by fatigue or health risks, therefore making them an incredibly useful and irreplaceable part of car production.
Space Exploration: One of the most amazing areas of robotics is the use of robots in space. These state-of-the-art machines give astronauts the chance to explore space in the most mind-boggling ways. The most commonly used space robots are the Remotely Operated Vehicle (ROV) and the Remote Manipulator System (RMS), which are both used in a variety of space missions. ROVs can be unmanned spacecraft that orbit freely or land when it makes contact with an outer space surface and explore the terrain. Both capture remarkable data and visual footage that would never be humanly possible without the assistance of robots. RMS mechanical arms also help astronauts perform very important and difficult tasks during space missions Today many car manufacturers use robots to produce cars.

Therefore it is important to be well educated and develop skills and abilities robots don't have!
