We are currently focused on two main solutions - human presence detection with depth for autonomous mobile robots and UV-C disinfection robots. We also focus on obstacle detection and avoidance as well as localization and mapping for AMRs.
As both an industry and an entire class of technology, robotics changes and advances rapidly. Whether as a hobbyist or seasoned robotics engineer, you need to know each component inside and out. You should also know how to choose between several different variations.
When determining which system is right for your application, it can be difficult to visualize the impact of IMU selection on total system performance. Our goal in this paper is to show how the quality of the IMU affects the end-use system via several real-world tests.
Servo drives have evolved far beyond the basic power amplifiers they once were. They can now be complex pieces of electronic equipment with dozens of additional features to expand upon and improve their motion control capabilities.
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.
Conversion from a Neon CL board to an Axion board is quite simple. The connectors are the same, so cabling won't be an issue. Simply swap out the boards, upgrade the SDK to the most recent version available on our website, recompile your code and you are good to go.
Below you will find ten different options for controlling linear actuators. This list is intended to give you an overview of what's possible for linear actuator control. It's not exhaustive, there are other options, but these are the ones that will work for most people.
The design and functionality of a DC motor controller depend on the characteristics of the motor and the electronic system it powers. Using the example of a brushed DC motor controller, we'll consider its operating principles and circuit design.
Can loads be positioned dynamically, with high precision and no oscillation, despite mechanical backlash and elastic components? Yes - using an intelligent system.
There are many commutation schemes, many of which have hardware implications. Right now, we'll take a look at Field Oriented Control (a well-established method of commutation) and Field Estimated Control (IQ's new method of commutation).
Bottomless conveyors, also called side-gripping conveyors, provide a simple solution for accessing the underside of a product for a range of applications. These applications include inspection, printing, labeling and edge sealing.
The portable inspection system iX-600 enables a non-contact and therefore guaranteed non-destructive inspection (NDI - Non-Destructive-Inspection) of composite materials. Testing can be carried out with regard to detachment, delamination or porosity.
Scientists make a big leap in development of soft robotic grippers by integrating sensing mechanisms into 3D printable fingers.
GNSS and INS performance accuracy is generally tested in an ideal static environment, and often not representative of end use performance. Dynamic environments introduce error sources such as multipath, obscured sky view, vibration, inconsistent RTK data streams and more.
The lifetime cost of ownership of a mobile robot is largely influenced by the design of its drivetrain. If the OEM uses well designed and proven components, the mobile robot will provide many years of service with minimal downtime for maintenance.
