This figure illustrates the connections between Co-Defender, Co-Inhabitant, Co-Explorer, Co-Worker and Intelligent Co-Robot.

Figure 2. Representative NRI Application Space

The scope of the application domains perceived as worthy and viable adopters of this technology is illustrated in Figure 2, NRI Application Space. They exemplify the application of robotic systems as co-workers, co-inhabitants, co-explorers and co-defenders. Again, the list in the graphic is inclusive, but by no means exclusive.
