Rotrics DexArm @ RobotsBlog

Was würdet ihr mit einem eigenen Roboterarm machen? Wie kann er mich bei der Arbeit unterstützen? Was kann man, einfach nur zum Spaß, automatisieren?

Antworten auf diese Fragen und Ideen für Projekte habe ich in den letzten Jahren gesammelt. Solltet ihr Ideen oder Wünsche haben was ein Roboterarm für euch machen soll, kontaktiert mich. In nächster Zeit werdet ihr verschiedene Projekte und Ergebnisse hierzu auf Robots-Blog und unseren Social-Media-Kanälen finden.
Unterstützt werde ich hierbei von einem Rotrics DexArm, der mir dankenswerterweise in der Luxury Kit Variante zur Verfügung gestellt wurde.

The PROTO-HAROLD 1.1 motorized camera cellphone slider robot

The PROTO-HAROLD 1.1 is a simple, light weight robot, designed to easily bring a CINEMATIC element to any video project. Designed, Machined and Hand Assembled in Cleveland,  Ohio, USA.

Your smartphone can go from pocket to stunning motion shot in under 10 seconds as the PROTO-HAROLD 1.1 has ZERO assembly or setup, programming or technical know-how required for use. Simply insert your smartphone, press „ON“, followed by „GO“ and you have a MOVING VIDEO.

Perfect for live streams, nature documentaries, music videos, interviews, YouTubers, TikTokers, movie projects for screens large and small, commercials, presentations, video demonstrations, school projects, home movies, advertisements, video production, unboxing videos, reaction videos, literally… any video project imaginable.

BOUNCE: When turned on, the PROTO-HAROLD 1.1 will begin running „BOUNCE“, a custom-written, pre-loaded program which will move the CAMERA SLED from one end of the track to the other. Instead of only traveling only one time like other systems, or harshly running back and forth, BOUNCE slowly brings the camera sled to a smooth, full stop, before reversing and smoothly accelerating backwards to full speed, endlessly repeating this choreographed process.

The speed and travel length are both adjustable, with a max travel speed of ~1cm per second, or ~50 seconds to go 52cm / 20.5″ from one end to the other.

This is useful as an extra „camera man“ during an interview process to provide an extra moving camera angle, or set it up to capture a moving shot when you aren’t exactly sure when the action will start, let it run for a bit and choose the best moving shot.

MOVING TIME LAPSE: Use the backlit LCD screen and EASY MENU to change modes to TIME LAPSE and set a desired time frame of 2 – 60 minutes. The PROTO-HAROLD 1.1 does the math and will travel from one end to the other, slowly accelerating, reaching full speed, decelerating and smoothly coming to a stop within the time frame selected. Once done, it will park and then ask to run a second time in reverse.

FEATURES:

  • Light Weight and Portable (under 2 pounds / under 1kg)
  • 34″ x  4″ x  2″ (87cm x 10cm x 5cm)
  • 20.5″ of camera movement  (52cm)
  • Strong for its size (can lift itself, or up to 2 pounds vertically)
  • Designed for smartphones up to 2 pounds, but can slide 10+ pounds (not recommended)
  • USB rechargeable (take and charge it anywhere)
  • ~2 Hour Runtime (horizontal, no camera)
  • ~1 Hour Runtime (vertical, no camera)
  • RECORD MOVING TIME LAPSE VIDEO (2 – 60 minutes) with soft start and stop
  • (3) 1/4″ standard tripod bottom mounting holes on each end
  • Non-marring rubber feet
  • Self Calibrating
  • Powered by a 16MHz Super Computer Thinking Machine
  • Precision Stepper Motor Control
  • Quiet Operation
  • (2) Lithium Ion Rechargeable Batteries
  • RED/GREEN charging LED
  • Replaceable Safety Fuse (remove for long term storage/transport)
  • Pre-programmed with an EASY USE MENU, turn it on and use it
  • Adjustable Speed, Acceleration/Deceleration & Overall Travel Length
  • Blue
  • Designed, Machined and Hand Assembled in Cleveland, Ohio, USA

igus low cost automation: Mask dispensers – save costs with the right robot

First published on igus Blog.
Due to the current situation with the Covid-19 virus, protective masks are our daily companion, whether in the supermarket or when visiting the doctor. Whether self-sewn or produced masks, almost everyone has at least one mask for their own needs. But what can you do if you have forgotten the mask and still have to go shopping?

More and more vending machines are being placed in front of shops in order to ensure admission. These dispensers are constructed similarly to toy vending machines as seen in fairgrounds. There a robot grips a desired toy and brings it to the delivery point.

A Pick&Place application can be seen here:

igus robot kinematics for cost-effective and fast automation

Robot kinematics from igus are ideally suited to such machines. Whether the delta robot, which enables lightning-fast dispensing with a dynamic of 60 picks/min, or the modular linear robot , where the customer can choose the length, are an ideal solution. igus robots are a cost-effective solution and offer a fast return on investment.

Delta robots from igus for cost-effective pick and place applications.

Delta robot is suitable for mask dispensers

Also known as parallel or spider robot. This is because it consists of three linear systems that are built up to form a centre. The delta robot is characterised by its speed. It achieves up to 60 picks per minute. The delta kinematics are optimal for pick and place applications, e.g. in the food, electronics and pharmaceutical industries. The delta robot is suitable for mask dispensers. On request, igus supplies a finished control concept with the igus Robot Control system.

You can find out which robot type is best suited for your application in our blog post.

Furby „inside view“

Ever wondered what one of my favorite robot looks like from the inside? Here are some pictures of the first generation Furby with his fur taken off, exposing his electronics and internal components.

Tech Vision: How Boston Dynamics Built The Most Advanced Robot

The following video has been uploaded to YouTube by tech vision. I think it has all the information you need about Boston Dynamics robots and is therefore a must-see.
