Robotics

Traditionally, mechanical engineers created machines with many working parts powered by some sort of energy, whether that be steam or electricity. Mechanical Engineers also play a part in the design and production of robots. This important field involves a blend of many different engineering skills, including electrical and software engineering, as they design robots with the ability to automate themselves. Learn more about this fascinating and ever-growing field.

When Can I Buy a Robot for my Home?

You must have seen them in movies. You must have read about them in novels. They were fictitious, but currently live. Who are we speaking about? Indeed the humanoid robots! Yes, they are ready to work for you as your servant! Read on to learn more about the Honda Asimo and other robots….
PID Controller Tuning; Major Tuning Methods in Robotics

PID Controller Tuning; Major Tuning Methods in Robotics

PID loop tuning is a programming method that allows a user to vary any combination of three variables to produce the desired effects within a closed system. Here we will discuss common forms of PID tuning as well as situations in which no PID is needed.
What to Do with Used Industrial Robots?

What to Do with Used Industrial Robots?

After a robot has outlived its normal utility, its disposal becomes a challenge for the enterprise using it. Resale, sending to a scrap yard, using it for land-fill, and recycling are some of the options available for decommissioned robots.
