Magnetic Sensors Make Multi-Axis Joints Suitable for Humanoid Robots

igus robolink, a company that develops multi-axis joints to be used in humanoids and light automation applications, has introduced a device that couples polymers displaying high performance rate with technology that provides efficient controls.

igus's Multi-Asix Joints

The joints that will be used in robots will provide flexibility of design. The drives and control panels are no longer connected to the robotic components that provide movement. The integrated magnetic sensors help measure the positions of the angle of the joints so that the robot can learn movements without having additional software integrated into it.

The multi-axis joints are light and do not need lubricants to facilitate movement. These are at present being used for applications underwater but clients are testing to see if they will work in chemicals using beta testers provided by the company.
