Paper Abstract

Over the past ten years a significant number of noncommunication uses for optical fibers have arisen. These applications involve the use of optical fibers in sensors. Special fiber optic sensors have also been developed for robotics. The aim of the paper is to present main directions of research on the development of optical fiber sensors for robotics and to show some of their applications. So far various types of optical fiber sensors of proximity, tactile, pressure, slip and colour have been developed. Some of the most interesting solutions are briefly described. Examples of other applications of fiber optics in the sensor system of robots are also given e.g. the use of a noncoherent optical fiber bundle for illumination of a scene, the use of coherent optical fiber bundles in vision systems for transmitting images from a robot gripper to a CCD image sensor placed out of the gripper. The presented review has been done on the basis of proceedings of many international conferences and symposia on robotics, optoelectronics and fiber optics and international journals.
