Robotic Fingertip More Sensitive than Human Touch
06/21/12 — Researchers at USC's Viterbi School of Engineering have created a robotic fingertip that is more sensitive to the touch than an actual human fingertip, an achievement which could greatly aid prostheses and advance artificial intelligence. Called BioTac, the tiny machine is a "new type of tactile sensor built to mimic the human fingertip, using a newly designed algorithm to make decisions about how to explore the outside world by imitating human strategies." The sensor was only rarely confused by pairs of similar textures, between which humans could not differentiate at all. USC Professor of Biomedical Engineering Gerald Loeb, who is…


Baumer Introduces GigE Trigger Device
03/23/10 — GigE Trigger device controls single or multiple cameras, eliminating the need for hardware triggers and PLC controllers by combining sensor information with machine vision applications. For automated industrial inspection machines and vision systems, Baumer has introduced the revolutionary GigE Trigger device designed to control single-camera or multi-camera setups, eliminating the need for hardware triggers and greatly simplifying cable requirements.  Featuring multiple input/output ports, these devices can eliminate the need for PLC controllers by combining sensor information with machine vision applications. With eight (8) inputs and eight (8) outputs, the GigE Trigger device provides many connections for integrating light barriers, encoders,…
