How to Improve Worker Safety Around Robotics

Industrial robots offer increasingly compelling opportunities to help companies get more done and promote consistency in the workplace. Robot safety is another area of concern, especially since robots can reduce some of the risks that cause accidents.

Choosing the Right Inertial Sensor for your Robot

The latest generation inclinometers provide much more stable performance and higher accuracy.

Robot Sensor Market Outlook

The Robot Sensors Market has developed rapidly and boasts of an extensive product base, with estimated earnings of over USD 2 billion in 2017.

The use of Inertial Sensors in Robotics

The primary uses for inertial sensors are platform stability and global positioning, but we are seeing increasing use as feedback in articulated limbs.

7 Reasons Your Life Depends on an Accurate IMU (Inertial Measurement Unit) in a Self-Driving Car

An inertial measurement unit (IMU) is a device that directly measures the three linear acceleration components and the three rotational rate components (6-DOF) of a vehicle.

How Industrial Self-driving Vehicles Use Sensors for Localization and Mapping

OTTO self-driving vehicles depend on three different sensors to identify its current position as well as to navigate where and how it needs to travel from point A to point B. As in any dense and dynamic environment, elements in OTTOs path can change minute to minute

Industrial Robots: Encoders for Tool Center Point Accuracy

The use of secondary encoders on all of a robots 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

Interview with Shaoshan Liu and Zhe Zhang of PerceptIn

Using our technology, we are able to reduce the cost of the whole vehicle (including the chassis, the computing hardware, and the sensing hardware, and the software stack) under $10,000 USD.

Q&A with Hillcrest Labs - High Value AHRS/IMUs Enable Low Cost Robot Navigation

The module allows rapid development of new robots by providing all the sensors and sensor processing software in one compact, pre-calibrated device with multiple interfaces supported to meet varying developer requirements.

Soft Stretchy Sensors

When the sensor is integrated into a wearable device and placed across a joint, it is stretched when the joint moves. We can correlate the joint's movement and sensor's capacitance change in order to monitor motion.

Waypoint Robotics/Productive Robotics Easy to Use, Omnidirectional 7 DoF Mobile Manipulator

Waypoint Robotics/Productive Robotics omnidirectional 7 DoF mobile manipulator combines the easiest to use, most capable omnidirectional autonomous mobile robot with the simplest and most flexible 7 axis collaborative robot arm. The Vector AMR's omnidirectional mobility enables fast, precise docking in any direction or orientation so the OB7 can perform accurate and precise grasping or picking tasks, taking full advantage of the cobots' 7 degrees of freedom (7 DoF) and superior dexterity. It can be powered using Waypoint's EnZone wireless charger that provides on-demand energy and opportunity charging for longer run times. Workers can use this mobile platform to perform repetitive tasks such as machine tending, quality assurance sampling, material replenishment, packaging, and many others, so they can focus on the high skilled jobs for which they are uniquely qualified. It has never been easier or more cost effective to deploy a mobile manipulator for manufacturing and logistics applications.
