Programmable 3D virtual reality school robotic arm from Camboard
Robotics software for k12 and ks3 computing curriculum..
Interactive Robot simulates the operation of a robotic arm with all the operating functions of a real school robot.
Interactive Robot brings to the classroom an easy to use interface with a realistic 3D graphical robotic arm at an affordable price.
This program is useful to demonstrate the principles behind a school robotic moving arm and enable students to write control programs that pick up items in the robots gripper and move them about the macroworld to another location.
This simulates a typical robotic arm scenario found in industry.
The program is useful for schools coding software requirements.
Pick up and move objects. The arms grippers can pick up and move objects within the robots own macroworld. The robot can use X,Y,Z Cartesian co-ordinates to move to a specific point. Interactive Robot features a 3 dimensional version of a school robot arm at a price much lower than a comparable real arm.
A powerful programming language is included that allows a script of commands to control and move each element of the robotic arm. The language uses simple commands that students can get to grips with quickly. Interactive Robot is specially designed for use in the classroom, this is reflected in the easy to use programming language.
Programs contain primitive commands such as: -
TURN WRIST CW 31. OPEN FINGERS 12.
All commands can be placed in procedures. The robotic arm incorporates sensors enabling feedback to be used in programs.
Decision-making IF statements and loops with the REPEAT and WHILE commands can be used in programs.
The MOVE command allows easy movement to a specific Cartesian co-ordinate.
Programs can be saved for future use.
Explains the main parts of the arm with a guide to picking up and moving items.
Includes an online User Guide and Tutorial.
