Exploring Versatility: GSM-Based Robotic Vehicle Technology

Introduction To Robotics The term ‘Robot’ remains elusive, defying a precise definition due to its evolving usage. Initially, it referred to humanoid or human-like beings and originated from the Czech word meaning ‘slave labor,’ coined by Karel ÄŚapek in his 1921 play, “Rossum’s Universal Robots.” These early robots were biochemical entities, akin to what we
