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.
