Laboratory Robots
Laboratory RobotsLaboratory robots take many shapes and do many things. They are the beginnings of more sophisticated devices. They have microcomputer brains, multijointed arms, or advanced vision or tactile senses. Some have good hand-eye coordination and will eventually be used in industry to become more productive. Some may be mobile, and others may be stationary (Figure 2-2).
