Fast Forward for Image-Based ID Readers

POSTED: 10/11/2011

VSoC-powered readers increase read rates, reduce downtime and speed setup In the not-so-distant past, manufacturers using laser scanners and conventional area-scan image based readers had to put up with inherent technology limitations. Laser scanners, for example, have a hard time reading barcodes through plastic shrink-wrap, barcodes printed on flexible

Precise Control of Force

POSTED: 07/09/2008

Systems developed by Sandia's Intelligent Systems and Robotics Center (ISRC) often require precise control of the forces applied. Developers add load cells to robots to sense force and moment. These load cells are called six-axis force-torque sensors because they must accurately and separately measure all

Rugged Mobile Robotic Test Bed Platform for Military Surveillance and Reconnaissance Missions

POSTED:

In response to the Department of Defense's Joint Program Office for Unmanned Ground Vehicles' request to develop a prototype of a mobile robotic test bed platform for military surveillance and reconnaissance missions, Sandia's Intelligent Systems and Robotics Center (ISRC) developed SARGE (the Surveillance And Reconnaissance Ground Equipment robot). This prototype

Rapid Response Investigation of Robots for Post-Accident Safety Assessment

POSTED:

When conditions are too dangerous for people after mine disasters, robots can go safely where people cannot to locate survivors, check the atmosphere, or assess the condition of the mine. That is the premise of the US Department of Labor's Mine Safety and Health Administration (MSHA); and
