Programmable 3D virtual reality school robotic arm from Camboard
Robotics software for k12 and ks3 computing curriculum..
Robot Laser Cutter simulates the operation of a robotic arm with all the operating functions of a real robot. Robot Laser Cutter brings to the classroom an easy to use interface with a realistic 3D graphical robotic arm at an affordable price. This program is useful to demonstrate the principles behind a robotic moving arm and enable students to write control programs that use a laser beam to cut through strips of plastic on a table. This simulates a typical robotic arm scenario found in industry.The student Controls the robot by clicking on icons that control each of the robots stepper motors. The parts of the robot are colour coded for easy identification.
This program is useful for schools coding software requirements.
A powerful programming language is included that allows a script of commands to control and move each element of the robotic arm.
The language uses simple commands that students can get to grips with quickly.
Robot Laser Cutter is specially designed for use in the classroom, this is reflected in the easy to use programming language.
Programs contain primitive commands such as: -
TURN WRIST CW 3
All commands can be placed in procedures. The robotic arm incorporates sensors enabling feedback to be used in programs. Decision-making IF statements and loops with the REPEAT and WHILE commands can be used in programs. The MOVE command allows easy movement to a specific Cartesian co-ordinate. Programs can be saved for future use.
The laser cuts through plastic sheets that are placed on a table.
The robot can use X,Y,Z Cartesian co-ordinates to move to a specific point.
Robot Laser Cutter features a 3 dimensional version of a robotic arm at a price much lower than a comparable real arm.
Includes an online User Guide and Tutorial.
