This robot is for production lines for manual labor and combining large parts that are manurfactured in assmbly.
It uses its claw like hand to to grab large parts and place them on a line
This is a new robot kit you can purchuse for about 300$ it can walk and navigate if you prgram it to it comes with an optional camera.
Robots like this are used to go where humans cannot, this one in particuar is made for bomb disposal it will disarm a bomb using a water jet stream to puncter and disarm the trigger to the bomb they also use it to get close to hostage situations like this one this happened in a trailer park when I man took his wife hostage the man went crazy and shot the bot
A robot is made up of the very same components. A typical robot has a movable physical structure, a motor of some sort, a sensor system, a power supply and a computer "brain" that controls all of these elements. Essentially, robots are man-made versions of animal life -- they are machines that replicate human and animal behavior.
The robot's computer controls everything attached to the circuit. To move the robot, the computer switches on all the necessary motors and valves. Most robots are reprogrammable -- to change the robot's behavior, you simply write a new program to its computer.
Tribotz Specifications:Power Source: One 9V and two AA batteries Power Consumption: Minimum current is 5mA (with motor on standby. Maximum current is 120mA (while operating motor). Power Voltage: DC 3V Height: 4.4 inches Length: 5.8 inches Width: 6 inches
This robot kit ii very basic andhas very basic and detailed instructions step by step procedures that come with it
The Boe-Bot has a high-quality brushed aluminum chassis that provides a sturdy platform for the servo motors and Board of Education - Serial Interface which is included this kit. The chassis has plenty of mounting holes and slots to add your own sensors and actuators. The rear wheel is a drilled polyethylene ball held in place with a cotter pin. Wheels are machined to fit precisely on the servo spline and held in place with a small screw.
This kit includes everything you will need to get started though it is expensive it does have everything that you need
What’s Included • Infrared Front-Facing Sensor • Infrared Down-Facing Sensor• Electrical Components and Connectors• Mechanical Fasteners
What’s Covered • Attaching the Sensors• Writing Sensor Code• Avoiding Walls and Other Obstructions• Retreating from Stairs and Table Edges• Using Define Statements in C• Tracking Lines on the Floor
This is just a Add on pack that includes mounts and sensors
To keep cost down we could use this to put our components down how we would program iit im not certain but we would need a microcontroller.
Cherry CU101102. Magnetically actuated sensor. 0.46" diameter x 1.41" long threaded body with mounting nut. 9' long, two-conductor cable.
We could use this to see how we are to objects to explore the idea of navigation
