'Position sensor' is a broad term covering a range of technologies. In this article, we consider sensors that measure rotation and linear displacement.
Multipath interference is one of the biggest challenges faced in time of flight cameras. In this article, learn what multipath interference means, and the 3 methods you can use to minimize it.
The robotics industry is ever-changing. Engineers are always looking for new ways to create helpful tools and machinery, but those employees are often primarily men.
In the future, cameras could spot blackbirds feeding on grapes in a vineyard and launch drones to drive off the avian irritants, then return to watch for the next invading flock. All without a human nearby.
In a global first, scientists at Hokkaido University have demonstrated that molecular robots are able to accomplish cargo delivery by employing a strategy of swarming, achieving a transport efficiency five times greater than that of single robots.
There are significant numbers of manufacturing and robotics companies which have publicly stated the importance and value of gender equality; they are eager to find female talent.
With the Power of Autonomous Iron, Caterpillar Pulls Off the Ultimate Trick Shot in Cat Trial 12: No Hands
On a field in the middle of the Arizona desert, a soccer legend and autonomous Cat® machines use proven technology to conquer challenging obstacle courses and score a major goal in the name of safety and efficiency.
Because there is such a shortage of fork truck drivers for the foreseeable future, automation has become an imperative. The only alternative is to automate bringing loads of finish goods (or sub-assembly) from docks to warehouses and warehouse to docks.
From direct seeding, pesticide spraying to fertilizer application, XAG's agricultural drones have seen its increasing popularity among rural youth who are keen to earn a decent salary as drone pilot.
Traditionally, the goods-to-person method is enabled by large and complex AS/RS systems where shuttle carts, roller conveyors, and stack cranes are used for transporting items. Recently, implementing mobile robots in warehouses for automation has been increasingly popular.
We have been hearing a lot about AGVs and AMRs in warehouses and fulfillment centers. But do you understand the differences between these two? Let's find out from the experts.
Recent innovations are transforming the field of marine robots. Aquatic robotics is already a cutting-edge sector, taking complex technologies and applying them to underwater tasks.
Choosing the right cable to use in any application depends on many parameters. One of the most important is its ability to thermally resist a maximum imposed current.
Harmonic Bionics has developed a patented robotic actuator, which uses a load cell that is mechanically isolated from any extraneous loads. The result is that each load cell can sense the force exerted by only the joint of the robot it is mounted to.
The next generation of robotic systems require high performance inertial sensors but also demand high volume, low cost solutions.

The ST Robotics Workspace Sentry robot and area safety system are based on a small module that sends an infrared beam across the workspace. If the user puts his hand (or any other object) in the workspace, the robot stops using programmable emergency deceleration. Each module has three beams at different angles and the distance a beam reaches is adjustable. Two or more modules can be daisy chained to watch a wider area. "A robot that is tuned to stop on impact may not be safe. Robots where the trip torque can be set at low thresholds are too slow for any practical industrial application. The best system is where the work area has proximity detectors so the robot stops before impact and that is the approach ST Robotics has taken," states President and CEO of ST Robotics David Sands.
