MRISAR's Dual 3 Finger Robotic Arm Exhibit
Dual 3 Finger Robotic Arm Exhibit with two 3 Fingered Robotic Arms!
This exhibit features two electromechanical robot arms that measure approximately 39” long from the tip of the fingers to the base of the shoulder pivot assembly. These robotic arms each have 3 Fingers and five ranges of motion. The fingers come in either black or white UHMW.
This exhibit gives verbal instructions and robotic application and technical information. This is helpful for children and visitors who have trouble reading or have low vision. The speech function is a Voice Repeater. Recordings can be updated as needed onto an SDHC card.
The exhibit is designed to be visually stunning, educational and useable by virtually any age of museum visitor. This exhibit is viewable from all sides making it ideal for mid floor locations. The arms are placed so that each one is in an adjoining corner. This allows the arms to pass one another without physical contact, but still allows visitors to pass objects back and forth at maximum arm extension. The objects are made of colored foam material to reduce impact stresses between arms and base panel. The swing of each arm creates a theoretical null spot on each side. To compensate for this, polycarbonate barriers tilt any objects that land in a null spot to a reachable angle.
Each arm is protected by limit controls and spring loaded for shock. The limit controls use simple logic to avoid over travel, as opposed to expensive and hard to repair computer guided systems. The wrist, shoulder and elbow ranges of motion are operated by two joystick assemblies per arm. The exhibit is configured as a demonstration arm to illustrate remote handling applications for robotics. Remote handling robots are used by industry, aerospace and commercial establishments to extend human capabilities in hazardous situations.
We will build a complete exhibit including quality built electronic-electromechanical robot arms, fully enclosed exhibit case for the arms, support electronics, visual support materials, maintenance information and schedule, activities and control panel. Approximate size of case 72" high x 95" wide x 39" deep.
