What is robotics?

As you all probably know, robots have experienced a great advance during the last few decades. They are becoming more and more present in our lives. But what is robotics exactly?

Robotics is actually a word that is used to describe a branch of engineering that has to do with the manufacture, design, conception and operation of robots. It is basically everything that has to do with robots. A robot is a machine able to carry out a list of tasks automatically, almost always programmable by a computer. Now let’s talk coding: what languages are used to program robots and which ones are the best?

This is a question people often ask when the begin programming robots and the problem is that the answer is not simple. Depending on the person you ask this question, the answer will be different. This is why I will give you a list of the 10 most popular languages used in robotics.

  1. C/C++
  2. Python
  3. Java
  4. C#/.NET
  5. MATLAB
  6. Assembly
  7. HDLs
  8. LISP
  9. BASIC/Pascal
  10. Industrial Robot Languages

This is just a brief overview of the most famous languages so if you want to know more about one of the languages follow our blog and leave a comment to tell me which one you would like me to talk about. Personally, I will start teaching you Arduino, a language which uses C/C++.

What will I teach you in future blog posts about Arduino?

In future blog posts, I will teach you the basics of Arduino and then we will start going further in the language and make small programs using an Arduino board and the Arduino free software, so if you want to learn more about Arduino, stay tuned and follow us.
