Robotics is the next stage after mechanization. Mechanization requires human to operate and with that improves efficiency since one person can get more done in the same amount of time. Robotics is to remove human or to be able to operate with less human intervention. That way, human can be deployed in areas where robotics are still facing major problems in autonomous operations.
