Embedded miniature photoelectric distance sensors provide anti-collision protection during automated production

During automated production of electronic equipment, compact multi-finger robot grippers transport parts between operations. In the event of a malfunction or an unplanned human intervention, there’s an unacceptable collision hazard; designers insist on an overriding anti-collision system. Miniature distance sensors, embedded in the outward-facing surfaces of the gripper jaws, monitor the position of potential obstructions…
