    • E.

      Output

    Correct Answer
    C. Feedback
    Explanation
    Feedback refers to the information that is sent from robot sensors to robot controllers. It allows the controllers to adjust and modify the robot's actions based on the received information. This feedback loop enables the robot to make accurate and precise movements, improving its overall performance and functionality.

    Which of the following terms refers to the left - right movement of a robot arm?

    • A.

      Yaw

    • B.

      Vertical

    • C.

      Pitch

    • D.

      Swing

    • E.

      Roll

    Correct Answer
    A. Yaw
    Explanation
    Yaw refers to the left-right movement of a robot arm. It is the rotation of the arm around the vertical axis, allowing the arm to move horizontally from side to side. This movement is similar to the movement of a person turning their head left or right. Yaw is one of the basic movements of a robot arm and is essential for navigating and manipulating objects in different directions.

    Which one of the following terms refers to the up - down motion of a robot arm?

    • A.

      Yaw

    • B.

      Pitch

    • C.

      Lateral

    • D.

      Roll

    • E.

      Elevate

    Correct Answer
    B. Pitch
    Explanation
    Pitch refers to the up-down motion of a robot arm. Yaw refers to the side-to-side motion, lateral refers to the movement to the side, roll refers to the rotation around the longitudinal axis, and elevate refers to the vertical movement of an object. Therefore, pitch is the correct term for the up-down motion of a robot arm.

  • 4. 

    The number of moveable joints in the base, the arm, and the end effector of the robot determines ............... ?

    • A.

      Degrees of freedom

    • B.

      Payload capacity

    • C.

      Operational limits

    • D.

      Flexibility

    • E.

      Cost

    Correct Answer
    A. Degrees of freedom
    Explanation
    The number of moveable joints in the base, the arm, and the end effector of the robot determines the degrees of freedom. Degrees of freedom refer to the number of independent variables or parameters that can be adjusted in order to position or orient the robot's end effector in a specific way. The more moveable joints a robot has, the higher its degrees of freedom, allowing it to perform a wider range of movements and tasks.

    Which of the following terms refers to the rotational motion of a robot arm? 

    • A.

      Swivel

    • B.

      Axle

    • C.

      Retrograde

    • D.

      Roll

    • E.

      Yaw

    Correct Answer
    D. Roll
    Explanation
    Roll refers to the rotational motion of a robot arm. In robotics, roll is the rotation of an object around its longitudinal axis. It is similar to the rolling motion of a wheel, where the object rotates in a circular motion along its axis. In the context of a robot arm, roll refers to the rotation of the arm around its axis, allowing it to move in a circular or arc-like motion.

    What is the name for the space inside which a robot unit operates?

    • A.

      Environment

    • B.

      Spatial base

    • C.

      Danger zone

    • D.

      Exclusion zone

    • E.

      Work envelop

    Correct Answer
    E. Work envelop
    Explanation
    The term "work envelope" refers to the space within which a robot unit operates. It defines the boundaries and limitations of the robot's movements and activities. The work envelope is crucial in determining the reach and range of the robot, ensuring that it can perform its tasks effectively and safely within a designated area.

  • 7. 

    Which of the following terms IS NOT one of the five basic parts of a robot?

    • A.

      Peripheral tools

    • B.

      End effector

    • C.

      Controller

    • D.

      Drive

    • E.

      Sensor

    Correct Answer
    A. Peripheral tools
    Explanation
    Peripheral tools are not one of the five basic parts of a robot. The five basic parts of a robot are the end effector, controller, drive, and sensor. Peripheral tools, on the other hand, refer to additional tools or accessories that can be used with a robot but are not considered essential components of the robot itself. These tools may include grippers, cameras, or other devices that can enhance the robot's capabilities but are not necessary for its basic functioning.

    Which of the following places would be LEAST likely to include operational robots?

    • A.

      Warehouse

    • B.

      Factories

    • C.

      Hospitals

    • D.

      Private homes

    • E.

      Chemical Research Laboratories

    Correct Answer
    D. Private homes
    Explanation
    Private homes would be least likely to include operational robots because robots are typically used in places that require repetitive tasks, heavy lifting, or precision work. While there are some robots designed for household chores such as vacuuming or lawn mowing, they are not as common as robots used in warehouses, factories, hospitals, or chemical research laboratories. In private homes, tasks are usually performed by humans or simpler machines that do not require advanced robotics technology. Therefore, private homes are the least likely place to find operational robots.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    For a robot unit to be considered a functional industrial robot, typically, how many degrees of freedom would the robot have?

    • A.

      Three

    • B.

      Four

    • C.

      Six

    • D.

      Eight

    • E.

      Ten

    Correct Answer
    C. Six
    Explanation
    A functional industrial robot typically has six degrees of freedom. Degrees of freedom refer to the number of independent movements or axes that a robot can perform. With six degrees of freedom, a robot can move in three-dimensional space and perform a wide range of tasks, such as picking up objects, manipulating tools, and navigating complex environments. This level of flexibility and maneuverability makes a robot with six degrees of freedom highly versatile and suitable for various industrial applications.

    Which of the basic parts of a robot unit would include the computer circuitry that could be programmed to determine what the robot would do?

    • A.

      Sensor

    • B.

      Controller

    • C.

      Arm

    • D.

      End effector

    • E.

      Drive

    Correct Answer
    B. Controller
    Explanation
    The controller is the basic part of a robot unit that includes the computer circuitry that can be programmed to determine what the robot would do. It is responsible for processing the input from sensors and making decisions based on the programmed instructions. The controller acts as the brain of the robot, controlling its movements and actions according to the desired tasks and objectives.
