When a robot cell experiences unplanned downtime, John Bridgen’s first priority as Director of Customer Satisfaction at Precision Cobotics is finding out exactly what happened. Traditionally, this “root cause analysis” and subsequent debugging has required onsite visits and, at least initially, a degree of guesswork. Read on to learn how the process has been ameliorated.

Because it requires no battery that must be recharged or replaced, and because it requires no special wiring, such a sensor could be embedded in a hard-to-reach place, like inside the inner workings of a ship’s engine. There, it could automatically gather data on the machine’s power consumption and operations for long periods of time.

Microelectronics face a key challenge because of their small size. To avoid overheating, microelectronics need to consume only a fraction of the electricity of conventional electronics while still operating at peak performance. Researchers have achieved a breakthrough that could allow for a new kind of microelectronic material to do just that.
