Magnetic Encoders Support the Stabilisation Control of a Self-Balancing Two-Wheeled Robotic Vehicle

In the design of a self-balancing two-wheeled robotic vehicle, accurate high-speed measurement of angular rotation is a key requirement. Furthermore, the minimisation of component weight and size is an equally vital consideration. Engineering students at Tokyo Denki University found the answer in the RM08 rotary magnetic encoder, from Renishaw’s associate company, RLS. […]

Magnetic Encoder ICs Flexibly Rethought

The iC-PVS from iC-Haus is a universal Hall sensor IC for incremental or absolute position detection with a battery-buffered 56-bit position counter. For higher resolutions and highest requirements concerning signal conditioning, it can be easily expanded with the iC-TW29 as an interpolator IC thanks to the Sin/Cos interface. […]
