Our team has renovated an older demo unit with current robolink joints. This torso contains a 5 DOF joint arm with a 5 DOF hand and a shaking head actuated by a robolink D joint. Here we use stepper motor controllers by LEADSHINE and all encoder feedbacks and programming is placed on the AtMega Crumb 2560. The programming is in C++. Please contact us if you desire further informations on this: firstname.lastname@example.org
This submarine robot has been developped by our german customer Habib Nasri from Leibnitz University Hannover, iPeG Institute.
It is fully submersible and it is gesture controlled. It contains 1 simple arm with 2 DOF and one more complex arm with 4 DOF, all robolink joints are equipped with our “under water angle sensors”. The 6 stepper motors are placed inside a sealed aluminum housing in the center.
please find attached an update of the robolink technical documentation paper.
It is based on the wire driven robolink joints. A similar document for robolink D (direct drive) will follow later this year.
I want to share another new feature of the WAGO control solution:
With the WAGO control components it is easily possible to control the robolink® joint arm via Wago’s free app “WEBVISU”, that can be used on Apple and Android devices (mobile phone, iPad and so on). This is shown in the video attached:
