BEAM robotics seem to be a good approach to teach learners about electronics in robotics. But can these robots be like regular programmed "cognitive" robots? Can these robots, with just analog circuits, take us to the level of robotic assistants, worker robots and other kinds of self sufficient spaceautonomous robots?

I specifically want to know that, when creating mission critical robots ->

  1. What are the areas in robotics which are practically impossible without a real time software system?

  2. What areas of the field can be done without programming? If yes, are these areas feasible without an onboard software system?

  3. Could a "curiosity rover"an intelligent space rover, work without a cpu in the future?

Robots without microcontrolers (beam robots). Are they technologically limited?
