More about Mobile Robotics

Robots play an increasing role in our lives and places of work in areas as diverse as manufacturing, agriculture, aerospace, mining, and medicine.

Mobile robots begin with a design and then a prototype which must be programmed and tested to make sure it offers a high and consistent level of performance.

The mobile robotics engineer must be familiar with logic, microprocessors, and computer programming and prepare specifications for the robot's capabilities as they relate to the work environment. They are also responsible for cost efficient design, cost-price calculations, and quality control.
