Careers in Robotics
Robots have become more common than most people think. The automated vacuum cleaner that operates by itself is a robot. So are the mechanical miniature cats, dogs, and humans sold as toys. Many industries such as the automotive industry employ robots in the manufacture and distribution of goods. Robots also serve as stand-ins for humans in such dangerous activities as flying in surveillance aircraft, space and deep sea exploration, handling explosives for police bomb squads, and mining. Careers in Robotics clearly and specifically lays out the path to follow towards an exciting and rewarding career in this expanding field that truly is at the cutting edge of both technology and culture.
