Robot Classification by Application


Robots can be classified by components such as their type of locomotion or kinematics.  This approach works very well when only industrial robots are being classified.  As robots have become more ubiquitous and complex this component centered system of classification has become less relevant to the general study of robotics.  This lesson will focus on classifying robots by their application. 

Objectives

1) The student will be able to classify robots by application.
