Robot Hall of Fame

The School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University's Robot Hall of Fame honors "landmark achievements in robotics technology and the increasing contributions of robots to human endeavors." The website groups robots into two categories: Robots from Science and Robots from Science Fiction. Robots from Science includes "real robots that have served useful or potentially useful functions and demonstrated unique skills in accomplishing the purpose for which they were created." The Robots from Science Fiction, which are fictional robots, are honored for the inspiration they have provided and for helping "form our opinions about the functions and values of real robots." The Inductees honored for 2004 include ASIMO, Shakey, ASTRO BOY, Robby, the Robot, and C-3PO. A separate page is dedicated to each Inductee, where visitors will find an overview of the robot, video footage or photos, and other information. The Jury, which selects the robots each year, is made up of international scholars, researchers, writers, and designers. The website also includes a running list of nominations and invites others to include their own nominations.
