Motion Control Components Application Exoskeleton! – Maxon Driven – Focus – 2020 Cybathlon!

Motion Control – Application Exoskeleton

“People with disabilities are only disabled if they come up against the insurmountable. But where do the obstacles in our everyday lives come from? From barriers in our minds” … Cybathlon founder Robert Riener.

motion control - Maxon

Taunton, MA — Motion Control Components Application – maxon’s DRIVEN magazine just released a special issue focusing on the 2020 CYBATHLON to be held in Zurich on September 19th and 20th.This is an event where people with physical disabilities compete against each other in obstacle courses with the use of assistance systems such as exoskeletons, bionics prostheses and motorized wheelchairs.

CYBATHLON is so much more than a competition, it is intended to serve as a platform between technology developers, people with disabilities and the public. It’s bringing everyone together under one roof to see where the challenges are and to work towards developing technologies that make everyday life easier for those with physical disabilities.

We, at maxon, are very excited to be a part of this special event. Our drives are perfectly suited for these application – they are precise, compact and extremely efficient. We look forward to seeing all the latest developments and working with the developers on the next generation of assistance systems.

Enjoy this latest issue and if you see a story you’d like to share with your readers, I’d welcome the opportunity to discuss this with you.

MCA Webinar – “Servo Solutions to Mobile Automation Challenges?” – Sponsored by Electromate

Electromate-Motion Control Webinar-MCA-Maxon Motor

Motion Control - Electromate-Logo

Woodbridge, Ontario, Canada — Join us for a FREE Webinar on April 21st at 11:00 EST. Register Today!

Register now to watch this webinar live or anytime after
April 21, 2015.

Presenter: Shane Beilke, Advanced Motion Controls: Executive Team – Product Strategy

With automation expanding out of the factory, machine builders are faced with a varying set of new challenges. Mobile platforms, such as unmanned systems, are expected to operate in extreme environments and carry their own power source; all while being light weight and compact.

To meet the current and future needs of the market, enabling technologies need to be applied and discovered. At the forefront of the enabling technologies are servo drive controllers.

Servo controllers not only make a robot or mobile platform move, they can also be solutions to the other design requirements. A servo is an integral component to any mobile solution and can help with power efficiency, communication, agility and dexterity. This webinar will touch on the challenges presented to robot designers and how servo drives can make them successful.
