This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.
Robotics, although it's a plural noun, is treated as a singular noun.
See terms like Linguistics, Statistics or Economics, just to name a few.
Robotic can't be used, because it's an adjective, not a noun (like Robotics), so:
If you're using it as the field of study it is singular.
If you're using it to refer to the components of a robot then it is plural.
