They used this definition of Advanced Robotics. ” This is a very wide-ranging definition, but one of the key features is the “integration of technologies”. The aim of this integration of advanced technologies is to produce a device that can both operate autonomously and in an environment which may be unstructured and/or hostile. ” (Festo Didactic GmbH Co 1998). In many ways, mechatronics and robotics cover much of the same territory and it is the application of this level of technology to “the restoration of a person to an optimal level of physical, mental, and social function and well being”, that we are concerned with here.
