SEQ CHAPTER \h \r 1 Robotics is the intelligent association of perception to action . This categorization opens the Proceedings of the First International Symposium on Robotics Research , edited by Brady and Paul (1984 . It is remarkable in that it distinguishes the field of robotics without enforcing to define the term robot itself it covers all the typical work with both mobile and assembly robots as well as a number of unusual limiting cases . It also suggests , as was the almost general view at the time but is now contentious , that intelligence perception , and action are somehow distinguishable into distinct functional components of the system

Home Robotics is a young field of study in which dreams proliferate perhaps , though , the most common of these , both inside the field and out , are that of the sovereign general-purpose robot , able to perform capably in a variety of situations without the need for reprogramming or wide-ranging supervision . This dream is of both commercial and scientific import : thriving , versatile , inexpensive robotic systems would have an incredible economic and social impact , making it possible to ease people of dangerous , physically demanding , or droning jobs (and of course , forming the problem of what those people would then do evenly , the construction of such a robot would give and need substantial insight into how the many diverse kinds of natural creatures are exclusively suited to their own ecological niches , by teaching us about the relationships between environment , agents , behavior , and tasks

One of the remarkable features of modern robotics , mainly in relation to autonomy , is a propensity to view the problem of constructing a capable autonomous robotic system as one of performance . A robot is self-sufficient when it is able to , and does , takes responsibility for the consequences of its own action while there is no interventionist rescuer offered to fix the problems it manages to form for itself . The robot is thus faced with a diversity of possible situations it might encounter and a collection of possible responses to those situations The dilemma of autonomy has to do , then , with choosing proper sensory and action patterns efficiently a question of the performance of the robot in reaction to the challenges offered by its environment

If this were the whole story , home robotic systems might in fact be raised in the near future . However , the rationality of the performance viewpoint covers up the essential difficulty with self-sufficient robotics : The robots are artifacts , and artifacts should be designed The central questions of designing a system competent of interacting...
