Please change "A robot is a machine—especially one programmable by a computer— capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically." to "A robot is a repurposable, semi or fully autonomous electromechanical machine, that performs a useful economic function".

The definition of Robot should be "a repurposable electromechanical machine"; being designed to be re purposed is it's true differentiator. The term robota means forced labour. Labour is done by a labourer. A labourer is a human. Humans are repurposable. Pure robots are by design, repurposable. The term repurposable means "Capable of being turned to another purpose". Uni was the first industrial robot. The first robot to achieve widespread commercial success. It was also "capable of being turned to another purpose". Kurtnelle (talk) 13:28, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

  Not done: please provide reliable sources that support the change you want to be made. The definition in the article comes from the Oxford English Dictionary. ‑‑ElHef (Meep?) 14:00, 7 September 2018 (UTC)

In most Slavic languages the base word "robotets" (работать) means "to work", "rabota" (Работа) means "work"; "robotnik" (работник) means "laborer" (or worker)

Forced labor in Czech is "nucené práce"

We need to unforce this section — Preceding unsigned comment added by 66.96.79.217 (talk) 20:38, 25 February 2020 (UTC)

Literal modern translation of "Forced labor" to Czech is truly "Nucené/á práce". But in Čapek's time, "robota" still had a strong connotation from Feudalism where it was used for the labour that serfs were forced to do for their feudal landholder. Nowadays this might not be as obvious, but you can easily check it on the Wiki etymological site: https://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/robota -- Colombo 139.80.239.165 (talk) 00:49, 9 June 2020 (UTC)

Toy section neededEdit

Please add a 'Toy' section (like under 'Popular culture') where we can list popular toy robots. I'll never forget the Micronaut's Biotron I had in the '70s. There's a photo of one on Wikipedia's Micronaut page. fuck you

In the "mobile robots" section, a citation is needed: Mobile robots are also found in industry, military and security environments.[85] They also appear as consumer products, for entertainment or to perform certain tasks like vacuum cleaning. Mobile robots are the focus of a great deal of current research and almost every major university has one or more labs that focus on mobile robot research.[citation needed]

Maybe this book is suitable:

  Not done for now: Could you please point out a specific page or pages which support the material in the article? Thanks, RandomCanadian (talk / contribs) 00:13, 23 June 2020 (UTC)

Yes, Chapter 3, "Motion in Global Coordinates", of which PP 65-69 is a short survey on the research activities related to the various types of mobile robots.

For the next paragraph: "Mobile robots are usually used in tightly controlled environments such as on assembly lines because they have difficulty responding to unexpected interference. Because of this most humans rarely encounter robots. However domestic robots for cleaning and maintenance are increasingly common in and around homes in developed countries. Robots can also be found in military applications.[citation needed]", this citation may be included: [2]
