myCobot: From 0 to 1
1.1 Why do we design myCobot
An entry-level collaborative robot arm that everyone can learn and play
The original design of myCobot is to help friends who are interested in 6-axisseries robot to learn it from entry to master, creating unprecedented experience and teaching value.
What you can learn
Robotics is based on rigid body kinematics and dynamics, but also an interdisciplinary subject that combines hardware, software, algorithm and control.
With myCobot, you can learn that
- Embedded Microcontroller Based on ESP32
- Motor and Steering Gear
- M5Stack Basic/ Atom
- Communication Data
- Virtual Machines & Linux (visual system)
- Series Manipulator
- Coordinate and Coordinate Transformation坐标与坐标转换
- DH Parameters
- Manipulator Algorithm (e.g. dynamics)
- Machine Vision (Vision Set)
- Color Recognition
- Image Recognition
- Hand-Eye Calibration
- See and Grab
- Extended Applications
- End-effector: gripper,suction pump, etc.
- Robot Suit & Industry 4.0 Applications
