Electric Motor and Sensors

Electric Motor is used to actuate and move something in a robot. There have different kind of parts of a robot, like its wheels, legs, tracks, arms, fingers, sensor turrets, camera, or weapon systems. Sensors are used to detect distance, temperature, light, colour etc. Sensors have a huge role to make a robot advanced.

Motor types-

There are different types of motors like AC motor, Brushed DC motor, Brushless DC motor, Servo motor, Stepper motor, DC linear Actuator, etc.

Sensor types-

Sensors are applying in robotics to estimate a robot's condition and environment. After taking the information those signals are passed to a controller to enable appropriate behaviour. There is some example of sensors are Light sensor, Sound Sensor, Temperature Sensor, Contact Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Distance Sensor, Pressure Sensor, etc.
