Real-time operating systems rely on kernel designs to expedite process communication and synchronization functionalities.
The use of secondary encoders on all of a robot's axes, as well as the use of linear encoders for positioning the robot relative to the workpiece, enables a level of accuracy at the tool center point
Depending on how tests of below-ground and above-ground equipment progress, multiple technologies could be incorporated into single vehicles to make them maximally adaptable to operator needs.
In this article, we will explore the basis and the future implications of this major transition. We will focus on two applications in particular: agriculture and last mile delivery.
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 team was able to easily visualize and monitor collected data as they were conducting the survey. As one team member tele-operated the Jackal, another member connected wirelessly via SSH to the robot to visualize the data in RViz on a laptop.
ATX West will be held from February 6th - 8th in Anaheim, California. This RoboticsTomorrow.com Special Tradeshow report aims to bring you news, articles and products from this years event.
Soft, Self-healing Devices Mimic Biological Muscles, Point to Next Generation of Human-like Robotics
The soft devices can perform a variety of tasks, including grasping delicate objects such as a raspberry and a raw egg, as well as lifting heavy objects. HASEL actuators exceed or match the strength, speed and efficiency of biological muscle.
The problem of navigating safely among pedestrians poses unique challenges. These include the increased unpredictability of pedestrians' actions, as well as the lack of navigation guidelines, such as lane lines.
Upon detecting a force that results in damage to one of its extremities, the machine immediately begins coordinating the movements of the remaining parts, allowing it to continue operating despite the injury sustained.
The PerceptoCore enables us to have autonomous navigation including autonomous landing and a variety of real time missions done without needing human intervention. In addition, it provides a unique safety layer so even if the communication is cut, the drone still understands
Offline Programming Software is Single Solution for Robotic Hammer Peening of Automotive Stamping Dies
Total programming time for one workpiece, including the time to import a CAD file and create a toolpath, was reduced from 12 hours to only 3.5 hours.
"Good morning, I would like you to meet your legal team." Artificial intelligence has proven useful in scanning and predicting what documents will be relevant to a particular case.
2017 - Most Popular Article - To achieve the highest performance, the stepper motor can be treated as a 2 phase brushless servo motor. Current to the motor will then be controlled as a function of the error signal just as with standard servo motors.
Programming a robot movement that must follow a volume in space is a complicated thing to do. We were able to do it with the path recording function of the FT 300.
