FUTEK partnered with The Robot Studio, a specialist in biometric robotic hardware, to construct a full functioning humanoid robot. There are over 60 of FUTEK's LSB200 Jr. Miniature S-Beam Load Cells in operation monitoring the robot's movements.
60+ Jr. Miniature S-Beam Load Cells(LSB200) with USB Solutions and SENSIT™ Test and Measurement Software
In 2012, The Robot Studio decided to replicate human mechanics by developing the most precise and complex mechanism - a humanoid robot.
While emulating the structure and geometry of human forelimbs, all bones, joints and connective tissue required force monitoring.
The Robot Studio employed FUTEK's LSB200 Jr. Miniature S-Beam Load Cell to audit the mechanical loads as the humanoid operated.
Being that size constraints were a challenge, the miniature load cell fit perfectly into the architecture of the design and delivered exact force measurements via USB Solutions.
These loads were streamed onto a PC and analyzed through FUTEK's SENSIT™ Test and Measurement Software.
