Robots in the Vineyard

In France’s Bordeaux region, robots ensure that the wine is organically good. They autonomously eliminate grass and weeds between the vines, making pesticides unnecessary. To enable the robots to navigate the hilly terrain, the developers took some cues from Mars rovers.

Drive Systems – Success Through Interdisciplinary Approaches

There is much more to consider than just the design and the motor selection. Interdisciplinary thinking, specific engineering knowledge, depth of experience, and a clear understanding of the requirements are critical factors.

maxon motor - Formulae Handbook for Design Engineers

The extensive collection with illustrations and descriptions includes formulas, terminology and explanations of the calculations that are relevant for drive systems. A flow chart provides assistance in selecting the right drive for each purpose.

DC Motors as Generators

Both brushed and brushless DC motors can be operated as generators. However, there are some important points to consider when designing the drive.

Power Density in Robotics

One of the basic requirements for the drives of mobile robots is high power density. For robots, this usually means high torque while taking up the smallest possible space.

Meet the Free-flying Camera on the ISS

Meet the new colleague for the crew of the International Space Station (ISS): an autonomous camera drone. The small sphere films the astronauts at work and this drone could potentially save about ten percent of their valuable working time.

Fauna Robotica

In millions of years of evolution, nature has produced many sophisticated locomotor systems that engineers use as inspiration for creating better robots. We show some current technical developments that are highly advanced.

Morphological Approaches in Medical Technology

Robotic devices for clinical rehabilitation of patients with neurological impairments come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes and employ different kinds of actuators.

Creating a Collaborative Humanoid Robot

The goal of our project is to create a dual-arm collaborative robot with a humanoid shape entirely designed, made, and built at Polytechnique Montreal (Canada).

It Will Be Possible to Integrate Exoskeletons Into Clothes

A stable wheelchair is automatically heavier. The same thing applies to exoskeletons. For a wearer to move about freely for an entire day, the battery has to be very powerful. But this means that it is also large and heavy.

Stepping It Up A Notch

Stairs are still unsurmountable obstacles for many robots. Yet a young team at ETH Zurich is building a vehicle designed to negotiate steps with ease – by hopping.

Power Density in Robotics

A question of torque - Inspection robots for pipes and ducts, rescue robots in disaster areas, or humanoid robots – they all have one thing in common: They are mobile robots that aid humans.

The Art of Building a Robot

Sensors and gripper arms can simply be attached and removed as needed. You dont even have to be a specialist to quickly and easily replace a defective part, which makes the robots extremely flexible and economical to operate.

These Robots Crawl Into Every Nook and Cranny

The latest addition is a small crawler robot that magnetically "sticks" to metal walls and is able to move in all directions. It carries cameras, sensors and tools for inspection or maintenance work in tight pipes and on the outer hulls of tanks or ships.

The Delivery Robots are Coming!

When people look up at the sky, they see more and more drones. Yet the breakthrough for delivery robots will take place on the ground – if the lawmakers give the green light.

The Intelligent Prosthetic Leg

Hiking, going cycling with friends. With the right prosthetic leg, amputees can once again lead an active life. Ottobock and maxon motor are helping to improve the quality of their lives.

Encoder Selection: Speed Control

A general in depth analysis shows that the highest encoder resolutions are required for very precise speed control. The encoder resolution increases with the square of the demanded speed accuracy.

In Search of a Lost Veteran

The largest submarine of WWII has been sitting on the bottom of the ocean off the Japanese coast for 70 years. Researchers finally found the lost wreck with the aid of an underwater robot – and Swiss drive technology.

Be Polite to Machines!

Machines won't be receptive to emotional, snide, impetuous, plaintive, vague or rambling communication. The algorithms will gently correct our moods and keep inquiring, relentlessly reasonable – or push the matter off to be dealt with later because they're not getting a useful answer from us.

Gemini-Scout Mine Rescue Robot

Reliability, ability to travel across varied terrains, and accurate operation are essential elements for the drive system and camera controls on mining rescue robots.

Service Robots Use Flat Motors

Service robots being designed for the disabled must be reliable, safe, and easy to use. Having the right motion system components is essential for these highly specific applications.
