Anti shock and vibration lenses designed for robotics applications

Anti shock and vibration lenses designed for robotics applications
Fujinon has researched the robustness of lenses and developed a dedicated 'anti-shock and vibration' design. The HF-12M and HF-5M series are already equipped, available through the global vision specialist FRAMOS. Industrial imaging systems dealing with motion, shock, or vibration benefit from consistent image quality and less maintenance.

University robotics kit prepares engineers for systems-level design

University robotics kit prepares engineers for systems-level design
To stay competitive in a world increasing in complexity and efficiency, today’s engineering students must graduate with an understanding of engineering concepts across multiple disciplines and products. To equip future engineers with this strong foundation in systems-level design, Texas Instruments (TI) has announced its newest educational solution for the university classroom, the TI Robotics System Learning Kit (TI-RSLK).

Engineering artist and designer creates a bigger 3D footprint

Engineering artist and designer creates a bigger 3D footprint
If you delve deeper into 3D printing of larger fine art sculpture pieces and specialist elements for the stage and theatre industry, you will find engineering artist and designer Richard Grant, who decided to take the plunge and build his own. For the x/y gantry, he used the drylin E linear robot from igus. Since completing a multi-disciplined engineering degree at Brunel, then a postgraduate in 3D printing at Stafford (1996), Richard Grant has been employing advanced technologies for his craft sometimes years in advance of it becoming mainstream.

Multi-legged robot replicates cockroach's running patterns

Multi-legged robot replicates cockroach's running patterns
When they turn up in pantries or restaurant kitchens, cockroaches are commonly despised as ugly, unhealthy pests. But in the name of science, Johns Hopkins researchers have put these unwanted bugs to work. In a crowded, windowless lab, scholars and students are coaxing the insects to share some crucial locomotion tips that could help future robotic vehicles traverse treacherous terrain.
