Abstract

Linear diodes, optical imaging and fiber-optic bundles coact to make a crash-resistant detector for the motions and forces common to robot-positioning arms and finger assemblies. A sensing system which is more convenient, less critical to adjust and less costly than those known is suggested. The system uses linear diodes (lateral diodes), optical imaging and a light source (either infrared or small light sources as fiber-optic bundles. )
