MiniONE Pro Overview

What is MiniONE Pro?

The compact and ultra-sensitive 6-axis force torque sensor with a signal noise of only 7mN is an impressive sensing system that has a range of applications in micro-robotics with haptic feedback. The low signal noise of the sensor ensures that the measurements are highly accurate and reliable, making it an ideal sensing system for applications that require precision and fine motor control. It is the smallest force torque sensor with integrated signal processing electronics and a 6 IMU.

MiniONE Pro is mechanically compatible with Mecademic Meca500 or Yaskawa MotoMINI, which are compact and highly precise robotic arms that are often used in micro-robotics applications. The combination of MiniONE Pro with these robotic arms enables telemanipulation, micro-polishing, and micro-assembly in various industries such as watchmaking, jewelry, and semiconductor manufacturing.

The haptic feedback provided by the force torque sensor allows the system or operator to feel the force and torque being applied by the robotic arm, making it easier to manipulate and control the micro-robotic tools. This feature is particularly useful in applications such as micro-polishing and micro-assembly, where the operator needs to have a fine level of control over the tools to achieve the desired results.

I work as a postdoctoral research fellow in orthopaedic engineering. I have built a custom rig that I was then looking for a multi-axial load cell that was affordable and that was easy to use. A fellow researcher in robotics recommended that I get in touch with BOTA Systems, a robotics company that also focuses on force sensing applications. I was immediately contacted by a BOTA representative, who promptly briefed me on a great range of load cells. They also met with me multiple times to help integrate the BOTA Medusa multi-axial load cell with my rig and existing code, custom design all required accessories. I was incredibly impressed with the "ease of use" of the highly integrated product, accessories, software and customer support, the incredible value for money and would highly recommend BOTA Systems force sensors and the team.

I used this sensor in a custom-built testbed for measuring wheel-soil interaction forces.
The sensor was easy to mount and use, and support from the team was excellent when I had software issues. It was easy to use the sensor with ROS, and the data quality was very good.
The sensor takes 30-45 minutes to warm up to a steady temperature, and force measurements drift with temp, so you have to turn on the machine well in advance of data collection. The cable that came with our sensor was also fragile and needed to have strain relief added.
