That’s the difference between how a “low information” person and someone that’s informed looks at “robots”.
A “robot” is a machine. It moves as it is programmed to do.
It is not some anthropomorphized metal human.
A machine with complex servo systems runs a parent or master servo motor, by which all other motors must home to or coordinate their counted positions off of. The whole shabang has to be then processed with a very high speed processor and servo control. The most common today are the Allen Bradley RS logix 5000 and their Kinetix drives. In the past, systems were proprietary to the robot manufacturers and not real end user friendly to make any changes without enormous costs. Now, anyone in house can do it. That means jobs!!!!
Well, all I know is that according to king hussein there aren’t any bank tellers or travel agents anymore cause they done been robotized.
