Servo (servomechanism)

A servo is a type of motor that is used to control the position of an object. It is a closed-loop control system that uses feedback to control the motion of an object. The feedback is used to compare the actual position of the object to the desired position. The difference between the two is … Read more


Pneumatics is a branch of engineering that uses compressed gases to power machines and tools. Pneumatic systems are used in a variety of applications, including manufacturing, construction, and medicine. Pneumatics is based on the principle of using compressed gas to create force. When a gas is compressed, it creates pressure. This pressure can be used … Read more


A sensor is a device that detects and responds to some type of input from the environment. The input can be light, sound, heat, motion, pressure, or any other form of energy. The output is usually a signal that is converted into a form that can be read by a human or a machine. There … Read more

Autonomy as a service

Autonomy as a service is a type of robotic technology that enables machines to operate independently, without the need for human intervention. This type of technology is often used in industrial and commercial applications, where it can help to improve efficiency and productivity. Why is autonomy so important? There are many reasons why autonomy is … Read more

No-fly zone

A no-fly zone is an area in which aircraft are not allowed to fly. No-fly zones are typically imposed by a country or international organization in order to prevent hostile aircraft from entering or attacking an area. What happens if you fly in a no-fly zone? If you fly in a no-fly zone, you may … Read more


A moonshot is an ambitious, long-term project that is often characterized by a high degree of risk and uncertainty. The term is often used in the context of technology development, where a moonshot can refer to a project that has the potential to radically change the status quo. Moonshots are often the domain of large … Read more

Degrees of freedom

Degrees of freedom (DOF) is a term used in various fields, often in mechanics, to describe the number of independent parameters that define the configuration of a system. For example, a rigid body in three-dimensional space has six DOF because the body can be independently translated in three orthogonal directions and rotated about three orthogonal … Read more

Object recognition

Object recognition is the ability of a robot to identify objects in its environment and to track them over time. This is a critical ability for robots that must interact with their surroundings, and it enables them to perform tasks such as fetching and delivering objects, avoiding obstacles, and so on. There are many different … Read more
