I'm looking for a relative position sensor that could ideally track 3 other sensors relative to its own position and relay the information back to a smart device. In other words a device that could see if 2 other of the same device were parallel to it or a certain distance away

I am currently carrying out an school assignment at a production company. Products that they make are currently assembled manually. The company supplies many different variants of a product. I have to say which product is eligible for automatic assembly and why. This I did based on production volume and the difficulty of the assembly operations. Are there any other factors that I have to take into account?

In defining he restricted space of the robot (per R15.06, Part 2, 5.4.2 and 5.4.3), are the user-defined operating parameters in the control software consider the "safety-rated soft axis and space limiting". There is no safety plc monitoring these software limits.

My Name is Brian Jencks. I tutor students now in high school and get the question: “what should I do? And how should I do it?” I believe there is a future in robots that perform in hostile environments (collapsed buildings, nuclear waste sites, ocean depths, bomb threats, avalanches, outer space, burning buildings …). I can not find information on educational paths for such careers. Standard rap for engineers sure—but are there any specialized programs? (I am not asking about industrial robots—that ship has sailed.)

We need to upgrade some ABB robotic palletizers because they are near end-of-life & parts are difficult to find. If we install new robots,what safety features are required for existing work cells (that were installed in 1991)? We want to minimize the investment for fencing, conveyors, gates, etc. Q- if we replace robots, do we have to modify the 1991 safety enclosure / work cell?

Spent yesterday putting together 30 spider robots with Hitl Scouts(common walking toy you see blue body, gray legs). Expected failures, but got thrown for a loop when I handful of the kids had a different wiring design. Rather than one black and one red wire to connect to the terminals they had red, black, and two yellow. I got thrown into this with one days notice, so I have not even built one. When we had the expected robots that would not work, I traced most of the problems to misaligned gears. However, we did not know what to do with that yellow wire, and I could not find anything online while we were at the site. Found one online video assembly that had the yellow wires, but fast forward through the wiring… I’m trying to slow it down now. Can you help me with this, so maybe some of these girls will have robots that actually move?

Regarding creating a risk assessment. An operator is defined as: "all individuals that could be near or exposed to the robot system or cell." I already include risk assessment tasks for maintenance and general operators. Does that mean I should include risk assessment task mitigation for assembly/installation personnel also?
