Role of Robots in Education & Business Application
The humanoids i.e. human lookalike robots can play an integral role in the field of education & various business applications. Present Technical institutions viz schools, colleges, institutes etc. which are still following the conventional methodology like the blackboard. Technology etc. could shift to better unconventional techniques like smart boards, tabs etc. which make the lectures and lessons more interactive and fruitful.
What are DIY kits?
In place of using theoretical concepts, one should use DIY (Do It Yourself) kits to educate the students.
DIY kits make the concepts easy to digest. The thoughts are not required to cram the concepts and the principles. They can perceivethe difficult concepts in a simplified way.
An English institute if equipped with language lab apparatus viztransmitters and receivers for two way communication is likely to have an edge over a conventional one using the blackboard methodology. The audio-visual aids are proving to be boon in education and various BusinessApplications. The existing computer institutes can easily diversifyInto robotics institutes without undergoing major revamps.
Thoughts required to venture into technology based endeavours
An institute or a corporate office having an impressive receptioncan be spell bound. One can have an everlasting effect on the visitors by use of some technical devices. A receptionist with excellent communication skills can impress the visitors but the usage of a humanoid would project the company in high strides. These are very significant measures to putthe institute/company in limelight. The humanoid greeting the visitors and offering them water is sure to impress them.
The humanoid can be asked to give the information of the company/institute as per the information fed in it. It will utter the information as per the programming done.
The humanoid if fixed with high resolution camera can even detect an unauthorised person thus aiding in the security too.
In case of any presence of fire/gas leakage/ weapon,It can send a warning signal. If equipped with required sensors, it can help us in scientific applications as well. It can detect the presence of liquid, alcohol, chemical etc.
How Humanoids can be made reservoirs of knowledge database.
- These can be fed with lessons and questionnaire of prominentInstructors/Professors. These can be shifted to the schools/colleges in the remote areas where it is arduous to find out the right and learned faculty. These could be the best off line mentors where there is no internet facility.
- These could be programmed in any language according to the region. These can prove to be a boon in the hospitals as well.These can be useful in the wake up calls and giving the medicineto the patients at specified intervals. Above all, the patients could use them for recreation and entertainment etc. also.
- In financial sector like banks etc. the robots can be used for directing the customers for different kind of accounts.
A humanoid is typically made of microcontrollers, sensors, different kinds of stepper/servo motors, display units etc. wired with cables. The persons with some programming background can make different type of Robots according to the desired application. These can be very useful in theQuality control in production as well.
A robot on wheels with proper sensors could be a boon foran agriculturist. It could help in ploughing the fields, thus minimising the usage of animals, fuel based tractors etc.
Let us embrace the humanoids as these are going to be like cream of the crop. Our country is bound to progressimmensely in the economic growth. We would become strongin the defence sector as well by using Robotic Missiles and explosives etc.
