Over 30% of the energy needed to operate buildings is lighting. Lighting has a short payback, so it is also the first aspect to examine when considering energy efficiency upgrades. The reliance on traditional lighting systems, which are not energy efficient, is taking a backseat, with many homeowners and building management teams preferring to use highly efficient LED lighting systems.
LED light fixtures offer pure and bright light with beautiful designs and unique styles that make them the best illumination fixtures for any area. Furthermore, when you choose a LED lighting system from one of the leading smart lighting system manufacturers, LED iBond, you can customize your fixture to create the ideal light for your needs.
According to LED iBond, “Light is a factor that can make or mar a space as it has the ability to exponentially transform a space,” and true to the words of the award-winning LED lighting manufacturer, LED lighting technology is the new hype in smart building, smart cities, homes, offices, healthcare facilities, and vertical farming among others.
Another reason residential, industrial, and commercial facilities use LED light technology is because, besides the primary purpose of lighting, the system also offers a wide range of other applications and benefits that traditional lighting systems are not capable of providing. Intelligent lighting systems are easy to control remotely using mobile devices and any other smart home device. Here is a look at some of the benefits of LED light technology.
Benefits of LED Lighting Systems
1. Longer lifespan
The lifespan of the LED light is far more superior compared to that of an average incandescent bulb, which can only last for close to a thousand hours. An average LED light provides you with an average of about 50,000 hours. The lifespan can go even beyond … Continue reading >>>
A robot is an automated machine that can perform tasks with little or no human assistance at a very high speed and is very proficient.
Evolution of robots
The first robot was made by George Devol in the year 1954 which was called Unimate. It was a commercial, programmable and digital robot which he later sold to General Motors and was used to lift very hot metals from die casting machines. Since then, robots have been constantly evolving leading to creation of different types with better artificial intelligence. Thanks to George Devol for inventing the first robot, we the future generation are having an easy time to get certain tasks done fast and proficiently.
Types of robots
- Industrial robots.
- Medical robots.
- Domestic robots.
- Military robots.
- Autonomous robots.
- Humanoid robots.
- Collaborative robots.
These are robots that are used in industries. Examples are articulated, cartesian, cylindrical.
- Articulated- they have design features and can have two or more rotary joints (axis) and they usually have four to six axes.
- Cartesian/gantry robots/rectilinear robots- they have three linear joints which tend to use the coordinates of the Cartesian plane (x, y, z). They also have a wrist that is attached to allow for rotational movement therefore delivering linear motion along the joint.
- Cylindrical- it has a prismatic joint that connects with one rotary joint at the base which uses a rotating motion along the joint.
These are robots used in medical sciences and are mostly telemanipulates and are mostly surgical robots. The most recently developed medical robots are;
- Xenex Germ-Zapping Robot.
- The CyberKnife Robot.
- The Tug Robot.
These are robots that are used to perform household chores. Examples are floor cleaners, lawn mowers, swimming pool cleaners,
- Floor cleaners- vacuum cleaner is the first to do household chores.
