Fewer still realize how--and how dramatically--technology influences our society and culture. Robotics is a reference guide that provides nonspecialists with the most up-to-date information on seminal developments in the technology of robotics, as well as covering the social, political, and technical impacts of those developments on everyday life, both now and in the future. Included in Robotics are chapters on: BL Profiles of Robot Technology Pioneers, Visionaries, and Advocates. BLHow robot technology works. BLImpact of Robotics on broader society. BL Controversial issues involving robotic technology. BL The future of robotic technology. The volume includes a chronology of the technology, a glossary, organizations involved in robotics, and a thorough list of sources for further research.
