We're back! From Germany, that is. And this year's Sensor + Test Trade Show not only marked FUTEK's 4th consecutive year exhibiting, but it was also a great opportunity to connect with our international representatives and customers.
Nuremberg, Germany is the epicenter of "state- of-the-art" technological businesses. So it is no surprise that the Sensor + Test Trade Show is consistently held here. During this three day endeavor, our team mixed and mingled with fellow test and measurement companies, sharing our latest projects and following up with theirs.
We were very excited to share our successes about the Mars Rover Curiosity expedition, as well as our partnership with the The Robot Studio
and their development of a humanoid robot. In fact, this partnership had the privilege of being the trade show's promotional artwork! (See the above banner)
Last year, The Robot Studio decided to make a statement in the world of humanoid robotics when they aspired to replicate the form and function of arguably the most precise, versatile, and complex mechanical system to exist: the human forelimb consisting shoulder, arm, and hand. The mechanical structure was constructed to emulate the material properties and geometry of human bones, joints, and connective tissue with unprecedented detail and authenticity.
But, for these refined feedback loops to breathe autonomy into the creation, they would need to be properly fed. The mechanical loads at play would need to be monitored with great sensitivity and quickness; thus came the implementation of FUTEK's LSB200.
