How did this Machine was Designed? In the early development of robotics is not actually originate from Electronic science disciplines, but from the fields of biology and novelist for a drama in the 18th century. The Biology scientists at that time wanted to create a creature that has the characteristics as they want and obey what they command.

Robot Development

And until now they have created beings never materialized into real, but the format of the subject of novels and dramatizations stage and film. And then in the 19th century robot was developed by the Engineers, in that time with mechanical expertise armed to make their mechanical clock then them making a doll with an artificial human being can move on its part.
In 1920 the robots began to evolve from the disciplines of electronics, more specifically in the electronics branch of study disciplines, namely; Automatic Control Engineering, but in those days it was a computer that is a major component in a robot used to refineries input data from sensors and control actuators yet has a fast computing capabilities, in addition to the physical size of the computer at that time was still quite large.

Artificial Intelligence

Intelligent robots began to grow rapidly as the development of computers in the 1950's. With the increasingly rapid capability and smaller physical size computing, robots are made increasingly have good enough intelligence to do the work normally done by humans. At the beginning made, just count the computer as a tool, the development of algorithms to make computer programming as instrumentation that has the ability like human brain. Artificial intelligence is a program that makes a computer algorithm has the intelligence of a human being capable of reasoning, conclusions and decisions based on their experience.

The Japanese Robotics History

When a robot is considered to be triggered or bring conflict in Western countries, because of the possibility they could replace humans in the future or will generate false emotion, and the Japanese people in general show enthusiasm for all types of robots.
Some **“manga” and **“anime” like Astroboy may have the most important contribution in the formation of a positive perspective of Japanese society toward the robot. Embryo of robots in Japan has existed since the Edo period (1603-1867) is a mechanical doll known as "Karakuri Ningyo". The robot starts really developed in Japan since 1973, by Professor Ichiro Kato from Waseda University.
**Meaning of the terms:
What is a "Manga" and an "Anime"?

  • "Manga" is the term for the Japanese comic books, whereas,-
  • The "Anime" designation for Japanese animation.

What is it that distinguishes "Anime" and "Manga"?

  • "Manga" image does not motion and has no colors or it is black and white only.
  • While Anime is the motion pictures and has of many colors.

The Ochanomizu Professor

Professor Ichiro Kato, the leader of the first humanoid robotics research at Waseda and most celebrated roboticist in Japanese history. Kato’s background was in medicine – before devoting himself to creating a robot in the image of a human, his early studies focused on medical engineering. He was highly celebrated for his forward thinking.

    “The emphasis in my laboratory has always been on developing robotics with a target 20 to 30 years hence in mind,” writes Kato in a Waseda publication of the lab’s history.

Sometimes called “Professor Ochanomizu” in jest by his colleagues, many revered him as somewhat of an artist of the human form within the field of robotics. As a dean at the Waseda School of Science and Engineering and the Chairman of the Robotics Society of Japan, he made the university an epicenter of the field during the 1970’s. Beginning with the Waseda Bipedal Humanoid (WABIAN) Project in 1970, Kato described the efforts of his team as a work in “biomechatronics,” an interdisciplinary science aimed at replicating the organic functions of animals with machines. Yet, as Kato stated in a 1988 interview,

    “My research is not just in function, but in shape. In thirty years, in the twenty-first century, I think that human form will be essential in robots. In factories, which are for work, robots can be of any shape, but the personal robot…will have to exist in a regular human environment and be able to adjust to humans.”

Based on above results, Waseda University established the Humanoid Robotics Institute in April 2000 to promote research activities which aim to construct a new relationship between humans and machines in the advanced information society. Essentially, it is expected that a robot will provide assistance in housework, for aged people and for entertainment to keep up the amenity of life and human environment in the next century.
