Scanning eye providing robot sight

Scanning eye providing robot sight
Robots must be equipped with sensors and software for three-dimensional vision in order to gain a spatial understanding of and precisely control objects in their environment. A research team at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS) has been developing and manufacturing micro-scanner mirrors, ‘MEMS’ scanners, which provide robots an ability similar to human vision needed to perceive objects and perform demanding tasks.

Redefining the competence of robots in industrial automation

Redefining the competence of robots in industrial automation
Serving as the cornerstone of industrial robots that are already in use across industries, the robotic tool changers are playing a pivotal role in improving their overall productivity and efficiency. With mass shifting of factories to Industry 4.0, adoption of robotic tool changers marks an important step for businesses toward achieving complete industrial automation.  By Santosh Kumar, Fact.MR

Drone technology meets manual soldering

Drone technology meets manual soldering
CURPAS and Ersa held two workshops 'drone meets soldering iron' with soldering and fight demonstration at universities. "Drones are safe and reliable when, among other things, all components are correctly soldered," said Jörg Nolte, Product Manager Soldering Tools, Rework and Inspection Systems, started his introductory lecture at the two workshops on manual soldering at the University of Zielona Gora in Poland and at the Technical University in Chemnitz.

Innovation in factory automation and robotics

Innovation in factory automation and robotics
Electronic Specifier’s Joe Bush caught up with Matthieu Chevrier, Systems and Application Manager, Texas Instruments (TI), to find out the role the company’s solutions are playing in helping to shape the factories of tomorrow. The catch-22 scenario for manufacturing is that times to market are shrinking, yet design complexity is increasing rapidly. Therefore, there are a number of emerging trends that are driving industrial processing. These are listed below.

Modern robotics playing a key role at Chernobyl

Modern robotics playing a key role at Chernobyl
The Chernobyl nuclear disaster has hit the news recently. April marked the 33rd anniversary of the catastrophic accident at the Soviet reactor, near the city of Pripyat, in modern day Ukraine, in 1986. In addition, a five-part historical drama starring Jared Harris, Stellan Skarsgård and Emily Watson, is also attracting plenty of viewers on Sky Atlantic.

Using modern robotics in the UK's nuclear clean-up operation

Using modern robotics in the UK's nuclear clean-up operation
Since the UK’s first power station was connected to the grid in 1957, the UK have been pioneers in nuclear technology. However, in those post-World War II days, the nuclear industry wasn’t designed with decommissioning in mind.

Microcontroller options for servo control in industrial robots

Microcontroller options for servo control in industrial robots
Renesas Electronics has introduced the RX72T Group of 32-bit motor control microcontrollers (MCUs) with dedicated hardware accelerator IP to perform the complex, high speed computations required for motor control in robots and other industrial equipment. The RX72T Group delivers performance, achieving an 1160 CoreMark score as measured by EEMBC Benchmarks (Note 1) - the highest level for a 5V MCU operating at 200MHz.
