PAL Robotics Integrates Magnetic Encoder Tech Into Robots to Achieve Balance

Humanoid robots are not yet as common as the public expects, partly because of the design challenges. Industrial automation tends to focus on machines for specific applications, while more general-purpose androids designed to operate in human environments must be perceptive, nimble, and safe. PAL Robotics SL’s REEM-C offers the desired level of utility, thanks in large part to components such as an RLS magnetic encoder.

In this free case study, readers can learn how Barcelona, Spain-based PAL Robotics built the REEM-C, a bipedal humanoid that is intended for research into technologies such as machine vision, artificial intelligence, and human-machine interaction.

This brief case study looks at the PAL Robotics’ requirements, its successful partnership with Renishaw, and how the magnetic encoders are responsible for efficient humanoid motion. As a result, the REEM-C platform is an important part of PAL Robotics’ portfolio of six service robots.
