Application of sensor technology in industrial robots

Robotics combines the knowledge of many disciplines such as mechanics, electronics, sensors, computers, artificial intelligence, and many of today's cutting-edge technologies. With the rapid development of information technology and advanced manufacturing technology, the depth and breadth of the development of intelligent manufacturing equipment in China is increasing.

In the field of intelligent manufacturing equipment in China, the intelligent manufacturing equipment industry system represented by new sensors, intelligent control systems, industrial robots and automated complete sets of production lines has taken initial shape, and a number of major intelligent manufacturing equipments with intellectual property rights have achieved breakthroughs.

According to the data analysis of the intelligent manufacturing equipment field last year, the sales revenue of some industrial automation control equipment industries such as industrial automation control systems and instrumentation, CNC machine tools, industrial robots and their systems in 2012 has been very good. However, although the results are good, the robot-related field in this industry, as an emerging industry that is being cultivated and grown, is still insufficient in terms of development results. From the integration analysis in 2012, China's intelligent manufacturing equipment industry still has outstanding problems, mainly reflected in: weak technological innovation capability, core technologies such as new sensing and advanced control are subject to people; weak industrial base, high-end and special sensors, intelligent instruments The market share of instruments, automatic control systems, high-end CNC systems, and robots is less than 5%.

However, the good news is that with the promotion and application of sensor technology, the development of robots has also received much attention. At the same time, due to the advancement of sensor technology, the development of industrial robots has been supported.

The sensor has made great contributions to the rapid and orderly development of the Chinese robot industry. The sensor is used to detect the working state of the robot itself, and the core component of the robot intelligently detecting the external working environment and the state of the object. A device or device that can be measured and converted into a usable output signal according to a certain rule.

For an example in use. In order to detect the working object and the environment or the relationship between the robot and the robot, a tactile sensor, a visual sensor, a tilt sensor (or a tilting module), a force sensor, a proximity sensor, an ultrasonic sensor and an auditory sensor are mounted on the robot, which greatly improves the robot. Work conditions, enabling them to do more complex work. Similarly, in order to achieve autonomy in complex, dynamic and uncertain environments, researchers in various countries have gradually combined sensors of different functions such as sight, hearing, pressure, thermal and force sensors. The robot's perception system is formed to provide the robot with more detailed information about the external environment, which in turn causes the robot to respond to the external environment changes in real time, accurately and flexibly.
