Robotics in the World of Automotives

As of for many years the automotive industry has been well known for its intensive use of industrial robotics. 


Since the implantation of the first industrial robots in the 1960s, a lot of things have changed. These days, the production lines need to be more efficient, flexible and precise. Many enhancements have been made on production lines over the last few years to help workers in their daily tasks.  the latest robotic applications in automotive manufacturing and here are the top 5 applications that grabbed our attention.


1) Robotic Vision
During the production of the 2013 Ford Escape, the company decided to introduce a robotic arm with "eyes". The laser and camera placed in an array on the robot wrist, are able to see exactly where to install the parts on the car body. By giving instant feedback to the robot; the windshields, door panels and fenders can be applied more precisely. The big innovation of this technology is that industrial robots are now able to put a proper…

The perfect computerised battery testing

Keeping the track of batteries can be difficult, especially when encountering continuously changing battery types and observing periodic maintenance needs. 


So To assist with all some of several manufacturers of battery analyzers are offering software to enable PC interface. While the PC is v helpful for battery service, the available software is often not refined enough to satisfy most market requirements.Software has commonly written into accommodate a broad range of applications, even though a customer may never use more than one function. 
BatteryShop has been designed to service cell phone batteries at storefronts, check batteries in large repair centers, assist in the scheduled maintenance of fleet batteries, and tend to engineers in research labs. Here are a few examples how the PC software can be used

Apart from our understanding the honk is usually meant for the driver of the vehicle in front. However, it is heard by everybody in the area, creating noise pollution. with the noiseless horn the sound directly reaches the target with no noise going into the surrounding environment.


The government is also planning to to reducethe noise level of horns on vehicles to under 100 decibels, a reduction of about 10% from the existing maximum permissible limit. As per Central MotorVehicle Rules, the noise range forhorns is currently fixed between 93 decibels (dB) and 112 dB. source-Toi
