The science of robots and their design and application come under the topic of robotics. The robotic technology can be found in small toys as well in many electronic devices. Robots must possess the capability to be physically active while interacting with the environment. The principal element used in the automation of robots is their actuator. The actuator converts the stored energy to be used for various purposes like movement. Creating human like robots had ever been a fancy for human beings. Now the robotic technology has its application in many industries like the automobile industry and health care sector. Discussions are going on to employ robots in warfare to reduce the human casualties.
