BB-8, R2-D2, and a B1 Battle Droid, three examples of droids

Droid, short for Android, where mechanical creatures given artificial intelligence and programming to help their masters. They were used in a variety of roles and environments, often those considered too menial or too dangerous for other species, but also in fields that required extensive specialization and knowledge. Several factions throughout Galactic History have used droids, the most notable being the Confederacy of Independent Systems, as they used a large army of Battle droids during the Clone Wars.
