16 February 1984 Reentrant-Loop Magnetic-Effect Proximity Sensor For Robotics
Author Affiliations +
We introduce a new proximity sensor and show its advantages for robotic assembly and manipulation of recessed parts. The sensor is based on the Reentrant-loop magnetic effect. We demonstrate experimentally that a simple embodiment of this sensor in a robot hand can detect position and orientation of marked objects within ri5 cm range, independently of the speed of approach.
