Understanding resolution, accuracy and repeatability is critical to specifying a position sensor. This paper defines these terms and discusses how they relate to overall system performance.
One of the key considerations while choosing the perfect set of sensors for your robotic designs include their resistance to ambient situations such as temperature, lights, interferences and obstructions.
The next generation of robotic systems require high performance inertial sensors but also demand high volume, low cost solutions.
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.
The latest generation inclinometers provide much more stable performance and higher accuracy.
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 primary uses for inertial sensors are platform stability and global positioning, but we are seeing increasing use as feedback in articulated limbs.
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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.
5th annual event to feature brightest minds and hottest technologies in the world of robotics
Measured performance is at the level expected and increases the range of applications which may be addressed by open loop transducers instead of more complex solutions.

Machine safety and security are two critical components of any industrial operation. Our latest video explores this question and provides insights into how security measures can enhance machine safety. Nivedita Ojha, VP of Product at FORT, breaks down the key considerations when it comes to securing your machines and keeping your workers safe, explaining why there is no safety without security.
