Safety, hygiene, and accuracy are critical in food and beverage production and packaging. While sensors can help to achieve the necessary level of accuracy and efficiency, their requirements must extend far beyond the traditional specs of resolution and communication interface. Fortunately,
For maximum endurance and payload transportation capacity many UAV manufacturers turn to ICE (Internal Combustion Engine) powered flight. Electric propulsion has its place, but for maximum energy density batteries are not currently at the level of modern fossil fuels.
As collaborative robots expand into manufacturing environments the issue of safe motion continues to be a concern. Current design approaches involve adding force sensors, torque sensors, and sometimes proximity sensors. These adders along with more complex software control algorithms mitigate
