What has a pair of seven degree of freedom robotic arms, 360 degree sonar and inherited a bunch of robust features from its industrial “father”? Why, the Baxter Research Robot of course! This next generation educational / research tool combines features normally found only on expensive industrial robots with highly […]

“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. […]

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 […]

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 […]

Invenscience is developing a new large scale robotic arm that will use their ridiculously powerful Torxis servo motors and a gripper developed for their previous Advanced Robotic Manipulator. There are not many details available yet, but we know the price will be below 4000 $ for the complete arm with control electronics […]

In an heroic effort to learn everyday household skills, this robot arm form the Italian Institute of Technology has learned the indispensable pancake flipping skill every robot needs (as thought by Dr Petar Kormushev andDr Sylvain Calinon). Despite the great difficulty of this task (who hasn’t wasted a few pancakes attempting this and eventually gave […]
