AR10 Robotic Hand: 10 degrees of humanity
The AR10 Robotic Hand has been designed to ensure a durable and robust, yet lightweight hybrid construction. It features 10 degrees of freedom offering an extensive set of movements and grips for your robotics experiments.
Made of anodised aluminium and plastic, this platform works just like a human hand thanks to 10 servo-actuated fingers connected to a high-precision controller. It is equipped with all the connectivity options you need to perform your programming or communication tasks.
The hand is fully ROS compliant, making the AR10 compatible with Rviz and MoveIt! for instance. These tools enable complex programming tasks and motion planning.
Whether on Windows, Linux, Mac, or Arduino, the AR10 Hand gives you the flexibility to work with your platform of choice. This humanoid robotic hand couldn’t be more appealing!
AR10 Robotic Hand: a robotics platform you can customise as you see fit
As a stand-alone platform, the AR10 Robotic Hand allows you to work for hours on end, in your lab or your classroom. Yet you can also use it at the end of a robot arm such as Rethink Robotics’ Sawyer or Baxter, as it features all the necessary connectors to quickly give a hand to your Sawyer robot!
With 4 extra analogue inputs for expansion, your AR10 can become even more sensitive, intelligent, and autonomous when you add selected sensors.
