The SpiderCam is a cable robot, which consists of a mount, 8 cables connected to 4 winches, and a controller. The winches cause the mount to fly by increasing and decreasing the cable lengths. The mount is supplied with power and data transmission by cords inside the cables. The SC is controlled via CAN-Bus. It needs position changes as control input and delivers absolute positions based on the internal cable length measurement. The Spidercam can load 150 kg of equipment.
Designed to monitor the whole sky for signs of meteors, which can be traced back to their cometary origins, the CAMS project has recently received a big upgrade to its detection and visualization pipeline — with the SpaceML project bringing citizen scientists into the mix.
Developing a tool that evaluates button and switch devices from both hardware (through physical input) and software perspectives is the next logical step in the evolution of device testing automation.
Detecting inconsistencies in device behavior offers insights into how to improve user experience. using a high-speed camera, this use case deep dives into device response time measurement using a black-box approach that replicates real-world touchscreen usage.
