Robots still rely on human inputs
ROBOTS, looking as we usually imagine them or see in movies – androids or other humanlike robots – still are on their way to a wide use in our business and private life. For now, they are mostly engaged in promotion and entertainment at public events and conferences. Needless to say, they get the wow effect, but still are of little use to business.
Nevertheless, developers managed to delegate some tasks to machines, such as security, control, and medical services. In practice, robots essentially automate jobs that people do and conduct many functions which would typically be performed by people.
These are free-standing terminals or devices powered by certain software and imitating people’s actions.
One of the most remarkable achievements here is health check terminals automating pre-shift, pre-trip and other medical examinations. These devices test blood pressure, stress level, alcohol or other intoxication, as well as blood oxygen level, which makes them desirable at large and advanced manufacturing enterprises where many people pass through entry checkpoints, with only one medical officer being there to check their health before hard and dangerous work. Each medical examination takes a few seconds at best, and to err is human, so slips happen all the time.
