ABOUT US

We at IIR train students on latest technologies in the field of robotics and automation. We believe in practical training on real world applications like Embedded Systems, Automation, PLC, SCADA, HMI, INDUSTRIAL ROBOTS, EBOP etc. used in the industries around the globe. IIR also trains its students in Animation technology called as ANIMATRONICS IIR provides exhaustive industrial training in top companies like ABB ROBOTICS, JN ROBOTICS, WTP, RANK ROBOTICS etc. to name a few.

WHAT IS A ROBOT?

Robot Defined
Word robot was coined by a Czech novelist Karel Capek in a 1920 play titled Rossums Universal Robots (RUR)
Robota in Czech is a word for worker or servant

Definition

of robot:

Karel Capek

robot is a reprogrammable, multifunctional manipulator designed to move material, parts, tools or specialized devices through variable programmed motions for the performance of a variety of tasks: Robot Institute of America, 1979

Laws of Robotics
Asimov proposed three Laws of

Robotics

Law 1: A robot may not injure a

human being or through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with a higher order law

Law 2: A robot must obey orders

Law 3: A robot must protect its

own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with a higher order law

IS THIS?

OR THIS?

OR THIS?

OR EVEN THIS?

IIIrd LAW
A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with a higher order law

THEN WHAT IS THIS?

SHOULD WE CALL THIS A ROBOT?

THEN WHAT IS A ROBOT


A ROBOT IS ANY MACHINE THAT WORKS UPON THE COMMANDS GIVEN TO IT OR STORED IN THE MINDS OF THE SAME. Eg : A washing machine A fan An electric train An Airplane An Android Or even a Terminator Robot (Arnold Schwarzeneger).

Industrial robots

ROBOTICS & AUTOMATION


One of the fastest growing industry in the world.

Will reach by $602bn by 2020.


Robotics professionals are in high demand in the automation industries.

Production, inventory, medical, defense, logistics etc.


Animation and film making

Electronics, mechanical, computers, civil etc. all need automatic control and manual robotic automation operations.

TYPES OF ROBOTS
Wired Remote control Wireless Remote Control (RC Control) Computer Control Speech Control (Speech Recognition) Internet Control Autonomous Robots

History of Robotics
The

first industrial robot: UNIMATE 1954: The first programmable robot is designed by George Devol, who coins the term Universal Automation. He later shortens this to Unimation, which becomes the name of the first robot company (1962).

1978:
The Puma

(Programmable Universal Machine for Assembly) robot is developed by Unimation with a General Motors design support

1980s: The robot industry enters a phase of rapid growth. Many institutions

introduce programs and courses in robotics. Robotics courses are spread across mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer science departments.

Cognex In-Sight

Barrett Technology Manipulator

1995-present: Emerging

applications in small robotics and mobile robots drive a second growth of start-up companies and research

2003: NASAs Mars Exploration Rovers launched toward Mars in search of answers about the history of water on Mars

JOBS IN ROBOTICS
Ever consider the Future of Robotics?

What will it really be like?


Did Science Fiction get it right, if not how close were they? Will robots be everywhere and involved in every aspect of

life? Will robots eventually take over all the modern Factories; will robots be making robots too? Which sectors will we see robots excel in? Will we see more?

Robots in Commerce Retail, Services, Fields, Robots in the home Maids, Washing Car, Doing Chores, Mowing

the Lawn, Robots in Security Guards, Guard Dogs, Bomb Sniffers, Bomb Squads, Robots to the Rescue FEMA, Earthquake, Hurricanes, Wild Fires Robots for the Weather and Environment Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Robots in Transportation Light Rail, Cars, Aircraft Robots in Distribution Trains, Warehouses Robotic Androids Assistants, Mentors, Educators Robots and Artificial Intelligence Thinking Machines and Systems Robots in the Military Smart Munitions, Net-Centric Systems, UAVs

ROBOTICS IS A FIELD WHERE YOU CAN APPLY YOUR KNOWLEDGEOF PHYSICS, MATHEMATICS, DESIGNS, ELECTRONICS, PROGRAMMING SKILLS,MECHANICAL SKILLS etc. THIS FIELD IS THE ONE WHERE YOUR KNOWLEDGE IS PUT TO TEST
