wat is the main difference b/w robotics and automation ??????
Robotics involve automation and automation is like doing a thing with lesser human intervention try WIKIPEDIA and google they will spit more quantums to you
so automation is mother of robotics????
A more precise way it is the predecessor of Robotics
one of the major differences between automation and robotics is whether the machine performs a single set of operations or if the sequence can be mixed up or changed for better efficiency. If the machine receives sensory feedback, then the machine can change sequences automatically for the best results. Some machines are able to learn from mistakes, or through constant exposure, while others will lack this ability. The level of movement also is different between automation and robotics, with one being faster and more complex.
Automation is a very generic term - which is basically about making the things work automatically. Robotics could broadly be called a 'sub-set' of automation, because robots 'automate' the things and continue to operate as long as you want.
Automation can be done in anything; using control systems, electronics, mechanics and so on. In computers - you can run scripts to perform a pre-defined set of functions and operations; which would be called as 'automation.
Robotics on the other hand is use of robots (the term used for mechanical robots) to automate the most common and repetitive tasks.
I hope this makes the things clearer. If you've doubts, feel free to ask below.
even in automation ..they are programmed in doin their repeated tasks......i don think in automation ...they don change their task
Both are possible based on the Input programs you have pal
As I am of this field, Automation and Robotics is same thing & A name of the course of Engineering
Robotics is a part of Automation. In the field of automation robots can be used as a master or a slave in doing the repeated tasks.
Automation is nothing but the game of IOs.
A robotic device or a robot can be controlled by automation system but the reverse is not true.
