This case study focuses on a micromouse – a small autonomous robot which runs through a designated maze. There are several annual international contests for students and robot enthusiasts challenging them to improve the intelligence and speed of their robots. Robot mice are advanced, custom built devices that are built to milimeters and grams precisely, reach speeds above 3 m/s and are able to solve the maze in just 5 to 7 seconds.

RLS magnetic encoders are used because of their miniature and lightweight design and their top performance in accuracy and high speed feedback.

Traditional optical encoders are essential components in motion control systems. However, for
reliable operation it is necessary to protect them from harsh environments. This limits the diversity
of applications where encoders can be deployed and can add substantial cost – until now.

Developed by RLS d.o.o., a new line of high-performance magnetic encoders provide many of the
features of optical encoders but without increased robustness.

RoLin™ is a component level encoder system consisting of an RLM readhead and MS magnetic scale or MR ring. It has been designed for embedded motion control applications as a position control loop feedback element.


The actuator is a periodically magnetised scale or ring with a pole length (P) of 2 mm. Radial or axial reading of the ring is possible.
