Springer Berlin Heidelberg , Berlin, Heidelberg About the Edition

The purpose of the book is to review the state of the art of different kinds of sensors, as they are developed and used in some research centers. Most of the topics of the book are treated in depth although there are some surveys and overviews with the aim of introducing new subjects to the readers. Since most of the topics treated are up to date research in sensorics, they provide a great deal of valuable information for researchers, designers and engineers. The book is organized in parts which deal with the following matters: Force and Torque Sensors, Tactile Sensors, Acoustic Sensors, Optical Sensors, Other Sensors and Applications.

As robots improve in efficiency and intelligence, there is a growing need to develop more efficient, accurate and powerful sensors in accordance with the tasks to be robotized.

This has led to a great increase in the study and development of different kinds of sensor devices and perception systems over the last ten years. NATO Advanced Research Workshop on Sensor Devices and Systems for Robotics ( Catalonia, Spain).

There is much more to this book than 'just sensors'. It treats complex situations with simplicity and depth. The author describes how you might decide upon a certain technique and then how to use the appropriate sensor or from the other angle, which sensor would work best and the unexpected accompanying pieces to ensure it, for example, his novel use of a guitar by: Advanced robotics' describes the use of sensor-based robotic devices which exploit powerful computers to achieve the high levels of functionality that 5/5(1).

Sensors for Robotics. Force Sensor Devices and Systems for Robotics book enhance the design of robotic applications by enabling advanced control technology. Force sensors provide a robot with haptic feedback, which allows for better overall performance.

This performance includes verifying grip forces, ensuring proper balance, and providing tactile feedback to an external source. Robot sensors, generally Sensor constitute robot’s window to the environment. A robot needs sensing to be an active participant in the environment.

Each sensor is based on a transduction principle, i.e. a conversion of energy from one form to another. Sensors measure a physical quantity, they do not provide Size: 2MB. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Robotic sensing is a subarea of robotics science intended to give robots sensing capabilities, so that robots are more human-like. Robotic sensing mainly gives robots the ability to see, touch, hear and move and uses algorithms that require environmental feedback.

Robotic solutions for these markets are ideally suited to operating in semi-structured environments that can capitalize on a robot’s ability to capture real-time visual and sensor information for its operator, and to perform repeatable operations within changing or.

This system could potentially replace the functions of the mouse, pen, and keyboard as input devices to the computer. The system could also be used as a general wireless 3D motion sensing device.

Industrial controllers or computers in control systems use data received from sensors to control or drive different equipment or systems by the use of actuators.

The actuators are electromechanical devices which can generate electrical, magnetic, pneumatic, hydraulic, optical or other forces to drive shafts, or movements of the controlled. A Guide to Sensors. A crucial aspect of any robotics project is the ability for the robot sense objects around itself, the environmental conditions, or its relative position.

A tactile sensor is a device that measures information arising from physical interaction with its environment. Tactile sensors are generally modeled after the biological sense of cutaneous touch which is capable of detecting stimuli resulting from mechanical stimulation, temperature, and pain (although pain sensing is not common in artificial tactile sensors).
