The vBOT is a custom-built back-drivable 2 degree of freedom planar robotic device.
These includes a 3BOT manipulandum, as well as a smaller 3DOF manipulandum. The former is a extension of the VBOT manipulandum that operates in 3 dimensional space.
This is 3D printed 3DOF arm that is actuated using worm-drive motors.
This can be used to examine strategies to control and modulate the stiffness of a single link robot arm.
These are more sophistically version of the inverted pendulums use for teaching.
A two-armed robot with an animated screen that is capable of grasping objects during human-robot collaboration.
A humanoid robot used in different applications like education and entertainment.
A full humanoid robot capable of grasping objects and interacting with people and the environment. It is an ideal platform for related research to embodied cognition.
