The STEM of Robots
For thousands of years, humans have used machines to accomplish tasks more efficiently and often to complete tasks people simply can't do on their own. Now, modern technology allows inventors to design robots capable of amazing feats that used to seem unthinkable. This cool book examines how automation revolutionized the world in the 1940s and has grown and changed over time. Readers learn how cutting-edge factories use robots, and the latest information about self-driving cars and drones. They'll evaluate the problems that robots solve, like disaster cleanup and exploring uninhabitable areas in outer space. This book also looks at what's next in the field of robotics, including lifelike social robots and advanced machine learning.
