For some reason I thought this piece was going to be on giant robots that can transform into planes (Robotech). Certainly, motion controllers would apply there as well.

Motion control becoming more important

NO RATINGS
Motion control seems to be an area of increased focus for vendors and developers alike. It's becoming an increasingly important thing for designers to know how to work with, and also is becoming more of a key feature of connected automation and robotic systems. The wireless capability of Roboteq's controller is an especially important feature, as it allows for more freedom of movement and a wider range of applications.
