Robotics has evolved remarkably over the years with a great societal impact. Advancements in research and development have made robots capable of performing complex tasks in a more efficient and reliable manner than their predecessors, a generation of primitive robots that were merely designed for menial and repetitive tasks. Robotic systems have been utilized successfully in many applications. Some can operate autonomously in accomplishing complex missions while being aware of their surroundings.
