1.2 ROBOTICS IN DIFFERENT FIELD
Welding: Considered as a hazardous undertaking for a human due to toxic gases outflows. The welding work is very troublesome for a man who is required to weld two funnels from various sides and points and to sit in a troublesome position for quite a while. It tends to be no picnic for ones physic and can cause medical issues for the laborer. The trouble for a human is to see every one of the sides of welded devices when he needs to weld around a pipe as he can just observe one side of the pipe.
Painting: has similar problem to welding due to the use of toxic chemical products. Below is an example picture 2.2 of a factory robot painting a car as it moves slowly along a conveyer.Assembly operation: When we assemble a chip we need to be very precise because of very fine wires which require very precise and accurate tasks which a human cannot handle but, on the other hand, is easy for a robot.
Consistent quality: at high standards can be achieved by a robot. A robot can easily be re- programmed many times to reach the highest possible quality which a human cannot often achieve.
Safety: is especially important when a robot handles chemicals, bio chemicals, toxic and nuclear products. They can be handled very safely and smoothly, saving humans from carrying out high risk, stress inducing work.
Robots can carefully handle fragile and tiny parts : such as glass, small chips and wires.
Inspection and maintenance tasks in dangerous areas: for example handling explosives, exploring the deep sea, space and other planets. One example is the shipwrecked Titanic. A robot was used to discover the ships content as it lay so deep under the ocean it was beyond human reach.
Space missions: to gather samples from other planets and to analyze them from remote distances.
1.3 ROBOTICS IN DIFFERENT INDUSTRIES:
Health care: hospitals, patient-care, surgery , research, etc.

3. IMPACT OF ROBOTICS
In the Mechanical Age that mankind has entered long time back with steam arrangement has caused to crude motorization underway. With the improvement of web and portable innovations, gadgets, Nano innovation, progresses in prescription, wellbeing and advanced applications et cetera accelerate mechatronics considers these days. Last World Financial Gathering holds a critical place on the motivation of Robotics and Artificial Intelligence and the market analysts like Robinin, Stiglitz additionally entered in the talk of robotics and artificial in intelligence impacts on financial matters and business.
3.1 IMPACT OF ROBOTICS ON ECONOMY
The effect of these emerging innovations on the workforce and the arrangement of medical advantages, benefits, and social protection. In the event that society needs less laborers because of automation and robotics, and numerous social advantages are conveyed through occupations, how are individuals outside the workforce for an extensive timeframe going to get human services and annuities? There are significant inquiries for open strategy dependent on emerging advances, the changing idea of the workforce, and the differential effect on different demographic groups. We have to reconfigure the social contract and make sense of how to convey social advantages in the new economy that is unfurling. 7
3.2 IMPACT OF ROBOTICS ON SOCIETY
Humans and technology go hand in hand. The discovery of fire, for example, has affected the history of mankind dramatically. Not only has it allowed humans to exercise more control over their living environment, it also functioned as a catalyst in the development of humanity. Inventions such as the eyeglass and the printing press had an enormous impact. The development of vaccines and antibiotics allowed humans to reduce mortality rates significantly from the late 18th century onwards. Fossil fuel use, electricity, the internet, the computer and many other robotics have improved efficiency and productivity in the past centuries. Further inventions must thus be considered when thinking about the future. Technology offers considerable advantages, but it also has the capacity to have a negative impact. Population growth would cause crises that will force us to develop technologies that harm our environment.
3.3 IMPACT OF ROBOTICS ON ENVIRONMENT
Current methodologies linked to all day occupations will be inadequate if business designs change and society needs less laborers to perform essential errands. We already have seen the effect of robotization on industrial occupations and are beginning to see its effect spread to desk employments. As PCs turned out to be more sophisticated, inventive, and versatile, more employments will be affected by technology and more positions made out of date. In this circumstance, there must be courses for individuals to get medicinal services, benefits, disability, and wage supplements outside of all day work. Offering a fundamental wage, patching up the earned pay assess credit, providing action represents lifetime education and retraining, expanding corporate benefit sharing, and providing advantage credits for commendable volunteerism speak to approaches to do this. Advanced economies need to determine approaches to avoid a perpetual underclass with limited money related prospects or work conceivable outcomes. There is developing relevance of artificial intelligence in numerous industries.
This and other automated instruments are no longer at the bleeding edge of new technology. Or maybe, robots, artificial intelligence, computerized calculations, versatile sensors, 3-D printing, and unmanned vehicles are here and changing human life. Individuals can decry these developments and stress over their “dehumanizing sway,” yet we need to determine how emerging advancements are influencing work and open approach.
The idea of a framework in which mechanical robots were connected to picking work, medium payload taking care of work, get together work, and so forth by joining IHI’s well deserved advancements, for example, propelled detecting innovation, control innovation, and mechanics innovation with modern robots, and has additionally presented the innovative work of such a framework. It is getting to be conceivable to apply mechanical robots to undertakings that can’t without much of a stretch be robotized and therefore depend vigorously on human specialists.
