Today’s time is a world of technology and it is increasing day by day. We are surrounded by internet and digital world. We can’t imagine our daily life without the technology. Today a new technology has come and that is mobile robots. It made our work convenient and easy. It saves time and unnecessary cost.
We can say mobile robots are a type of machines that are capable of locomotion. It is a kind of robots that can move around to the environment and not connected to a physical location. These robots are autonomous i.e. they have the ability to navigate the uncontrolled environment without the need of any physical connections or electro mechanical guidance devices. They have the components like controller, control software, sensors and actuators, laser scanners for sensing the environment. They can be controlled by Bluetooth or any wireless networks. They are used for many reasons like security, maintenance, industrial purpose, medical field etc.
Mobile robots now have become the essential part of many commercial and industrial setting. Many hospitals use mobile robots to move material for many years. Many industrial industries like warehouses are using robots for shifting one place to another. Currently the mobile robots are the main focus of research in many institutes and almost every university that have one or more labs are focusing on mobile robots.
The application of the mobile robots is increasing for many reasons like:
- Robots are used for cleaning purpose. It improves quality and efficiency in various cleaning task.
- It is used for inspection and maintenance purpose.
- It is very useful in security and defense sectors.
- It improves efficiency in agricultural purposes. It saves time and energy.
- Robots have been using in chemical plants, oil and gas facilities.
- Robots are using in education also to enhance the quality of education and provide practical knowledge to the students.
Thus the application of the mobile robots is very important in various aspects as it encourages the country to become a digital world. It can be replaced with labor in industries and helpful in saving time and energy by getting the work done with greater speed and gives an outstanding output.
