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 dont 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.

From School Library Journal:

Gr 3-5-Though the authors resort to repetition and subject overlap to fill out these surveys, the topic is high in interest and likely to become higher as robotic devices become more widespread. The Spilsburys open each volume with a summary of the multiple ways robots are faster, safer, more reliable alternatives to human effort in a chosen technological or industrial field, then go on to make the same points in slightly greater detail. The term robot-translated correctly but without comment in Industry as "forced labor"-is interpreted broadly enough to include radar guns and "smart highways," in Law Enforcement, and powered exoskeletons or prosthetics both there and in Medicine and Military. In each volume, several specific devices or systems get closer looks, as do upcoming developments in sidebars unequivocally titled "Robots Are the Future." The authors do at least bring up issues, such as whether industrial robots take jobs or create them, but rarely for more than urging readers to think them over. Aside from brief resource lists and indexes, there is no back matter, and the illustrations generally offer external views rather than glimpses of internal workings. The pictures aren't consistently well chosen, either. VERDICT Serviceable offerings, though with flaws.α(c) Copyright 2011. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
