They have been programmed to do many tasks and so they can produce more than humans and they are fast in production. Not needing to divide their attention to any other activity, they focus more on their work.  A robot will never feel stressed out and start running slower.

Quality work

Working as both an employee and quality control system, robots delivers a perfect job at the end of the day. Being created for a particular action or motion, they make less mistakes. Because of their accuracy and good work, they easily replace humans in some kind of jobs.


Safety is the most obvious advantage of utilizing robotics. Heavy machinery, machinery that runs at hot temperature, and sharp objects can easily injure a human being. By giving robots some of the dangerous to do, an employer will likely have to look at a repair bill than a serious medical bill or a lawsuit. People who work dangerous jobs will be thankful that robots can remove some of the risks in their jobs.



It has been a long time coming since robots have been taking over humans’ jobs especially those of heavy risks, and they are relied on for accuracy, timeliness, and faster productivity. The question isn’t whether it is a good thing or not; of course it is a good thing. This isn’t bad for human either because humans have to be the ones who build such robots – at least for now.
