principles of other engineering branches like electrical engineering,
computer science engineering and mechanical engineering to play with robots that may resemble humans in
appearance or work. They are meant to do those tasks which humans cannot perform. It is believed to be one of the
most innovative fields where one can defy the logic of realism to create something extraordinary. Robotics is deeply
interconnected with other engineering branches.
This type of engineer is responsible for creating several different types of robots that are used to complete a variety
of different tasks. Prior to a robot being constructed, the engineer will have first researched and determined exactly
what the robot will be used for, and the manner in which it will accomplish its goal. For these professionals, the building
process will take a great deal of time. Robots are highly technical and difficult to create, and the task can be very tricky.
For this reason it's not uncommon for a robotics engineer to only work on a handful of projects throughout his or her
entire career. Professionals in this field need to be very patient.
The duties of Robotic Engineers typically includes to building, configuring, and testing robots, designing software
systems to control their robotic systems, such as those robots used for manufacturing. They are also engaged in
designing automated robotic systems that are used to increase the production and precision levels within a specific
industry and analyzing and evaluating the prototypes and robotic systems they have created. This is generally a neverending
task, since technology is constantly changing and advancing. They also reviewing and approving cost estimates
and design calculations for serving as technical support for the robotic systems they have created. They are also need
to teach plans paths to robots and performing research into the design, operation and performance of robotic
mechanism components or systems.
Robotics Engineers typically equally share their time between a lab and their office. Time in the lab is spent working
on small mechanical parts that are components of the larger robot they are creating. The time in their office is spent
working on plans and writing papers. For some projects, overtime work may be necessary to make sure that the job is
completed by a deadline. Occasional travel may also be necessary. The typical day-to-day duties are often mentally
draining and can sometimes be stressful. This is particularly true when strict deadlines are in place. Robots are also
find in these professionals working in the food packaging, appliance building, and electronic industries.
