Possible first occurence of anthrobotics in a Mark Rosheim paper

The term anthrobotics was originally coined by Mark Rosheim in a paper entitled “Design of An Omnidirectional Arm” presented at the IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation, May 13–18, 1990, pp. 2162–2167.

Rosheim says he derived the term from “…Anthropomorphic and Robotics to distinguish the new generation of dexterous robots from its simple industrial robot forbears.” The word gained wider recognition as a result of its use in the title of Rosheim’s subsequent book Robot Evolution: The Development of Anthrobotics, which focussed on facsimiles of human physical and psychological skills and attributes.
