Work in progress!
This design is still incomplete, with designs and code still to be uploaded and instructions still to be written. Check back soon or email [email protected] to be informed about when this is ready!
1 and 2 degree of freedom joysticks (2DOF with safety switch) for controlling the 6WD robot base plus 5 degree of freedom "master" controller for controlling the 5DOF robot arm in a Master-Slave configuration (the "slave" arm on the robot assumes the same posture as the "master" arm that the operator manually positions).

This design is part of the Open Academic Robot Kit, a family of robot designs designed to lower the barrier of entry to interesting robotics. All of the designs consist of parts that can either be 3D printed using a low cost FDM printer, or obtained off-the-shelf (or via mail order from various sources) around the world. All designs are released under CC(BY-SA). Software necessary to demonstrate the robot's basic capabilities is also open source.
