Without these sensors, industrial robots are a pile of scrap metal

chat nowrobotJust in time, Microsoft’s Xiaoice, Google Assistant, Apple’s Siri, Amazon’s Alexa, Facebook’s voice chat robot… American technology giants have already begun to compete in this field. Most chatbots are nothing more than chatting and chatting with people, but recently, Facebook’s two AI chatbots have developed a unique language that humans cannot understand in the dialogue with each other.

This caused countless people to exclaim, “Machine is gradually out of human control?”, “This is a bit like the movie “Terminator”.

In fact, the reason why humans are so afraid of Robots gaining self-awareness is not just because they are uncontrollable for the robots they create. If the robot only has the current level of intelligence, there are 10,000 ways for humans to eliminate the robot army.

What’s really scary is that robots don’t have the same mental model as ours. They have storage systems unmatched by humans, so once the intelligence of robots is turned on, their intelligence will grow exponentially, and may never even stop. Humans at that time were really just a bunch of ants to robots.

Regarding the “conspiracy to rebel” incident of chatbots, a calmer friend gave another view – this is just a bug in the program.

Regardless of whether robots pose a threat to humans, all kinds of robots areindustryApplication trends in production and daily life are inevitable. With the development of robotics, Industrial robots are no longer simple tools for carrying heavy objects. They can perform many delicate and complex tasks with an accuracy rate of up to 99%.

So, if one day, the human world is really controlled by robots, will we still have a way to resist? Here, the editor will teach you the best way to deal with the army of robots, that is – to remove its sensors.

We know that robots are generally composed ofmechanicalIt consists of four parts: body, control system, sensor, and driver. The sensor is the perception system of the robot and is one of the most important components of the robot. A variety of sensors with different functions can be reasonably combined to provide the robot with more detailed external environment information. A robot without sensors is equivalent to a human without sensory organs. Basically, it is a pile of scrap iron…

The key to the robot’s ability to have human-like perceptual functions and responsiveness is precisely due to the application of sensor technology. So, what sensors does a sophisticated Industrial Robot have?

Vision sensor

The vision sensor is like the eyes of the robot. When the robot is working, it uses the vision sensor to obtain information on the environmental objects, identify the objects, and detect the positioning of the objects, so that the robot can obtain the target position. Vision generally includes three processes: image acquisition, image processing, and image understanding. At present, the mainstream brands in the global visual sensor market include SICK, Pepperl+Fuchs, Siemens, Omron, RENYWELL, etc.

torque sensor

The torque sensor can be said to be the core component of the robot. It allows the robot to perceive the force and monitor the force on the robot arm. According to the data analysis, it can guide the robot’s next behavior, and realize the triggering, teaching or force control of the industrial robot. sanded. At present, the torque sensors in the high-end market are mainly European and American brands, such as Honeywell and Futek.

ranging sensor

When the robot completes a grasping position that needs to be grasped vertically, the vision system is usually blocked and cannot complete the identification. This requires a ranging sensor to assist positioning and guide the robot to complete the correct grasping.

Pressure Sensor

The pressure sensor can sense dynamic pressure. When the robot grabs an object, it is necessary to control the strength to avoid damaging the object. At this time, the feedback of the pressure sensor is needed to realize the tactile perception of the robot.

proximity sensor

Robots also need to sense the position of surrounding objects and keep a safe distance from them during the work process to ensure the safety of the operation process. Proximity sensors are used to detect the proximity of objects. They are generally divided into ultrasonic proximity sensors and infrared proximity sensors. Ultrasonic proximity sensors have a large range and can be used in mobile robots and mechanical grippers of large robots. The volume is smaller and is usually used for robot gripping.

Industrial robots can be used in many industries, and the sensors used in each industry are also quite different. For example, acoustic sensors, temperature sensors, speed sensors, etc. are also widely used in industrial robots. With the development and popularization of robot technology, there will be greater demand for sensors, and at the same time, more new sensors will be derived, which provides a blue ocean market with huge potential for many sensor companies!
