Braccio++ is a fully operational robotic arm controlled via Arduino technology. The next evolution of the Tinkerkit Braccio robot, Braccio++ has been designed for advanced high school and college students who are studying the sciences, industrial science, or technology.
Featuring five degrees of freedom, there’s not a lot this robotic arm isn’t capable of. Braccio++ can be assembled in several ways to accomplish various tasks, such as moving objects, mounting a camera and tracking your movements, or attaching a solar panel and tracking the movement of the Sun.
The Braccio++ offers a multitude of possibilities from the outset and features a Braccio Carrier with LCD screen, RS485 motors, and an enhanced experience. In addition to the open-source hardware in the kit, there’s an e-learning platform with step-by-step instructions, three complete projects, and other learning materials.
With the instructional materials, students will create a small replica of a real industrial robot used on an assembly line or in an automotive factory. They will also explore applications of physical concepts through lifting, placing, rotating, and sorting different items.
The Braccio++ serves up to three students and is delivered in a decorated box.
