myCobot Introduction


1 Design Background

Upholding the mission of “Enjoy Robots World”, Elephant Robotics designed and developed myCobot, the world’s smallest and lightest collaborative robot, retaining most functions of industrial robots. With compact and elegant industrial design, excellent and powerful performance, and huge software and hardware development space, myCobot has unlimited possibilities in applications.

The design prototype of myCobot is from All-in-one Robot launched by Elephant Robot in China in 2018. As the first all-in-one collaborative robot in China, it has won “2019 CAIMRS Industrial Robot Innovation Award” and 2019 High-tech Robot Annual “Innovation Technology Award”, and has been sold to more than 30 countries at home and abroad, receiving unanimous praise and recognition from the world’s top 500 enterprises.


2 Introduction

myCobot is the world's smallest and lightest six-axis collaborative robot, jointly produced by Elephant Robotics and M5STACK. It is more than a productivity tool full of imaginations, can carry on the secondary development according to the demands of users to achieve personalized customization.

With a weight of 850g, a payload of 250g and an arm length of 350mm, myCobot is compact but powerful, can not only be matched with a variety of end effectors to adapt to different kinds of application scenarios also support the secondary development of multi-platforms software to meet the needs of various scenarios such as scientific research and education, smart home, and commercial applications.
