  • Silicone sensors give robot fingers the human touch
    Robot arms that can feel as well as grip are on the way, but developing a bionic nervous system is expensive and complicated. Is there an easier, cheaper way to bring enhanced dexterity to an android's digits? One Hungarian start-up says there is.
  • Medical Device Link .
    Intelligent Robot Demonstrates Sight and Touch Lighter and more compact than its predecessor, an intelligent miniature robot also features improved wrist load capacity, repeatability, work envelope, and speed, according to its manufacturer. The LR Mate 200iC supports such intelligent functions
  • Force/torque sensors help industrial robots make the right moves
    Knowing what load levels robots exert is key to more repeatable, safer operation. Feedback from force/torque sensors (black cylinder mounted on arm end) gives robots the delicate touch needed for operations such as this camera function test. An industrial PC controls the robot and documents test
  • Pumping iron
    Artificial muscles mimic the action of their human counterparts to synthesize novel kinds of motion. The Humanoid robot can synthesize movements to about 1 of precision. Ten Festo Fluidic muscles go into each side of its torso and 16 more small prototype muscles in each wrist let the robot pick
  • How to Drive Resistive Tactile Sensors
    on the drive levels powering the sensor, but only within certain limits. Wikipedia page on tactile sensors in robotics, Thin-film force sensors are generically referred to as tactile sensors. The term comes from their frequent use as a means of sensing a nuanced or delicate touch as with a robotic hand
  • Product Technology News
    parameters and substrate-measurement locations can be preprogrammed. The results are displayed on the touch-screen monitor or transferred to a host computer in the fab. The system's fully integrated robot can interface with automatic guided vehicles to transport batches of substrates from one processing
