Modern technology has made it a point to make everything possible simplified for users and consumers. Those things that used to be done by hand are now done using automated machinery. This is found in just about every walk of life, from manufacturing plants to hospitals to residential homes. Everything has become “smart,” which means technology and devices that have the ability to communicate with each other through software. People are now using smartphones, smart TVs, smart watches, and even drive smart cars. In addition, there are other devices that have the smart label attached to them. In reality, these devices and the technologies behind them are robots.
Robots are seen everywhere. They perform laborious tasks in production plants. They deliver medicine to the rooms of patients in the hospitals. There are also robots for the home. These robots in the home also do various tasks that normally would be done by the homeowner or a hired servant. Now, these robots can be programmed to vacuum the carpets in the home. They are programmed to wash clothes, to a degree. They can even do chores outside the home, such as mowing the lawn.
As the robot technology continues to advance, entire homes can be run through robot technology. It is possible that, in the very near future, robots will be doing a lot of tasks, such as those seen in the popular movie I Robot with Will Smith. The robots will be programmed to do certain necessary functions in the household, such as ironing and folding clothes, by committing tasks to a memory source (software chip). Already, similar technology is being applied to smart cars that are currently being tested.
The idea of robots taking over the tasks in the household will likely increase as people seek to spend more time doing leisure things or being at work. There are many stores and websites offering various models of robots users can buy for their homes. Roomba and Intellibot are examples of two robots used to provide cleaning in homes, hospitals, office buildings, and other commercial buildings. People should continue to keep their eyes peeled for the advanced technology of home robots.
