A robot is a machine—especially one programmable by a computer—capable of carrying out a complex series of actions automatically. A robot is made up of the very same components. A typical robot has a movable physical structure, a motor of some sort, a sensor system, a power supply and a computer "brain" that controls all of these elements.

Essentially, robots are man-made versions of animal life -- they are machines that replicate human and animal behavior.
