  5. Dexterity (noun): Skillful use of the hands or body, particularly in performing tasks that require fine motor skills.
    • Example Sentences:
      1. Robotic hands with high dexterity can perform intricate tasks such as assembling small electronic components.
      2. The surgeon’s robotic assistant demonstrated remarkable dexterity during the delicate surgery.
      3. Programming a robot for dexterity is crucial when it comes to tasks that demand precision and accuracy.

A Paragraph using the 5 vocabulary words

Robotics is a field that brings together different technologies to make smart machines. These machines need to be good at delicate tasks, this is called dexterity. Robotic machines sometimes use lidar, a tech that measures distances using lasers, to understand their surroundings. Algorithms act as the robot’s brain, guiding them in what to do step by step. Haptic feedback helps robots feel things, and kinematics makes sure they move just right. All of these things work together to make a robot, well, a robot. You see, robotics is about making machines that can do human-like tasks with skill, and these technologies are set in place so that we can see their environment, make sure they follow instructions, and are moving accurately.
