These new systems come with a temperature-compensated force balance inclinometer, plus a power module and digital display. There's no need to convert from the inclinometer sine output to degrees, since the readout module supplies linearization. It comes in 5, 10, 15, 30, and 45-degree ranges. The DIS-7001 runs on 115V ac power, and the DIS-7012 on 10-28 VDC.
Festo's BionicKangaroo combines pneumatic and electrical drive technology, plus very precise controls and condition monitoring. Like a real kangaroo, the BionicKangaroo robot harvests the kinetic energy of each takeoff and immediately uses it to power the next jump.
