Mouser Electronics, Inc. announced their new Robotics Technology site. Mouser’s new technology site provides developers with the resources they need to
learn about the latest advances in robotics technologies, and the newest components from Mouser Electronics for building robotics systems.
The new Robotics Technology site, available on Mouser.com, contains valuable information for developers interested in expanding their knowledge about robotics systems. The Technology section is segmented into four main categories. Overview discusses robotics in general and briefly discusses the main subsystems. Motor Control reviews the importance of how motors allow robots to perform physical tasks or travel. Sensors are used by robots to perceive the world around it and its own status. And MCU Control examines how microcontrollers run the robot and the importance of peripherals for management and communication.
The Articles section discusses topics such as the future of robotics, distributed control systems in robotics, and robots that very closely resemble humans. All articles offer an area to post comments and questions to facilitate further discussions on the topic.
The Featured Products section focuses on key products available from Mouser that speed and enhance the development of robotics systems. Products include the Texas Instruments Piccolo MCUs and Kits, Panasonic AN44183A Motor Driver, and the Molex Micro Lock™ 1.25mm pitch wire-to-board connectors.
