Disney’s ‘Physical Face Cloning’

Disney Research released info on research they've been doing for simulating, and fabricating synthetic skin for an animatronics character that mimics the face of a given subject and its expressions. The process starts with measuring the elastic properties of a material used to manufacture synthetic soft tissue. Given these measurements they use physics-based simulation to predict the behavior of a face when it is driven by the underlying robotic actuation. Next, we capture 3D facial expressions for a given target subject.

Servo2Go - CANopen Input Sinusoidal Brushless Servo Amplifiers establish a new benchmark in versatility

CANopen digital servo drives are designed to drive brushed and brushless servomotors in torque, velocity, or position mode and employs Space Vector Modulation (SVM), which results in higher bus voltage utilization and reduced heat dissipation compared to traditional PWM drives.
