Robots that are programmed can't deviate from those programs
unless you have path alongside it

What is the meaning of "unless you have path alongside it"? Unless you programmed a pattern that enables the robot to deviate?

"That's strange, the way that paper holds up that speaker."

I can't understand what does he mean by "the way that paper holds up that speaker".

If it's raining, the robot may open an umbrella
above itself. But when the raindrops hit the umbrella
they make contact with two terminals
so there's a flow across. That opens the umbrella.

What is the meaning of "terminals" here? Sensors that detect raindropes? What is the meaning of "so there's a flow across"?

Unless there is a secondary program running that provide the robot with another triggered option.

An older audio speaker design uses a cone of paper to convert electric signals into physical sound waves, with one side of the cone connected directly to the moving driver coil.

Rather than design robots so they have to 'decide' to open up an umbrella, simple exposed terminals can be used to detect the presence of liquid (such as a raindrop completing the connection between two terminals), which then causes the umbrella to open.
