  • Patent number: 11478928
    Abstract: A computerized method for estimating joint friction in a joint of a robotic wrist of an end effector. Sensor measurements of force or torque in a transmission that mechanically couples a robotic wrist to an actuator, are produced. Joint friction in a joint of the robotic wrist that is driven by the actuator is computed by applying the sensor measurements of force or torque to a closed form mathematical expression that relates transmission force or torque variables to a joint friction variable. A tracking error of the end effector is also computed, using a closed form mathematical expression that relates the joint friction variable to the tracking error. Other aspects are also described and claimed.

  • Patent number: 11412648
    Abstract: A component mounting device is capable of mounting a component having a feature portion on an upper surface, on a board. The component mounting device picks up a component by a pickup member and loads the picked-up component on a temporary loading stand at an angle substantially equal to a target mounting angle to the board. Subsequently, the component mounting device images the upper surface of the loaded component by an upper imaging device and picks up again the loaded component. Then, the component mounting device mounts the component picked up again at the target mounting angle at the target mounting position corrected based on the positional deviation amount of the feature portion recognized by the upper surface image of the imaged upper surface.
