Humanoid robot arms offer exciting advantages for robotic tasks. With many degrees of freedom, they are able to reach around obstacles, reconfigure for strength, improve accuracy, and manipulate objects with dexterous, fluid motion. Humanoid manipulators have the property of kinematic redundancy that enables the placement of a hand or tool at a desired position and orientation within its workspace in an unlimited number of ways.
Combined with Energid’s 3D visualization, reasoning, and control software, the Cyton Alpha can perform advanced control by exploiting kinematic redundancy. With Energid’s networking software, it can be controlled remotely through a local area network or the Internet. Specifications
Mechanical Structure: 7 DOF plus gripper, all axes completely independent. All axes can be controlled simultaneously. Pitching actions have integrated load balancing springs. Key joints have additional planetary ball bearing support.
Electronics: 32 Channel servo controller with 24 free channels for adding end effectors and other peripherals.
Actuators: High quality PMDC servo motors with integral gear reduction.
