Summary, etc.: "People tire easily and make mistakes when they work too long. They need to sleep and eat enough in order to do their best. Robots, however, can do repetitive tasks perfectly every time! They rarely need breaks and definitely don't need naps! Readers learn how integral robots have become in many parts of industry, including in production, factories, and in situations dangerous for people. Full-color photographs provide readers with a unique look at a growing branch of science. The main content and sidebars highlight real-life examples of robots at work as well as understandable explanations of their technology"--Provided by the publisher.
