The word "robot" is derived from the Czech word robota meaning work. The
idea of robots as humanoid machines was first introduced in Karel Capek's
1921 play "R.U.R.," where the playwright conceived Rossum's Universal
Sci-fi writer Isaac Asimov made robots famous, beginning with his story I,
Robot (1950) and continuing through a string of books known as the Robot
Series. Asimov presented the idea of "The Three Laws of Robotics", which
1. A robot may not injure a human being, or, through inaction, allow a human
being to come to harm.
2. A robot must obey the orders given it by human beings except where such
orders would conflict with the First Law.
3. A robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does
not conflict with the First or Second Law.
Introduction to How Robots Work
On the most basic level, human beings are made up of five major components:
A body structure
A <http://health.howstuffworks.com/muscle.htm> muscle system to move the
A sensory system that receives information about the body and the
A power source to activate the muscles and sensors
A <http://health.howstuffworks.com/brain.htm> brain system that processes
sensory information and tells the muscles what to do
(brain system is damaged = robots can't work without brain system. But our
AAA-Robots are ART-objects!)
