While it was released already two years earlier in other countries, in June the movie Proxima finally came to the theaters in Germany. High time to mention that this movie probably marks the yet most prominent, blank public appearance of Synapticon technology. The exoskeleton Eva Green is wearing in this scene, is real equipment used at ESA, designed and built by SpaceApplications using Synapticon SOMANET modules in 2015.
Back then, SOMANET was a tool box of hardware and software modules and OBLAC was a cloud-side development environment for distributed control systems. Basically a Swiss army knife for advanced mechatronic engineers. The exoskeleton features several control nodes made from the SOMANET modules COM EtherCAT, Core C22 and Drive DC100. The latter was the first-ever motor power stage module offered by Synapticon, introduced in 2012.
We’ve come a long way since then, with integrated motion control products that lead the market and serve the most ambitious robot and machine designers in the world.
