COLLINS, J.E.T.  e  BRIGHT, G.. Nintendo Wii remotes provide a reconfigurable tool-changing unit with an automatic calibration capability. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2014, vol.25, n.2, pp.135-147. ISSN 2224-7890.

Modular machines within the reconfigurable manufacturing paradigm require auxiliary modules to enhance the system's capability. A tool-changing unit was developed as one of these auxiliary modules. The unit had to be able to adapt itself efficiently to changes in the configuration of the machine it was servicing. This necessitated the development of a realtime 3D tracking system in order for the unit to sense alterations in the position of the spindle to which it was delivering tools. An economic positioning system was produced using Nintendo Wii remotes. This paper presents the development, implementation, and testing of this positioning system.
