What's trending on DoF this week? Another robotic project completed with the help of the pros, new video on how to program using the Wrist Camera, find out how to add limits to operator variables on UR, start measuring the size of objects with the Gripper, and much more. Get the latest news from automation pros!

Cobot Application With Robotiq's FT Sensor

Great example on how this student was able to finally complete his project with the help of the pros. He is inserting a gauge in an engine using a camera for guided vision as well as Robotiq's Force Torque Sensor to fit the gauge. He is now able to find the hole precisely and enter the gauge easily. Special thanks to Matthewd92 and Loïc who helped out! Get a look inside Ashiro's project
