MRISAR's Teleoperated Dual 3 or 5 Finger Robot Arm
This exhibit is applicable for the following themes; Industrial Applications & Hazardous Waste Management - Laboratory & Outreach !
One of the exhibit’s robotic arms is controlled directly from an attached Teleoperated Control Console through remote viewing. The Teleoperated Console contains a viewing screen and controls. The screen shows a remote view of the movements of the robotic arm that its controls operate. The other arm is controlled by direct viewing with attached exhibit controls.
This exhibit features your choice of two electromechanical robot arms that measure approximately 39” long from the tip of the fingers to the base of the shoulder pivot assembly (choose either: a 5 Finger version that has nine ranges of motion and independent movement in all 5 fingers, or a 3 Finger version that has five ranges of motion, or one of each for a dual combo exhibit.
The exhibit is designed to be visually stunning, educational and usable by virtually any age of museum visitor. As with all of our robotics exhibits this exhibit also conveys a wide variety of elements that are important to STEM education. Each side of the upper frame of the exhibit is a window made of clear poly-carbonate to make it visible 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, poly-carbonate 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. The exhibit also provides hands on activities based on Telepresence Robotic Manipulation technology which encompasses devices for transmitting movements to a remote robotic device, allowing the manipulation of objects that are too heavy, dangerous, small, or in other respects too difficult to handle directly.
We will build a complete exhibit including quality built electronic-electromechanical robot arms, fully enclosed exhibit cases for the arms and teleoperated console, support electronics, camera, monitor, visual support materials, maintenance information and schedule, activities and control panels. The approximate size of the main case is 72" high x 95" wide x 38" deep. The approximate size of the teleoperated console is 36" wide x 44" deep x 72" high.
