Service Robots

Challenge

Service robots assist human beings by performing a job that is dirty, dull, distant, dangerous or repetitive. They typically are autonomous and/or operated by a built-in control system, with manual override options. Typical usages include surveillance, inspection of industrial pipelines & sewers, power grid patrol, and autonomous guided vehicles in warehousing.

Service robots utilize miniature brush DC and brushless DC motors along with gearboxes to achieve high torque and encoders for positional feedback. Mini motors are able to fulfil the requirements of service robots for high torque, low moment of inertia, long battery life and the ability to work under load. This makes Portescap's brush DC coreless, brushless DC and DC servo motors the ideal motion solution as they are designed for long battery operating time with a lightweight package.

You can find Portescap motors in various Service Robotic applications, including industrial pipeline inspection, Sewer robots, Power grid inspection robots, Product inspection & quality check robots, Warehouse robots for pick & place, Miniature remotely operated vehicles, and humanoid robots.
