Robotics employs knowledge from many different fields; as such, it is very much a multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary branch of science. Multidisciplinary because of the many skills in areas such as sensors, measurements, drives, signal processing, robot kinematics, dynamics and control, virtual environment, robot vision, information and computer technologies; and interdisciplinary because it involves the transfer of generic knowledge from one field to another. The study of robotics is designed in the same way. Robotics is not just limited to applications within various segments in production systems, but is today a key development focus in sectors ranging from medicine, servicing and maintenance, security to agriculture and environmental protection.
