An autonomous robot is a machine that is designed to do work on its own without any kind of human help. Robotics coupled with artificial intelligence is usually considered a great substitute for manual labour and, in the long run, this technology will result in great developments.
For instance, a fully automatic robot is capable of gathering information about the environment, working for long hours without human help, functioning effectively without human intervention, and avoiding any sort of damage or harm during its working. Isn’t this a great substitute for human efforts?
Another example of such an autonomous robot showed in the video is a pepper harvesting robot. The robot uses a camera to detect fruit ripe for the picking. It subsequently analyzes each individual piece to find the best way to pick it. The robot then grabs the fruit and drops it into a receptacle. Interestingly, the robot is expected to work 20 hours a day with human supervision.
Imagine how many man-hours can then be used effectively for other purposes?
