Until Richard Nixon signed the Occupational Health and Safety Act into law in 1970, 14,000 American workers died and another 2 million were disabled every year in the 1960s.

One of the first industrial robots was UNIMATE, which was capable of doing one task repeatedly. But problems arose when confronted anything even slightly unusual.
