Robot-a machine that resembles a human and does mechanical, routine tasks on command.

Robots used by Bomb Squad in order to take care of IED's (Improvised Explosive Device) and other explosives. On great thing about using a robot to handle IED's are that they can be more careful with them than a person can. IED's are usually unstable, unlike C4 which can be thrown around and not detonate, so handling them with care is very important. Also if the explosive does detonate on accident then it will only damage the robot and not the person operating it.
