TROBOT 2.0 & 3.0
The TROBOT is a miniature six-axis articulated robot, modeled after large industrial & assembly line robots. The TROBOT is designed to be a small ’relatively’ safe robot, capable of safely working alongside human counterparts. I’ve worked with industrial robots for over 15 years and those large, heavy, fast, machines (that move thousands of pounds around effortlessly) require strict rules and safeguarding procedures because they are dangerous. The TROBOT simply does not have enough power to cause serious bodily harm. If you get in its way, it may hurt a little, but it won't squash you!
These versions of the TROBOT were built on a very tight budget, the entire project material costs were under $100.
