A mechanical or bio-mechanical being that has a mobile body that usually bears some relation to human or animal bodies. Sentience is not required for this tag (see “AI”). Does not include automated machines that perform repetitive tasks such as industrial robots used in factories to build cars (see “Automation”). R2D2 in Star Wars would be included. The artwork Jller would be tagged with automaton but not robot, as the “robotic arm” is not independently mobile.
