Articulated Robot Question
« on: January 06, 2022, 05:46:46 PM »
Does a cylindrical robot with 2 vertical rotary joints (one on base, one on arm) make it articulated?
If so, when I remove one rotary joint (base or arm), does that make it non articulated?
Thanks

  ;D  Hello!

     I would assume 2 or more joints, or degrees of freedom, would constitute
an articulated robot. Mousetraps are considered to be a type of "robot" to
some definitions, but I would not call it a robot.
    If the robot is a moving base or arm, but has no intelligence with the
function it is performing, then that would be a sad robot.  :'(
    Google 's Alexa has no arms, but can do alot of work. In this sense, if you could make a
body for Alexa, to respond to physical commands coupled with the original
intelligence, you will have a interesting robot!  ;)

    Anyway, good luck on whatever you are working on!!  ;D

 :) Hello!

     To add to the discussion;

    If you remember, the HERO robot came out in 1984, and was one of the most
loved robots of all time.  :-*  It did have wheel drive, movable guide wheel, and an
"articulated" arm.
   the HERO Jr. was the second most popular, but only had drive wheels
and a guide wheel.

   So, there you have it!  ;D Functionality and cleverness of the device makes the
robot!
   Depending on your function, it could be the best robot in the world, who knows?  ???
