Compact rotary position sensor can be used in humanoid robots Andy Pratt April 16, 2015 Sensors, Wearable Claimed to be the world’s smallest rotary position sensor, the SVM4 sensor at 4.0 x 4.5 x 2.0mm is approximately an eighth of the size of the company’s previous position sensor the SV03. It exhibits a linearity of ±2% and suits a variety of space-constrained applications such as finger-joint controllers in humanoid robots or to provide angular control in compact spaces such as in radio-controlled model and game console controllers, as well as wearable devices such as headsets and hearing aids or as a lens/iris feedback sensor in compact digital cameras. The effective rotational angle is 240° and with a useable temperature range from – 40 to +85°C can be used in most operating environments. Mass production is scheduled to commence during August 2015. http://www.murata.com WEARTECHDESIGN.COM – Latest News/Advice on Technology for Wearable Devices Weartechdesign is unlike any other website currently serving the technology for wearable devices.
