Cascade Six-Joint Robot (Scientific Research Version)

1.      Platform Introduction

The scientific-research-version cascade six-joint robot provides a semi-physical verification environment for the development debugging of the control systems of vertical-cascade six-joint robots. It can provide a fast verification platform for the research of robot control theory algorithms, such as six-joint robot trajectory planning, space interpolation algorithm, positive/inverse kinematics calculation, terminal moment control, robotic vision and processing, etc.

2.      Platform Features
  1. User-Friendly Development Environment: The platform, based on Matlab Simulink, develops robot control system models, which greatly reduces the difficulty in learning robot control system design;
  2. Excellent Platform Timeliness: The control program runs on the VxWorks real-time OS, with the timeliness level of up to 20us;
  3. High-Precision Industrial-Grade Robot: 6-joint full-servo drive, with the precision of up to 0,03mm;
  4. Diverse Debugging Methods: Supports various development debugging methods, such as online modification of any controller model parameter, online monitoring of any system variable, and real-time storage, offline playback and data export of all observation data.
  5. Open-Source Examples: The platform provides fully open-source examples and training documents about robot kinematics, dynamics, and image recognition, giving postgraduates engineering examples for reference to assist their robot control algorithm design, robot body parameter testing, and actual driver parameter regulation.
