Hi, I am building a robot that needs to sense heat from about 5 cm -10 cm away. All I need the sensor to do is when it detects something that is higher than about 35 Celsius to 45 Celsius I need it so say so. Then I will be able to execute something else. I don't know what would be the best sensor to do so. I have looked at thermal cameras, and it seems very hard to code, but I'm not sure if a sensor like DHT11 would be able to sense the heat from a distance. I would like some help to know what the best sensor would be to use.

What is the best industrial robotic arm that can operate in a high vacuum environment (chamber) with a reach up to 72"? A couple of additional details: To function correctly it must be an anthropomorphic arm on a movable platform which is a 7th axis. Our robots must be able to operate at 10^-6 torr. There can be no petroleum products used in the robot. All greases must be replaced with vacuum grease like Krytox. Plastic materials are not good in a vacuum as they will outgas and become brittle/break. They also outgas chemicals that can destroy adhesion of our films. The payload is about 35 pounds. We use mesh files that describe X, Y and Z coordinates with and IJK vector for pointing at the substrate we are coating. We prefer no Teflon as it grows under vacuum and shrinks in atmosphere.

Magnesium plate and sheet is 33% lighter than Aluminum. Why have we not seen Magnesium used in EOAT? Lighter EOAT means heavier payloads with the same robot, easier to machine saving on tooling costs and higher throughput meaning more parts per minute. Any help or insight would be appreciated.

Hi, I am trying to build a flippable workbench in my garage for my tools. The idea it to have the tools on a platform that can rotate 180 degrees and lock to be suspended under the table. I am trying to find a servo or step motor that is powerful enough to flip a 40-50 pound powertool, but am not sure where to start looking. I have been playing around with a prototype using Arduino, but wanted advice on how to make a heavy-duty one. Thanks, Brian 818-312-1472

Dears, My name is Albert Gili, I am a journalist and I work in a quiz show for the Spanish television called ‘BOOM’, produced by Endemol. My job consists in writing the questions and checking if they are correct and well formulated, in order to be as precise as possible and make sure we don’t spread wrong information. Sometimes, to do this work, I need to contact to some experts, such as you, in this case. THE WORD'ROBOT' WAS FIRST USED IN THE... A THEATER PLAY THE MANUAL OF A WASHING MACHINE A COMMUNIST TREATY THE SPEECH OF A NOBEL AN ADVERTISING AD A DA VINCI NOTEBOOK A ROMANTIC NOVEL A DECLARATION OF WAR We believe that the only correct answer is A THEATER PLAY and the rest of the options are false. Would that be correct? Thank you, in advance, for your time and help. Sincerely,
