Robo Technology was one of the hottest topics in the business world at the turn of the millennium. The idea of a robotic assistant or robot that was able to perform a wide variety of duties was a new one and had the potential to dramatically change the way the workplace was run. The question of course was, whether or not the system was actually safe for humans. Some of the issues faced by Robo Technology have been discussed before.
One of the biggest concerns regarding Robo technology is the possibility of the robotic assistant becoming confused with the humans. Although Robo Technology has been programmed to be self-aware, it is possible that one of the human workers could accidentally injure the machine. In order to avoid this, Robo Technology requires human supervision, but it is also possible that the human worker could be able to do a thorough enough job of programming the robot that the robot will not be confused. Even if the robot does not have a problem with confusion, there is always the possibility that one of the human workers could be confused and accidentally injure themselves.
Robo Technology has also been known to react badly to loud noises, especially if it is the type of noise that can cause it to go berserk. As with all robotic systems, it is important that there are no employees within a few feet of the robot. In addition, some of the Robo Technology robots are not as sophisticated as other models and as a result they may be unable to react to the environment as well as other models.
In addition, Robo Technology may experience the problems of parallel processing. This is the ability for the robot to think in several different directions at once. If the robot is not given enough time to process all of the information, it may have problems performing a task at the right time and therefore cause the system to act in a non-optimal way.
Although there have been some critics of Robo Technology, there are also some who are of the opinion that these fears are exaggerated. The fact that Robo Technology has been programmed to perform all of the necessary tasks required by the company and in addition, that the system is designed to perform at a level where humans do not have to perform a large portion of the tasks, makes it safer than most of the other systems out there. This means that the robot will be able to perform at a safe and appropriate level and will not be affected by non-human factors.
Robo Technology may have been a hot topic during the past couple of years, but the debate over its safety is definitely not over. However, there are now some well-developed technologies that are available to make the robot safe.
