New Cornell Research On Object Identification Within Enviroments

In Cornell's Personal Robotics Laboratory, a team led by Ashutosh Saxena, assistant professor of computer science, is teaching robots to manipulate objects and find their way around in new environments. The researchers trained a robot by giving it 24 office scenes and 28 home scenes in which they had labeled most objects. The computer examines such features as color, texture and what is nearby and decides what characteristics all objects with the same label have in common. In a new environment, it compares each segment of its scan with the objects in its memory and chooses the ones with the best fit.

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

PQ12-R Micro Linear Servo

The PQ12-R series of linear servos are the smallest affordable linear servo on the market today. Small enough to fit inside a tic tac box, it's very powerful with a maximum force of over 11lbs. It operates as a direct plug-and-play replacement for standard rotary servos, using the same standard 3 wire connector. Regardless of how you drive your servos, be it with an RC receiver, an Arduino board, or a VEX micro-controller, the PQ12-R servo will function in place of a regular servo, but with the added benefit of providing linear motion. They're available in a 20mm stroke coupled with gear ratio options of 30:1, 63:1 and 100:1 cover a large variety of applications. Our PQ12 is popular used in a variety of robotics applications, medical devices, radio control and 3D printable bionic hands. Our PQ12 is proudly designed in Canada by our in-house team of engineers and thoroughly tested before leaving our facility.
