Abstract— This paper investigates life saving and time saving research robots which are installed in industry, military, space, hospital, medical, surgical, home, echo friendly, inspection, public and security system for performing labour and life saving jobs. At present, new types of robots are being developed in laboratories and much of the researches on robotics are focuses not on specific industrial tasks, but on investigations into new types of robots. And also focuses the alternative ways to think about the design of robots and its manufacturing process. The main goals of Research robots such as nano-robots/soft-robots/super-robots/swarm-robots/hap-tic-Interfacerobots are as small as viruses, to cure the cancer and protect other sophisticated parts of the human body. The physical structures of these robots are like amoeba, which can move/roll/ jump and change its configuration such as assembling and disassembling of its components, which depends on its requirement. It is very difficult to operate accurately therefore increasing the mobility, stability and precision, several smart materials, smart actuators and sensors are to be used to sense and react to the effect of environmental inputs, and to stimulate the devices. It is expected that these new type of robots will be able to solve real world problems when they are finally realized.

Index Terms— Nano-robots, Soft-robots, Super-robots, Swarm-robots, Hap-tic-interface robots, Smart actuators/sensors/materials
