The sentinel droid was an android used by the Republic Military

"Most people have forgotten that 'droid' is short for 'android,' meaning manlike."
Lando Calrissian, complaining how little Vuffi Raa resembled a human[src]

Android was a term that meant manlike. The word droid was short for android.[1] However, the term later became synonymous with cyborg, an organic being with body parts replaced by artificial ones, particularly those who were non-human.[2] Like droids, androids were considered property and could be bought and sold.[3]
