The Robot Leg Torque Tutorial is intended to compliment the RobotShop Leg Torque Calculator found in the Dynamic Tools section of the RobotShop Learning Center. This tutorial explains how to find the torques acting at each degree of freedom of a 6-legged (hexapod), 3DOF / leg “insect” robotic leg. Hexapod (6-legged) robots are most commonly […]

The velocity of a mobile robot is entirely up to the user. A robot that moves too fast might be more difficult to control whereas a robot that moves too slowly tends to appear sluggish. Given the diversity of robots possible, there is no set standard (nor should there be) for determining a robot’s ideal […]

It is becoming increasingly important for schools to improve and broaden their scope and selection of technological subjects/topics in order to compete in a global market. More and more robotics manufacturers are noticing this potentially huge market and are making their products more “user-friendly” so that teachers can incorporate them into their courses more easily.
