iArm – Robotic Manipulator
iARM is a 4-Axis (iARM-5X is 5 axis) RRR Robotic manipulator with Pitch (& Roll in iArm-5X). It was deleloped to serve as a LAB tool for performing Robot Kinematics and Workspace analysis. It is accompanied by a GUI (TRIceps) which allows the user to vary all angles and provides user with the end-point location or gripper position. The iARM-5X can also perform Inverse Kinematics and also can display workspace of the robot. Both iARM 4 and 5 axis use RC servo motors forthier joints.
iARM is my most beloved project ever. It started almost 8 months before I joined TRI but was shelved due to lack of resources and knowledge. It was a challenge thrown at me and I am glad it completed it with charm. I am totally involved in this project right from designing to marketing. It was a very great satsfaction to sell the very 1st iARM I made to my own university K.J.Somaiya COE :). Best learning experience ever. The most expensive product in TRI’s offering.
To learn more about Robotics download the “Introduction to Robotics using iARM”, a documentation and reference manual designed my me while going through the process of making iARM.
Features of iArm:
- An efficient Lab tool for learning of Kinematic Analysis of Robot Manipulator.
- Forward Kinematics and Inverse Kinematics analysis through easy to use GUI and position control through USB port.
- Task Planning through multiple position selection option.
- Complete 3D workspace analysis and real time simulation through software.
- Parallel Gripper for better and firm gripping.
- Robust Aluminum Arm structure for light weighted and higher strength.
- Precise position control using RC Servo Motors.
