History Of Robots The term ‘robot’ derived from a czech word ‘robota’, meaning ‘drudgery’ or slave-like labor’. It was first used to describe fabricated workers in a fictional 1921 play by czech author Karel Capek entitled ‘rossum’s universal robots’. in the story, a scientist invents robots to help people by performing simple, repetitive tasks.
