Title:
Integrating ROS and Unity into the Axiom Proton arm
Date:
September 10th
6:30 PM (2 hours)
Location:
Axiom
Beaverton
Abstract:

Robert Toppel, president of Axiom Electronics, will give an update of their Proton robot arm. He will focus on integrating ROS and Unity. Unity supports an Inverse Kinematics method that starts posing at an end point. It contrasts with Forward Kinematics that starts at its beginning pose.

“It is often useful to look at the task of posing joints from the opposite point of view - given a chosen position in space, work backwards and find a valid way of orienting the joints so that the end point lands at that position. This can be useful when you want a character to touch an object at a point selected by the user or plant its feet convincingly on an uneven surface. This approach is known as Inverse Kinematics.” (1)

The Proton arm is a productization of Haddington Dynamics’ Dexter open source arm. Robert will share his experiences of taking an open source product to an industry grade release.

Dexter is an open source robot arm with and 1 kg payload capacity and 0.05mm reputability independent of load. See image (2). At the heart of the arm is an FPGA module that runs a real time physics engine, real time kinematics and operates at 276 GMACS. It eliminates the need for controller racks that are part of other high precision, high performance arms.

Title:
Electrical Power Metrolgy, Smart Grid, and the Role of National Measurement Institutes NO REGISTRATION REQUIRED
Date:
August 28th
11:45 AM (1 hour)
Location:
825 NE Multnomah Street
Portland
Abstract:

Measurements are necessary for the power system control, protection, and safe and reliable operation of the electric power grid. Electrical power metrology entails revenue metering, i.e. measurements of power and energy for billing purposes. Electricity meters are the most widespread electrical measurement devices, used for industrial, commercial and residential customers. Electrical metrology is an important enabling factor for equitable electricity trade inside and across national borders. The introduction of distributed and renewable energy resources and their impact on the electric power system, often referred to as Smart Grid, will be highlighted. Smart metering, power quality measurements, synchrophasor measurements, measurements in digital substations, and calibration methods for measurement devices with digital outputs and inputs will be addressed. With the significant role of power electronics in new Smart Grid developments, and the increased penetration of electric vehicles (EV) and the EV infrastructure in the power grid emphasizes the necessity for wide frequency band measurements of distorted waveforms. The digital measurements are continually improving. This is in turn pushing the boundaries of the high accuracy measurements needed for calibrations. New instrumentation requires new calibration methods. The role of National Measurements Institutes in providing the highest accuracy calibrations, measurement standards and traceability to SI units is essential and will be discussed.
