Industrial service robots gain more importance assisting human beings in growing variety of tasks ranging from simple repetitive tasks to more complex tasks in harsh environments.


TI’s service robots design resources help you design the next generation of humanoids. Humanoids typically use brushed DC (BDC), brushless DC (BLDC), and Stepper motors, controlled by TI’s embedded microcontrollers together with dedicated motor driver ICs; TI’s multi-cell battery solutions for charging, balancing, monitoring, gauging and protection guarantee the critical requirement for safety, lifetime and durability; TI’s sensors system, 3D machine vision system and wireless connectivity solutions help to build flexible and advanced HMIs. TI’s fully tested reference designs help you quick-start your own new humanoids design or retrofit.

TI reference designs demonstrate methods to quickly add innovative features to your humanoids:

  • High resolution and low cost 3D machine vision for location, mapping and gesture recognition
  • High efficiency and reliability servo motor drive for more precise, smooth motor drive and control system
  • Advanced HMIs technology with cost, performance and reliability optimized
