This review paper consists of studies on the remote controlled mobile robots. There is alsocomparison between the different type of robot found in research and commercial use. There isparticular analysis on control systems of Android humanoid robot with response comparison of real human system.
Robots have become a subject of great interest nowadays.In our imagination, a robot is a machine that looks and acts like a human being.Robots are, in fact defined man-made mechanical devices that can move by themselves, whosemotion must be modeled, planned, sensed, actuated and controlled, and whose motion behavior
can be influenced by “programming”.
 The terms robot and robotics are only used. The term robot was first introduced by a Czech
dramatist, Karel Capek in his 1921 play ”Rossum‟s Universal Robots”. He was
referring to aperfect and tireless worker performing manual labor jobs for human beings.Many people think of robotics as a single area of technology, but in fact robotics encompassedsuch diverse areas of technology as mechanical, electrical, electronics, systems, computerhardware and software, biology and a host of other advanced technology.
 Definition of a Robot
“A robot is a re
-programmable, multifunctional machine designed to manipulate materials, partstools, or specialized devices, through variable programmed motions for the performance of a
variety of tasks.”
 Robotics Industries Association
“A robot is a automatic device that performs functions normally ascribed to humans or machinein the forms of a human.”
A Brief History of Robots
The acclaimed Czech playwright Karel Capek made the first use of the word „robot‟, from the
Czech word for forced labor or serf.
The word „robotics‟ was first used in
Runaround, a short story published in 1942, by IsaacAsimov.But it was until 1956 that a real robot came into existence.
