Service robots are widely used in various situations such as logistics / transport, security, cleaning, housework, hobbies / entertainment and care / assistance. Since service robots are used in a wide variety of situations, it is necessary to fulfil many requirements such as smooth communication with humans (HMI), ensuring safety and responding to changes in the real time. In service robots, the role of a sensor is very important. In this article, we will take a vacuum cleaner robots as an example.
Lubricant-refrigerant mixture breakdown causes sludge formation and other corrosive materials that will hinder the normal operation of compressor valves and control devices in refrigerant and HVAC systems.
The recently released Revolve hybrid microscope from Echo Laboratories – which has generated considerable interest because it combines the functionality
of both upright and inverted microscopes into one instrument – supports the use of Negative-Stiffness vibration isolation when the microscope is being used in vibration-compromised environments.
Since the release of the first commercial atomic force microscope (AFM) about 30 years ago, technology advances have steadily been implemented to improve their performance. Now, the most recent advance in ambient-temperature AFMs is making them more compact, portable and user-friendly, which is enabled by Negative-Stiffness vibration isolation.
