Robotics & Nano Technology

Manufacturing facilities around the world are increasing adoption of industrial robots to increase automation and maintain competitiveness. In both the US and China particularly, application of industrial robots is on the rise. Sales of industrial robots grew by 66 percent in the past 5 years alone in the USA, according to the International Federation of Robots. During this period, US sales increased at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of almost 14 percent, despite a decline during the recent recession. The Robotic Industries Association (RIA) reported that the world market for industrial robots is driven primarily by demand from motor vehicle manufacturing, followed by the electronics industry.

The major foreign-owned industrial robot producers with US factories are from Japan (Fanuc, Kawasaki, Yaskawa-Motoman), Germany (Kuka), and Switzerland (ABB and Staubli). US manufacturers that design and produce industrial robots include Adept Technology, Genmark Automation, Rethink Robotics, and SAGE Automation. In addition to automotive robots, these companies produce robots for the electronics, medical, and logistics industries. Robots all have some kind of mechanical construction, a frame, form or shape designed to achieve a particular task. For example, a robot designed to travel across heavy dirt or mud, might use caterpillar tracks.

At the smallest scale, mechanical engineering becomes nanotechnology, one goal of which is to build molecules and materials via microsynthesis. Current areas of mechanical engineering research in nanotechnology include nanofilters, nanofilms, and nanostructures such as microtubules. At its most basic, nanotech relies on tailoring the structure of materials at an atomic or molecular scale, to achieve specific properties.

Using nanotechnology, new materials can be fabricated that are stronger, lighter, and better electrical conductors, among other properties. When particle sizes of solid matter in the visible scale are compared to what can be seen in a regular optical microscope, there is little difference in the properties of the particles. But when particles are created with dimensions of about 1 to 100 nanometers, the materials' properties change significantly from those at larger scales. This is the size scale where quantum effects rule behavior and physical properties.

Multiple Choice Tests - Free Practice!

This section offers practice tests in several subject areas. Each of the following multiple-choice tests has 10 questions to work on. No sign-up required, just straight to the test.


Electric Cars


The workings of a Tesla electric car is explained here through animation. The Tesla Model S recently became the world’s fastest-accelerating car. We will see how electric cars have achieved superior performance by analyzing the technology behind the induction motor, inverter, lithium ion battery power source, regenerative braking and the synchronized vehicle mechanism.

Respiratory System


The respiratory system is the network of organs and tissues that help you breathe. It includes your airways, lungs, and blood vessels. These parts work together to move oxygen throughout the body and eliminate waste gases including, but not limited to, carbon dioxide.

The Microsopic World


This year’s Nikon Small World Motion Photomicrography Competition has given us a fascinating glimpse into the realm of the extremely small. Watch a flea giving birth and a zebrafish embryo developing its complex nervous system.

Transistors


The invention and eventual miniaturization of transistors has revolutionized technology. This animation demonstrates the working of a Bipolar Junction Transistor (BJT) with it's practical application as a switch or diode. The video also covers the structure of a Silicon atom, doping, N-type doping, P-type doping, the working of NPN transistor and dual stage amplification.

Engineering Jobs

Mechanical engineers held about 308,800 jobs in 2021. The median annual wage for mechanical engineers was $84,190 in May 2021. The lowest 10 percent earned less than $54,420, and the highest 10 percent earned more than $131,350. Most mechanical engineers work full time, and about 3 in 10 worked more than 40 hours a week in 2021. Employment of mechanical engineers is projected to grow 9 percent from 2021 to 2026.

In the automotive industry in particular, mechanical engineers will play key roles in improving the range and performance of hybrid and electric cars. The fields of alternative energies and nanotechnology will also offer new opportunities for occupational growth. Mechanical engineers design production projects to harness developments in nanotechnology, which involves manipulating matter at the tiniest levels. Nanotechnology will result in improvements of technology in fields such as healthcare and in the design of more powerful computer chips.
