NUMERICALLY CONTROLLED ROBOT:  This type of robot is programmed and operated much like a numerically controlled machine. PLAYBACK ROBOT:  The robot memorizes and records path and sequence of motions.  Power source  numerically controlled robot.  A fixed-sequence robot is programmed for a specific sequence of some modern robots. .  playback robots.  Electric circuit  Intelligent robot.ROBOT COMPONENTS: CLASSIFICATION OF ROBOTS: According to their operation. VARIABLE-SEQUENCE ROBOT:  The variable-sequence robot can be programmed for multiple specific operation sequence.
