The word robot first appeared in a 1921 stage play by Czech writer Karel Capek. In the play, a man makes a machine that can think, which he calls a robot & which ends up killing its owner. In the 1940s, the American science fiction writer Isaac Asimov wrote a series of stories about robots và invented the term robotics, the science of robots. Meanwhile, in the real world, the first robots were developed by an engineer, Joseph F. Engelberger, & an inventor, George C. Devol. Together they started Unimation, a manufacturing company that produces the first real robot in 1961, called the Unimate. Robots of this type were installed at a General Motors autoSmartphone plant and proved lớn be a success. They worked reliably và saved money for General Motors, so other companies were soon acquiring robots as well.
These industrial robots were nothing lượt thích the terrifying creatures that can often be seen in science fiction films. In fact, these robots looked & behaved nothing like humans. They were simply pieces of computer-controlled machinery, with metal “arms” or “hands”. Since they were made of metal, they could perkhung certain jobs that were difficult or dangerous for humans, particularly jobs that involve sầu high heat. And since robots were tireless và never got hungry, sleepy, or distracted, they were useful for tasks that would be tiring or boring for humans. Industrial robots have been improved over the years, và today they are used in many factories around the world. Though the use of robots has meant the loss of some jobs, at the same time other jobs have been created in the design, development, and production of the robots.
