Robots have been used in many dangerous environments, keeping humans from being harmed ("Reaching"). For example, The Department of energy faces the enormous task of cleaning up radioactive waste and harmful chemicals accumulated during years of nuclear weapons production at sites across the country ("Robots work"). To clean this mess up the DOE uses robots. This is a very practical way to prevent harm to humans from the radioactive material. This is one job that is not to be messed around with a human life. Also the robots are very cost effective, because of the risk involved and the fact that they never get tired ("Robots work"). For people to do the job the robots do, it would require very high pay and very skilled technicians ("Robots work"). It would be hard to find a skilled professional to risk their life for this job. Robots are also being used by the military to eliminate the need for manual rearming of battle tanks ("Reaching"). This is good because once again it will provide a safe environment and increase efficiency. They will also help the army in terms of cost effectiveness. For instance, when tank after tank are coming in for... [continues]
