The most efficient power delivery for robots that harvest, deliver and move

Almost everything around us is touched at some point by robots. There are robotic applications utilized in agricultural harvesting, warehouse inventory movement, campus delivery and consumer delivery. These robots are fueled by batteries, making power conversion efficiency – along with size/weight – critical. Power conversion needs become more and more challenging as load capacity, visual recognition and user functionality requirements further increase within the robotic application. This video shares how Vicor power modules support a component-based power delivery network to power motor drives and demanding CPUs. Each power module is optimized for high-efficiency, density and overall performance. Go to Vicor robotics solutions
