SHOW ME SCIENCE - TECHNOLOGY: ROBOTICS - CHALLENGES FOR THE FUTURE

New innovations in robotics are presented while highlighting two very unique and effective robotics challenges. For elementary school students, the KISS Institute for Practical Robotics uses hands-on robotics programs to communicate the excitement, knowledge and practical understanding of science. The DARPA Robotics Challenge is a competition of robot systems and software teams representing some of the most advanced robotics research and development organizations in the world. The robots must complete a series of challenging tasks selected for their relevance to disaster response. The importance of robotics to human safety and exploration is discussed.

INSIDE A FACTORY: HOW THEY MAKE THE JAGUAR

Jaguar is a world-famous name for quality cars for the rich and famous. This film takes us inside the famous Castle Bromwich factory in the West Midlands, UK, to see how they make one íV in this case, the Jaguar XJ.

PRESS SHOP: First stage is pressing the various body panels out of the metal "blanks". Aluminium is used, for lightness and strength.

BODY IN WHITE: Next, the parts are put together in the Body In White shop, using robots and skilled manpower, resulting in completed shells for the XJ coming off the line, one every 4.1 minutes.

PAINT, FINAL TRIM & ASSEMBLY: The shells are painted, then go to "Final Trim" to be made into completed cars, each customised to particular orders. Each car has a bar code number that contains all its unique features and destination. Quality Control is also a vital element, through the whole process and at final checking stage.

JAGUAR: A VERY BRITISH COMPANY? Jaguar is "Made In Britain", part of Jaguar Land Rover, but the company is owned by Indian car makers Tata. Its biggest market is China, where Jaguars are the status symbol for the new moneyed classes. Jaguar sales are on the rise, providing more UK jobs, proving it's possible to thrive, even in a recession.

J, ROBOT: JAPANESE DESIGNERS PUSH THE BOUNDARIES OF HUMANOID A.I.

January 17, 1995: a massive earthquake hits Kobe, Japan, trapping thousands in collapsed buildings. Conventional search-and-rescue operations prove inadequate, and in the months and years that follow, a new wave of research and development in automated crisis-response technology occurs. But the robotics craze that sweeps Japan as it enters the 21st century springs from more than just the tragic quake. It also reflects the rich culture of manga comics and Japanese science fiction and the pride the Asian nation has taken for decades in creating and building high-tech products. This film explores how and why Japan has become a leaderíXperhaps the world leaderíXin humanoid robot technology. Viewers learn about ROBO-ONE, an annual event that is both a design competition and a gladiatorial showdown; the HRP Project, an ongoing robotics study completely supported by Japan's Ministry of Economy, Trade, and Industry; and the incorporation of robots into daily Japanese life, from customer service to mall security.

SHOW ME SCIENCE ADVANCED - ROBOTICS: ADVANCES IN ENGINEERING

Almost fifty years ago the first industrial robot was "employed" in an automobile assembly plant. Robots are regularly used for hazardous, super-heavy and difficult tasks in manufacturing, agriculture, entertainment, medicine, and space exploration. Welding robots with touch sensing and seam tracking abilities increase assembly plant efficiency, while robotic surgery results in less pain, quicker recovery and shorter hospital stays. NASA's robotic rovers Spirit and Opportunity are mapping the terrain and searching for evidence of water on Mars. Honda Motor Company's humanoid robot, ASIMO, can walk, run, recognize people and identify sounds and voices.

SHOW ME SCIENCE - TECHNOLOGY: ENGINEERING - DUMMY & ROBOT HEROES

As human stand-ins, dummies and their mobile counterparts, robots have been sparing us risk to life and limb and saving our lives for decades. Perhaps the best known examples of these are crash test dummies, which have allowed automotive engineers to analyze what happens to the human body in collisions. The information obtained in these tests has helped them design safety advances like seat belts, child car seats, air bags and cars that absorb the greater energy of a crash impact. This program shows the growing sophistication of dummies and robots as well as their use in many fields of product and safety testing, disaster and rescue training, manufacturing and hazardous materials handling. Includes suggestions for careers in this field of study.

Terms Covered In This Edition Include:
Aerospace, Core Temperature, CPR, Passive, Simulates, Sensors

SYSTEMS IN A FACTORY: FROM CAD-CAM TO ROBOTS

This film looks at the key systems used in a factory, using two case studies: the Glaxo Smith Kline toothpaste factory and a smaller plastic injection moulding company called Time RPS. How do they compare?

Types of production: (Mis an example of continuous flow production: they make a million tubes of toothpaste a day. Time RPS mostly does lower volume, batch production.

CAD/CAM: We show one product from design stage on the CAD screen through to final production. We explain how computer aided design feeds through to computer aided manufacture.

Stock control and production planning: We look at the importance of ordering the right amounts of raw materials to fulfill orders: at 6SK, this is achieved by two key systems: materials requirement planning and scheduling.

Production and quality control systems: Quality is an essential factor in both factories. We look at individual quality systems and the overall role of ISO 9000.

Robotic control systems: What work do robots do? How are they controlled? What are the benefits? We use examples from both factories.

But what's it all for? Cleanliness and efficiency INSIDE the factory is one thing. What about pollution caused by transportation? How useful are the products anyway?

BUSINESS DYNAMICS - MANAGEMENT: ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION

Genesis Systems Group was contracted by American Axle & Manufacturing to engineer, design, and build a new robotic welding system to manufacture its axle assemblies. After verifying the capability to produce simple components, Genesis and American Axle decided to avoid a line-type of system and instead develop a system which would de-couple the assembly process. The end result was a system that performed above specifications, while achieving the optimum balance of speed and quality.
