As companies continue to integrate more automation into their warehouses and DCs, the need for intelligent sensors to monitor and guide that equipment in a very safe, efficient, and productive manner will also increase.
'Position sensor' is a broad term covering a range of technologies. In this article, we consider sensors that measure rotation and linear displacement.
The topic of retrofitting, i.e., the modernization of machines and systems into the digital age, is also an important trend in terms of sustainability, energy saving and resource optimization that we are also serving.
When you sell a robot, the amount of additional required pneumatic components, sensing products, vision inspection systems and machine safety products can cost as much or more than the robot itself. Every robot sold has an exponential economic ripple effect.
Deep-learning technique optimizes the arrangement of sensors on a robot's body to ensure efficient operation.
Our focus was to provide a solution that offers ease of use and eliminate the customer's need to outsource components and programming. The integration of our MSCL, ROS, and several Open-Source API's, allows for the application of available and compatible software.
A vast majority of manufacturers are integrating robotic systems in production facilities to enhance production capacity, boost profit margins, and cut operational costs. These trends have created a substantial demand for robotic components, including robot sensors like 3D vision.
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced changes to our daily lives, but when it comes to technology, not all changes have been unwelcomed. In many ways, shifting the way we live has accelerated the use of technology to a level that we were only beginning to dip our toes into.
Justin R. Bessette, Manager of Technology at Parker LORD, Microstrain shares with us his thoughts on how Parker LORD is managing through the pandemic as well as insights into what the future of Robotics and Automation may be.
Its compact, versatile design enables the system to map small, fragmented and narrow spaces as well as environments with many obstacles and uneven terrain.
To achieve large-scale commercialization of autonomous vehicles, a new generation of high-precision 3D environment sensing solid-state LiDAR technology products will be required to fulfill the industry's strict requirements.
Created to spotlight the advances in both innovations and real-world applications of sensors, the prestigious awards were presented by Event Director, Cal Groton, during Sensors Expo & Conference 2019 held this week in San Jose, California.
Hirebotics understands that an automation solution is much more than purchasing new equipment. Their business model enables customers to hire a robot, trained and ready, to perform a job just as they would a contract employee. The robots are paid per minute of work ...
Designing a new motor or a gearbox often requires calculating how much torque will be required to perform a primary task of the application. Undersizing or underpowering can lead to premature failure of the equipment.
Industry Giants Dell, IBM, Intel and Microsoft Join 300+ Sensing Technology Providers at 2018 Sensors Expo & Conference
Thousands of leading engineers and innovators flock to Sensors each year to see the largest showcase of sensing technologies and identify new ways to improve products and expand capabilities using sensors.

Humans and robots can now share tasks - and this new partnership is on the verge of revolutionizing the production line. Today's drivers like data-driven services, decreasing product lifetimes and the need for product differentiation are putting flexibility paramount, and no technology is better suited to meet these needs than the Omron TM Series Collaborative Robot. With force feedback, collision detection technology and an intuitive, hand-guided teaching mechanism, the TM Series cobot is designed to work in immediate proximity to a human worker and is easier than ever to train on new tasks.
