Scientists have been working on how robots can contribute to the Olympics and do small jobs. An example of a job is helping and guiding people who get lost. This is only one of the several tasks that would be assigned to robots. More research is currently going on and the ultimate goal is to find more roles for these robots.

This article relates to engineering because it shows how with some research and designing, a big event, such as the Olympics, can be supported.

Here is a video that shows an example of how to program a robot. This is to learn more about how researchers are trying to program robots to work at this event.
