  • Publication number: 20210213621
    Abstract: This disclosure describes systems, methods, and devices related to robotic drive control device. A robotic device may receive an indication associated with pressing an actuator on a handheld device, wherein the handheld device controls a movement of an end effector of the robotic device. The robotic device may record a home location associated with where the actuator was pressed in space. The robotic device may determine an orientation of the handheld device. The robotic device may detect a movement of the handheld device from the home location to a second location in space. The robotic device may cause the end effector of the robot to move in the same orientation as the handheld device from a stationary position that is associated with the home location while continuing to move the end effector even when the handheld device stops moving at the second location.

  • Patent number: 10753869
    Abstract: In one aspect, embodiments disclosed herein relate to a lens-free imaging system. The lens-free imaging system includes: an image sampler, a radiation source, a mask disposed between the image sampler and a scene, and an image sampler processor. The image sampler processor obtains signals from the image sampler that is exposed, through the mask, to radiation scattered by the scene which is illuminated by the radiation source. The image sampler processor then estimates an image of the scene based on the signals from the image sampler, processed using a transfer function that relates the signals and the scene.

  • Patent number: 10569377
    Abstract: An apparatus, system, and a method for sharpening a cutting tool. The system sharpens cutting tools by manipulating the tool, measuring the three dimensional profile of the tool, and then grinding the tool. The apparatus consists of a robot capable of six degrees of motion, a gripping mechanism, a force-torque sensor capable of at least two directions of force and/or torque, a three dimensional scanning subsystem, a loading subsystem, a user interface, an initial orientation scan subsystem, a data processing and robot control subsystem, and at least one grinding system comprising two counter-rotating grinding wheels. The method automates the grinding process so that dull cutting tools can be placed into the loading system, sharpened by the system, and then ejected fully honed.
