Automaton (5)

Ross

I think it could be either:

robot

golem

'automaton' is the definition.
(I know that automaton can be written as robot)

This is the entire clue.

(Other definitions for robot that I've seen before include "Automated machine" , "Android, possibly" , "Automation" , "Humanoid machine" , "Computer-controlled machine" .)

I've seen this clue in the Sydney Morning Herald, The Star Tribune, The Irish Times, the LA Times, the Evening Standard, The Mirror, The Guardian, The Independent and The Telegraph.
