A positioning sensor is a sensor that measures the position of a target object and converts the position information of the object into digital information and conveys it.
There are two types of sensors: contact sensors, which grasp the position of an object by touching it, and non-contact sensors, which grasp the position of an object by emitting a laser beam toward the object. There are several types of non-contact types other than lasers.
Some displacement sensors that measure displacement, such as the amount of movement of an object, are also used as positioning sensors.
Positioning sensors are used in all aspects of life, including medical, industrial, robotic, and infrastructure applications.
Positioning sensors can acquire one-dimensional, two-dimensional, or three-dimensional positional information, depending on the sensor. They must be used in different ways depending on the situation in which they are used.
Examples of the use of positioning sensors are as follows:
This section describes the typical principles used in positioning sensors.
This type of sensor measures position by direct contact of a part called a contactor with an object. This type can be used when the object is an individual.
