What do Robotics Engineers do?

Research, design, develop, or test robotic applications.

What are the Main Tasks of Robotics Engineers?

  • Debug robotics programs.
  • Provide technical support for robotic systems.
  • Review or approve designs, calculations, or cost estimates.
  • Install, calibrate, operate, or maintain robots.
  • Supervise, technologists, technicians, or other engineers.
  • Integrate robotics with peripherals, such as welders, controllers, or other equipment.
  • Process or interpret signals or sensor data.
  • Investigate mechanical failures or unexpected maintenance problems.
  • Create back-ups of robot programs or parameters.
  • Design automated robotic systems to increase production volume or precision in high-throughput operations, such as automated ribonucleic acid (RNA) analysis or sorting, moving, or stacking production materials.
  • Make system device lists or event timing charts.
  • Document robotic application development, maintenance, or changes.
  • Plan mobile robot paths and teach path plans to robots.
  • Analyze and evaluate robotic systems or prototypes.
  • Design end-of-arm tooling.
  • Build, configure, and test robots.
  • Design software to control robotic systems for applications, such as military defense or manufacturing.
  • Design robotic systems, such as automatic vehicle control, autonomous vehicles, advanced displays, advanced sensing, robotic platforms, computer vision, or telematics systems.
  • Write algorithms or programming code for ad hoc robotic applications.
  • Conduct research into the feasibility, design, operation, or performance of robotic mechanisms, components, or systems, such as planetary rovers, multiple mobile robots, reconfigurable robots, or man-machine interactions.
  • Conduct research on robotic technology to create new robotic systems or system capabilities.
  • Automate assays on laboratory robotics.
  • Design or program robotics systems for environmental clean-up applications to minimize human exposure to toxic or hazardous materials or to improve the quality or speed of clean-up operations.
  • Design robotics applications for manufacturers of green products, such as wind turbines or solar panels to increase production time, eliminate waste, or reduce costs.
