Self-Learning Control System Concepts Simplified Control system design and operation have improved with the advance of technology, but the basic premises of their functioning and optimization are necessary information for today's engineers. One can think of them as complicated feedback systems, with better brains than they had before.
Advantages of Robotics in Engineering Some advantages of robotics, like improved quality and quantity of production, are due to the mechanical nature and computerized control in industrial robotics technology. Other advantages of robotics are due to freedom from human characteristics like boredom and the ability to do dangerous tasks.
Introduction to Robotics Technology Robotics technology consists of the devices, components, designs, and programming that have gone into development of robots as we know them today. A large sector is industrial robotics, with many of the industrial robots being essentially a robotic arm. Read on for images and details about robots.
Basics of Robotics Robots have revolutionized the manufacturing industry by increasing the production rate and improving accuracy in production. Robots are being used in a variety of production units, especially automotive units, for carrying out drilling, welding, bolt tightening, etc.
Base Bodies of Robots: Cylindrical Base Robot Robots mounted on base bodies with revolute, cylindrical or spherical joints along with prismatic joints have better functionality and move with ease between the points in space. In continuation of the last series on Robots Base bodies here more involved robotic base bodies are discussed.
Spherical Base Robot: Construction and Workspace Spherical Base of the robots has just one replacement of the joint in the Cylindrical Base of the robots. The slider joint between the robot arm and the vertical member is replaced by a revolute joint. This change of a joint makes the spherical based robot more dexterous than cylindrical robot.
Base Bodies of Robots: Spherical Base Robot - Control and Application Spherical Robots are more involved in construction and more dexterous in working so is there control. The control of spherical robots requires three variables as Cartesian and Cylindrical robots do but the coordinate frame and there transformation is bit complex than other types.
Base Bodies of Robots: Articulated Robot Base Articulated Robots have all the joints of single axis revolute or rotary type. This chain of revolute joints provides greater freedom and dexterity in movement of the articulated robotic arm. SCARA and PUMA are the most popularly used articulated robots in assembly lines and packaging processes.
Articulated Robots – SCARA and PUMA Articulated Robots are no doubt the best robots for assembly and packaging applications. SCARA and PUMA are the most widely used articulated robots in industries for assembly and packaging and in academia for research and analysis. Read more about these variants of articulated robots SCARA and PUMA.
