At this year’s FIRA virtual event (December 8-10, 2020) Fixposition is showcasing the Vision-RTK sensor, furthering precise positioning and autonomy in the field of agricultural robotics.
Precision sensor supplier Micro-Epsilon has launched an active capacitive measurement system that incorporates a preamplifier within the sensor head to directly boost the signal. This provides end users with greater flexibility for cable routing and movement, especially in industrial automation, robotics, semiconductor production and machine building applications.
Providing the right vision sensor for robotic applications which provide maximum functional and operational flexibility combined with easy process integration has become an increasingly important focus for sensing and instrumentation specialists BAUMER.
A novel type of sensor has been developed by Australian researchers to measure and rectify the distortion of starlight caused by viewing via the Earth’s atmosphere, which should make it less complicated to explore the option of life on faraway planets.
UNSW engineers have invented a soft wearable device which simulates the sense of touch and has wide potential for medical, industrial and entertainment applications.
Velodyne Lidar, Inc. today announced two new generation YellowScan mobile mapping systems use Velodyne’s lidar sensors to help achieve the high precision and accuracy needed in aerial 3D mapping.
Grants worth millions of pounds have been awarded to researchers from the University of Huddersfield for a five-year research project that will expedite a new industrial revolution by creating novel methods for ultra-precise measurement on the nanoscale.
Picking up a can of soft drink may be a simple task for humans, but this is a complex task for robots - it has to locate the object, deduce its shape, determine the right amount of strength to use, and grasp the object without letting it slip.
West Virginia University's Duncan Lorimer might be the godfather of the fast radio burst, but a pair of international students has taken exploring these mysterious cosmic flashes to a new level.
Actuators that are capable of transforming several environmental stimuli into mechanical works have shown immense potential for designing smart devices like automatic Lab-on-a-Chip systems, soft robots, and micro-electromechanical systems (MEMS).
