In today’s fast running competitive world, man has become so busy that various automatic machines, vehicles and other items are produced to cope with the busy schedule of our life. Automation & Robotics is the science of using control systems and new technologies which will reduce human efforts and manpower in every work process with less time consumption. In this Industrialization process going on in everywhere, automatic technology has taken over other terms of mechanization.

Question: What is the difference between automation and robotics?
Answer: The main difference between robotics and automation is that robots are a piece of equipment that can perform a variety of tasks with programming, while automation is a term that is used for special purpose machines or systems that are designed to perform a specific task.
Question: Are Artificial Intelligence(AI) and robots the same?
Answer: An AI is a computer program designed for tasks normally requiring human intelligence (a human's ability to learn), while a robot is a machine that completes complex tasks. An AI could be used to control a robot, but they are very different.
