RoboEvolution – An introduction to the field of robotics. What robots are! How they are made! And how they are controlled!


Speaker: Nwachukwu C. OBINNA, Mechatronics Engineering MSc Student at the University of Debrecen

Robots are here to stay, and stay they will. It is mankind’s responsibility to become accustomed with them. In recent years, there has been a great amount of advancements in the field of robotics. Researchers as well as developers have been able to build sophisticated robots, which are optimally precise, accurate, and able to perform complex tasks. Robots are on the verge of becoming an integral member of human civilization. Such an era would require basic knowledge of programming, electronics, and other topics that the field of robotics embodies, as a necessity.
