Now this looks amazing. Honeywell has introduced the world’s first commercially-available multi-axis electric motor – the
Spherical Motor. Watch the video.
Every complex motion in a UAV requires multiple motors to get the job done. Hoenywell has shifted everything we know about movement. Honeywell’s revolutionary spherical motor is one motor that does the work of several – improving the agility, performance and freedom to move efficiently. This ground-breaking technology is a tightly integrated motion control device that moves about two axes independently or simultaneously.
We expect to hear a lot more about this motor as OEMs figure out how they can be deployed. It looks rather disruptive.
Co-Founder AirInsight. My previous life includes stints at Shell South Africa, CIC Research, and PA Consulting. Got bitten by the aviation bug and ended up an Avgeek. Then the data bug got me, making me a curious Avgeek seeking data-driven logic. Also, I appreciate conversations with smart people from whom I learn so much. Summary: I am very fortunate to work with and converse with great people.
