LEGO Flexpicker

with 2 comments

You guys really have to watch this one. It’s made by one of our very talented users on the forums, nicknamed “shep”. It’s an arm that’s based off of the flexpicker industrial arms that you see on assembly lines. Here’s the video:

Here’s shep’s description:

This robot is based on the ABB Flexpicker industrial pick and place robot. It uses four NXT microcontrollers with various Lego sensors and motors. It is very easy to program, each position uses an array element containing 3 motor positions, 3 motor speeds and an action such as grip, release or pause. I can easily teach it to pick anything up as long as it can reach it and it will fit into the end effecter. The robot is programmed using RobotC 1.45.

Good job Shep!
