Robotics The Tech

About the Exhibition

Sensing

Learn about human and robotic vision systems, explore three modes of robotic sensing, and apply a robotic sensory more to a specific task.

    Fool the motion detector
    Robots can use ultrasound to "see" motion. Learn about the sensitivity and effectiveness of this type of detector and how it is used in a robot. Move slowly enough and you may fool this electronic "eye."

    Multiple Sensors
    Estimate the weight, temperature and magnetism of an object and compare your analysis with a robot's measurements of the same object. Explore how multiple sensing systems are used in some robots to increase the accuracy of identifying objects.
