There are a lot of ways that robots can decide how to do what they do.
They might be able to do it with their own set of laser sensors, or they
might do it with a joystick. If you have not thought of it one of the
ways that a robot may be able to get around is with your thoughts. At
least it may be so in the near future. A team of French experts are
working with a team of robot makers at a Japanese robotics
institute to make thought controlled robots.
The bots, which are
currently only in lab development, don't have psychic powers. The
robots is able to detect the brain activity of the user by taking note
of changes in the blood flow of the users. The research, which was done
with some serious brain scans, allowed developers to create program that
can detect the activity. While there are no prototypes out, it could
have some applications for people with medical issues that impair
movement or fine motor skills.
