  2. It is a fact that we human capabilities Can't compare to robots, but robotic skills are growing rapidly.
  3. Robots are more preciseas humans: They don't tremble like human hands. Robots have smaller and versatile moving parts that are useful for tasks with greater accuracy.
  4. There is no doubt that robots clearly strongerandmore quickly are as people.
  5. Robots come in every shape and size, depending on the needs of the task.
  6. Robots can be anywhere and under all environmental conditions work, be it in space, underwater, in extreme heat or wind. And they can be used wherever human safety is at risk.
  7. Robots are programmed by a human; they cannot say no to anything and for everyone dangerous and unpleasant work can be used. For example, many robotic probes were sent into space but never returned.
  8. Robots in warfare save more life and have since proven to be very successful.
  9. Robots are used today in the chemical industry and can, for example, fight chemical accidents in a nuclear power plant, which is a big one Health risk represent.
