Tech for Autonomous Systems – Advanced Interaction Capabilities III

Actuators technologies Movement, and its subsets of exercising pressure, shifting weight and balance, have been accomplished through mechanical systems usually controlled by electronics. There are linear and rotary actuators, some using purely mechanical means others a mixture of mechanical and fluid power. Micro movements have become possible using micro-electromechanical systems. …
