Robotics is an interdisciplinary branch of engineering, science, and technology that focuses on the design, construction, operation, and use of robots for various purposes, ranging from surgery to industrial manufacturing to automation. Robotics is used increasingly in a wide range of applications, from medicine and surgery to manufacturing and retail.
Radio control (RC) refers to the control of a remote-controlled model via an electronic device, such as an infrared remote, FM radio, or a smartphone. RC can also be used to control autonomous robots, including those used in military and industrial applications, as well as those used in entertainment and educational settings. RC is often used to describe model plane, boat, and car competitions.
