“Sid” is Si digital’s latest interactive remotely-controlled robotic arm. According to their website: “Sid was created as one of our many hack weeks here at Si digital. The underlying objective is always to create something as a team that we wouldn’t normally get the opportunity to do with client work. Ideally it will expand our […]

The Robot Torque Arm Calculator is intended to help you choose the right motor for each joint of your robotic arm. The torque (T) required at each joint is calculated as a worst case scenario (lifting weight at 90 degrees). Ensure your units are consistent. Most common units are kg-cm and oz-in. Take a look […]

This tutorial is intended to complement the Robot Arm Torque Calculator found in the Dynamic Tools section of GoRobotics. The equations used in the calculator to determine the torque required at any given lifting joint (raising the arm vertically) in a robotic arm are presented here. Note that the term “actuator” is used rather than motor because […]

Making a robotic arm is a good introductory project for those wanting to get started with robotics. A simple robot arm can be straight forward to build and would require hobby servo motors to actuate each joint, a control system such as the Arduino, and a power source. Nevertheless, one of the most difficult aspects of such a project […]

Robotshop announced their worldwide exclusivity partnership with Kinova and unveiled JACO, Kinova’s Advanced Manipulator Arm. JACO is a very powerful and versatile robotic arm capable of reaching just short of one meter (90 cm), and lifting a payload of up-to 1.5 kg. The robotic arm is made of carbon fibre and uses harmonic-gear-motors to move silently and smoothly. The robot’s six degrees-of-freedom can […]
