I am 15 and want to know is robotic engineering a prefereable job? I am very interested in physics so please suggest any other options.
I am 15 and I plan on going into the field of robotics, so my question is "where should I start?"
What is the definition of DOF? How many DOF can a robot have?
I have been working as a robot programmer for a System Integrator for 4 years. During that time: 4 years I work with ABB Robot, 1 year work with Motoman Robot and 1 year work with KUKA Robot. But next year my company will not use them any more because we will use a PC-based B&R controller to control a Comau Robot (will not use Robot Controller any more). So my impression is my job will not be needed anymore, and I'm wondering if this is true?
Im studying Mekatronic Engineering and had some questions about industrial robots concerning the environment. What parts of a used robot can be recycled and what parts cannot? Is there any hazardous waste left after recycling? How costly is the recycling process compared to the price of manufacturing new robots? Is there any pollution while the robot is in use? Does the increasing production of robots have any negative effect on the environment concerning the use of raw materials? Thank you very much for any answer.
I am working on a project for robotics in 4-H and my guestion is what type of metal is lite but strong? I am leaving my coach's contact information below.
Hi. I am doing my Master in the field of robotics. I am very much interested to become a robot integrator. I wish to know which is the right path to extend my interest to a career set as a Robot system integrator. I would like to know some training details on these. At present I am in Germany. Thanks in advance
I’m a secondary student from Mexico and I am interested in developing my career on artificial intelligence for robots and I would like to know what career is an appropriate one and what universities you can recommend to me. Thanks for your advice.
I've been trying to get in to a program for robotics and it seems like I'm too late... I'm 25 now and I was wondering if there arere any programs for me?
I'm doing a research paper on robotics and the future of robotics and I can't seem to find anyone to talk to about this subject. If you could answer this question for me in detail i would really appreciate it. If not, I understand that you are probably busy.. thanks either way.. My question is "Where do you think robotics is headed in the future (military, factory, medical field, and so on), and what do you think the effects will be on people all around the world?" Thanks again
I am doing my masters in Robotics (in Germany). I would like to carry out my job profile in the same field. I am more interested in Industrial Robots in particular. How about the scopes if I specialize in simulation softwares? I downloaded the trial version of Robotstudio and practicing it. I would like to learn DELMIA IGRIP or RobCAD or CIM if it has good scope. Please guide me... Thanks in Advance
I am a student at Columbia College Chicago. My area of study is Game Art, Computer Animation. I would like to know if there are any robotics associations/universities, etc. that offer tours of their facilities. I would prefer to have first hand knowledge of robotics design to view. I have exhausted the diagrams on the net and feel that in order to design exceptional 'battlebots' and cyborgs for games/films more working knowledge would only be beneficial. Thank you.
