Tech for Autonomous Systems – Advanced Interaction Capabilities III

Actuators technologies Movement, and its subsets of exercising pressure, shifting weight and balance, have been accomplished through mechanical systems usually controlled by electronics. There are linear and rotary actuators, some using purely mechanical means others a mixture of mechanical and fluid power. Micro movements have become possible using micro-electromechanical systems. …

4D digital camera for robotic vision

Researchers at Stanford Computational Imaging Lab have developed a 4D camera to help autonomous vehicles and more generally robots to assess their environment. The 4D refers to the fact that the system is able to capture an image (2D) creating various focus planes (3D) using light field technology and providing …
