Action, gesture, motion, and robots can be kept under control through a wearable, small but powerful electronic board.
The company was looking to integrate a robot system that could handle placing a product sheet label in at least 5 different, smaller container models. The customer came to us with the hope of being able to improve throughput and consistency in their label placement process.
It can be difficult to install and adjust two parallel linear guides for smooth and precise motion. The most common obstacle is binding which can result when mounting surfaces aren't exactly parallel. UtiliTrak® linear guides are designed with some unique features to compensate for mounting surface errors so that absolute parallelism is not required. This can save time and frustration.
The use of a Real-Time Operating System (RTOS) is increasingly common in embedded software designs.
Julia Alexander for Polygon: With HTC Vive and Oculus Rift headsets, the first wave of mainstream, consumer VR has officially arrived, and with it, comes the question of how to constantly better the experience for those using it. As it stands right now, those who want to use devices like the Vive or Rift must do so with controllers; the Rift uses an Xbox One controller while the Vive comes with its own dedicated peripheral. Both are functional and serve their purpose, but they come with certain limitations when trying to achieve the ideal VR experience. Now, Dexmo Robotics has unveiled what it thinks will solve some of those frustrations: a mechanical exoskeleton glove that can be paired with VR headsets. The glove, which can be seen in the video above, provides 11 degrees of freedom for movement, and the company touts the fact that each finger comes with a pressured sensor. Essentially, if you're playing a first-person shooter, you'll be able to feel the in-game gun's trigger bring squeezed as well as the recoil. Full Article:
Freed from the isolation of the real-time system and from other functions such as the user interface, OEMs are able to explore more innovative solutions with less risk and overhead.
George Konidaris and Daniel Sorin of Duke University have developed a new technology that cuts robotic motion planning times by 10,000 while consuming a small fraction of the power compared to current options. Watch one of their robotic arms in action as they explain how their innovative solution works.

Robolink: Articulated joint modules for robots. igus® now offers a lightweight, maintenance- and corrosion-free range of robot joints for humanoid systems or other automated applications. The carbon-fiber plastic joints can rotate and oscillate freely via four wire ropes. No more expensive milling, cutting or DIY systems. Moving mass is reduced to a minimum. The actuators (engines, pneumatics and hydraulics) and the control module (DP, PC) are kept separate. Contact igus® for more information and free samples.
