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).

Note: 3D printable designs are licensed CC(BY-SA). Code is licensed GPL V2.

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.

hi, where do you have this project? which web page? i will build a robotic arm with servos dynamixel, but i dont any idea. you can taach make it, what used to make this robotic arm in the case of programation what interfce you use arduino or the inteface of dynamixel, I see than you use the potentiometers.
