Fastgrowing tactile sensing company Renishaw Electric is at the sharp edge of advancing automation in metalcutting, but at the same time is developing a submicron repeatability probe which follows profiles at high speed, and also has its eye on the market for highprecision assembly robots.
Detection of toxic gases in an industrial environment is a growing problem. Laboratory analysis of samples involves delay, and the most suitable equipment would be continuously operating personal monitors. At present this can rarely be achieved, but research on metal oxide sensors points to the...
Various types of sensors such as tactile, proximity and visual, have been developed to give robots flexibility and adaptability. It is argued that for complex tasks the individual sensors need to be integrated into a total system. In this article a variety of sensors developed by the authors are...
Starting life as a supplier of synchro and servo components to the military industry Moore Reed have in recent years increased their sales significantly to the commercial market. Now they are looking to the robots industry as a market for further increasing this share.
Vision sensor for arc weld seam tracking uses a projected line of light scan from a high power infrared LED, which is detected by a twodimensional positionsensitive photocell. It is compact enough to be mounted on a robot hand and works well on surfaces of poor reflectivity.
Professor Kessis and his colleagues are developing a sixlegged walking robot using distributed control of leg movements.
Controlling the quality of products can lead to improved profitability. Many of the techniques associated with improving both of these aspects will be discussed at the forthcoming 6th International Conference on Automated Inspection and Product Control to be held at the Albany Hotel, Birmingham,...
