Backlash and the Future of Robotic Applications | Panel

Gear Backlash in Robotics Applications: The search for flexibility, performance, and economical systems

Is the future of gear drives in robotics to grow exponentially or is it doomed because of the intrinsic problems with backlash, wear, unpredictability, size, and high cost? Over the past few months, we conducted research and interviews with leaders in the robotics and gear drive industry to understand the challenges and opportunities with robotics applications.
