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 […]

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 […]
