Another noteworthy benefit in using robots is the fact that they only need good ventilation and proper regulation of dust and moisture levels in their work environment. They don’t require lunch breaks, heating, air-conditioning. They are not like human workers who require a workplace that does not pose health risk and potential injuries. Additionally, robots don’t demand salaries, bonuses, and other forms of compensation. As such they are less costly to deploy. They work with little supervision and only require periodic maintenance.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
