Automation and Robotics engineering is a field of engineering that deals with the design and creation of robots. They use computers to manipulate and process robotic actions. These robots are then used in:
Automated and Robotics engineers make use of knowledge from computer engineering, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, biological mechanics, software engineering. But this is not all. They also use control systems and information technologies to reduce the need for human labour in factories, offices and at home. Automation and Robotics engineering has indeed been crucial to the development of humanity and certainly, this will come with great responsibilities.
A robot has four parts; the electrical, the mechanical, the hardware and the software. These parts, originally, may seem different. However, as an Automated Robotics Engineer, you will regularly need to make use of all engineering fields when working. Still, the software aspect serves as the glue that holds others together. Here are some basic tasks:
Designing: As an Automation and Robotics Engineer, you will design plans which serve as guides in manufacturing robots and machines. You will design vital mechanisms that make robots run smoothly. For instance, you are responsible for creating software systems controls that are used in manufacturing. Equally, you will design robotic systems that are used to increase production and precision levels in some industries.
Building: A second common responsibility is assembling the machines. Although you may have to do this where there is no separate assembling unit available. It is where you will watch your designs and constructions come to life.
