A Robot is a machine or artificial agent that performs pre-progammed tasks with limited autonomy. It's less advanced than an android. It has mechanical components and can run on a computer program or artificial intelligence. Robots come in all sorts of different forms, most don't resemble a human.[1]

Robots generally perform simple automated tasks such as repetitive and highly accurate production line tasks. They also act as avatars for remotely located humans in hazardous environments.[2]

Manufacturers Edit

Various corporations design and manufacture robots such as Achilles Corporation and MacArthur Mining Ltd.

Laws Edit

Robots are legal in Federation, Empire, Alliance and Independent systems.[3]
