Analog and Digital
Robots use analog sensors for recognizing real-world objects and digital computers for their direction. Analog to digital converters convert temperature, motion, pressure, sound and images into binary code for the robot’s computer. The computer directs the physical actions of the arms and joints by pulsing their motors.
Computers Making Computers

Various techniques have emerged to develop the science of robotics and robots. One method is Evolutionary robotics, in which a number of differing robots are submitted to tests. Those which perform best are used as a model to create a subsequent “generation” of robots. Another method is Developmental robotics, which tracks changes and development within a single in the areas of problem-solving and other functions.
New functions and abilities
The Caterpillar Company is making a dump truck which can drive itself without any human operator.
Many future applications of robotics seem obvious to people, even though they are well beyond the capabilities of robots available at the time of the prediction. As early as 1982 people were confident that someday robots would: 1. clean parts by removing molding flash 2. spray paint automobiles with absolutely no human presence 3. pack things in boxes—for example, orient and nest chocolate candies in candy boxes 4. make electrical cable harness 5. load trucks with boxes—a packing problem 6. handle soft goods, such as garments and shoes 7. shear sheep 8. prosthesis 9. cook fast food and work in other service industries 10. household robot.
Generally such predictions are overly optimistic in timescale.

I don’t mean something like leonardo’s robot, where it was “programmable” but not computerized in any way, but I am interested to know what book, novel, short story, poem, limerick, or whatever contained the first references to a robot as we understand it today. Thanks.
I’m not asking where the phrase was coined, I’m asking where the first robot, as we understand robots, apeared. The robots from Capek were organic beings, like humans, they were not machines.
