Let's Make Robots!

Delta Robot

Moving to given points

This Delta Robot is made from ply wood and aluminium. Cheap servo motors for the positioning. Atmel Attiny2313 for controlling the servos over RS232 with MATLAB. MATLAB calculates full inverse kinematics for the robot. The robot moves to given points. The point-to-point movement is realised with linear interpolation and inverse kinematics.

How does the inverse kinematics work? Look here: http://forums.trossenrobotics.com/tutorials/introduction-129/delta-robot-kinematics-3276/ or here: http://www.cm.mcgill.ca/~paul/clavdelt.pdf

Hmmm...  Weapons platform, maybe?

A weapons platform would need to rotate instead of translate.

A turret placed on top of a self leveling deck would counter the effects of hills, bumps, etc.

It`s not self levelling. The platform stays level only in relation to the base. If the base is sitting on a 10 degree incline, then the top is also going to have a 10 degree angle.

you should post the code :( and some explanation about how to make this

But how can this happen?

Did you buy this arm by yourshelf or someone made you this one for some kind of present?

Maybe its not my robot...

double post

Really cool ,i want to make one ...

The robotic arm on the back how much did cost ?

The robotic arm in the back is a Kuka Kr3. Cost much moore as the delta robot in the front. ;-)
