We offer up a few suggestions. [ Team LiB ] [ Team LiB ] Bots in Legal Briefs In the previous chapter, we looked at the many branches on the family tree of robot evolution. We also profiled some of the pioneering scientists and technologists who are feverishly engineering that tree, each focused on a different branch. From these various schools of robotic thought have emerged a number of operating principles (such as looking to nature for inspiration, or using human competition to accelerate robotic innovation).

Category for any gadget geek or housework hater. edu 47 and gobbling up the food on your dinner dishes while they stay on the table (okay, that last one's kind of creepy). Next to Hoovering the house, the next domestic drag in need of robotic rescue is mowing the lawn. sophisticated chores are a long ways off. The gnarly problems of manipulators and end effectors (as we'll discuss in Chapter 4) come into play with these tasks. Vacuums and mowers are relatively straightforward by comparison. Like the robo-vac, we've been catching glimpses of robotic mowers for years now.

First fielded as a spy drone, Predators are now being used as remotely controlled warplanes, carrying laser-guided Hellfire missiles. S. and attack a target halfway around the world. We won't get into the chilling implications of this type of warfare here, but feel free to ruminate on your own. So far, most of the military robot development has been focused on extending the eyes and ears of soldiers through "man portable" machines that can scout ahead of a unit. One such robot type, called a throwbot, looks like a toilet-tank float.
