QArm is a robotic arm created with education and scientific research in mind. Like all experiments from Quanser, the arm was built with a completely open archiecture. The user has access to all internal signals, so they can freely create their own control and data processing algorithms. The product provides support of Matlab/Simulnik and Open-Source tools – Robot Operating System (ROS). A built-in gripper and an RGBD camera make the robotic arm a multi-purpose tool.
The producer also offers a digital twin of this robotic arm that can be used at home. It’s a great solution for scientists who don’t have constant access to a laboratory and for students learning at home.
The arm is also available in a virtual version: (click here)
The Robot is available in two versions: with a built-in controller (direct connection via USB port to a computer) and with SPI interface to interface with any controller.
