MOTION CONTROL/FLUID POWER: Two new non-rotating cylinder families, the FDF-09 and FDXS-09, from Fabco have compact design, double the thrust and are suitable for multi-axis assemblies and the design of robotic arms. Features include non-rotating design, magnetic pistons and rubber bumpers. Choose sleeve or ball bearings. Optional sensors mount in linear slots in the housing. Five bore sizes range from 10-32 mm with standard strokes up to 100 mm. Exact industrial interchanges are included.
When you think of the DARPA Robotics Challenge, you may imagine complex humanoid contraptions made of metal and wires that move like a Terminator Series T-90. But what actually happened at the much-vaunted event was something just a bit different.
Traditional dev kits are based on a manufacturer’s microcontroller, radio module, or sensor device. The idea is to aid the design engineer in developing his or her own IoT prototype as quickly as possible. A not-so-traditional IoT development kit released by Bosch aims to simplify IoT prototyping even further.
Focus on Fundamentals consists of 45-minute on-line classes that cover a host of technologies. You learn without leaving the comfort of your desk. All classes are taught by subject-matter experts and all are archived. So if you can't attend live, attend at your convenience.
