Tropicalization Services

Tropicalization, a historical know-how with us from the conventional machine tool to the most singular equipment.

TC all-climate treatment service

This is the standard treatment suitable for: corrosive environments with oil and solvent splashes, climates at all latitudes with relative humidity up to 98% at a temperature of -80 to 140°C, without large variations in these which can cause strong condensation or even water run-off.

This makes the treatment suitable for tropical and equatorial areas if the equipment is placed in adequately ventilated industrial premises. The insulating materials are selected for their high electrical, dielectric and mechanical performance. The material enclosures receive a phosphate protective coating or a galvanic treatment.

Example: A product exposed outdoors in France will be treated with TH, whereas a product in a ventilated and air-conditioned room in Senegal will be treated with TC, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Example of singularity,    
if you notice any of the following, it may be a sign that  camera are not more self-calibrating :

-The robot limps or stumbles more than usual.
-The robot runs into obstacles that it has successfully avoided in the past.
-The robot has more difficulty on the stairs than usual.

Equipped with original manufacturer’s test benches and the skills of manufacturer-trained technicians with knowledge of your products’ every detail, the repair center is your one-stop shop for all repair, standard exchange and upgrade needs. Latest updates, original motors and CNCs, comprehensive functionality tests and CE approved safety tests are part of our expertise.

Our run on the electronic recalibration test bench is used to improve the mobility of the robot with joint and vision calibration. This FPGA recalibration can solve robot gait problems that cannot be solved by traditional self-testing, such as tripping on stairs or limping, by evaluating the current parameters and recalibrating on the FPGAs.

Dropping the robot and ordinary use over time can cause the robot’s on-board cameras to lose calibration. If the robot starts to run into obstacles that it had previously avoided, you can use the self-test to assess and resolve the camera calibration issues to restore perception accuracy, but if this does not solve your problem we will reprogram the vision FPGA for optimum calibration. After repair :

 

-Calibration of joints and camera verification.
-The joint calibration and camera verification mode tests and recalibrates the whole system.
-Load cell sensor for hip and knee joints.
-Joint position sensor for the hip and knee.
Basic verification of all on-board cameras.
-The calculation of new calibrated intrinsic and extrinsic.

 


Here is an example of integration,  Boston- based equipment Dynamics Robot Spot®, one of our first realizations was a nacelle equipped with a multi-shot launcher of rubber bushes (Flash-ball) with thermal camera and THD camera, 200x zoom, rangefinder and laser tracking (AIFM) for professional use, deterrent, very effective by firing universal caliber rubber cartridges. Sighting, accurate up to 175 meters with a tank of 24 rubber cartridges. Energy 476 joules, kinetic energy: 9.32 joules/cm2, speed: 658 km/h, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Advising Services 

ValorConseilCalvados® assists you in your Safety/Security, Intellectual property, Regulations, compliance process for autonomous mobile systems

Don’t hesitate to contact us (luis.nobre@valor.pro)

The operation of unmanned aircraft is covered by Implementing Regulation (EU) 947 on rules and procedures for the operation of unmanned aircraft. This regulation describes in particular the requirements associated with this operation around the following themes:

  • Operating procedures
  • aircraft eligible for open category operation,
  • Requirements related to the pilot’s training
  • Requirements related to the pilot’s qualifications,
  • Responsibilities of the operator and the pilot.

The requirements for aircraft operating in the open category are also described in Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 945 on unmanned aircraft systems and third-country operators of unmanned aircraft systems. In particular, it defines the classes C0 to C4 of UAVs that may be operated in the open category. These classes are dependent on the maximum permissible mass of the aircraft, among other things (but not exclusively). In simplified terms, the requirements are all the more It is important that the drone is heavy or operated close to the living.


 

Here is an example of our expertise, (Design, Operation, Intellectual property, Regulations, Safety) the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGAC ) authorizes La Poste Group to implement and develop the project for the design and production of drones. With our technology-qualified solutions, we offer a tailor-made drone, quickly functional for optimum use.

Example (GoPro KARMA, Tropicalization, Dev.SDK, DJI Parrot…)


Here is an example, we are solving the pairing problem between the Drone Karma® and the GoPro® Controller, which GoPro® can’t solve the problem without returning the KARMA® equipment to the factory to take the motherboard back to the production floor, but GoPro® has sold its entire drone production line; without defending them, it’s not in bad faith that they can only answer in the negative. We use the tools that were used on the production line with all their programming for the production of the KARMA®, the most important thing is to have one of the parametric controllers of the former Karma® production plant used at the end of the line allowing us to do parametric tests, functional tests, dynamic tests, to test, to program all the controllers and to validate the whole product, don’t hesitate to contact us.

We have created a universal gimbal for GoPro® KARMA®. We are constantly improving drone functionality for enterprise applications. We are also finding new ways to jointly develop solutions that open up new applications for drone technology, don’t hesitate to contact us.


Another classic example,    is the tropicalization for the African continent of the DJI® Mavic 3®, Inspire 2® in its all versions, typically to cope with very destructive saline humidity, fully protected against water, sand, dust. Protected against water jets from all directions with a hose. Without this type of protection the drone in this context has a flight time before dropping inexorably under 5 minutes with the added effect of extreme corrosiveness, don’t hesitate to contact us.


Obviously the example development of customized applications on manufacturer SDKs, allowing code to be executed directly on the drone, you will be able to have specific programs for custom autonomous flight missions and thus push the limits of your flying tool by accessing sensors, connectivity interfaces and autopilot functions. This gives the possibility to create mobile applications. You will be able to act on all the on-board features. Our expertise in the engineering of on-board equipment for UAV/UAS drones, for example, is helping dozens of leading companies and hardware developers to offer new and unique solutions in the sector, don’t hesitate to contact us.

Tropicalisation, un savoir-faire historique.

Tropicalisation, un savoir-faire historique chez nous, de la machine-outil conventionnelle à l’équipement le plus singulier.

Service de traitement tout climat TC

Il s’agit du traitement standard convenant aux : ambiances corrosives avec projections d’huiles et de solvants, climats sous toutes les latitudes avec humidité relative jusqu’à 98% pour une température de -80 à 140°C, sans grandes variations de ces derniers qui peuvent provoquer de fortes condensations, voire même, des ruissellements d’eau.

De ce fait, ce traitement convient aux zones tropicales et équatoriales si le matériel est placé dans des locaux industriels suffisamment aérés. Les matières isolantes sont sélectionnées pour leurs hautes performances électriques, diélectriques et mécaniques. Les enveloppes matérielles reçoivent une couche de protection phosphatante ou un traitement de galvanisation.

 

Exemple : Un produit exposé à l’extérieur en France sera traité TH alors qu’un produit dans un local aéré et climatisé au Sénégal sera traité TC, n’hésitez pas à prendre contact.
