This is a brief introduction for the Dobot conveyor belt. This equipment is meant primarily for use in education and will typically be part of an automated system in combination with one or more robot arms. I received this unit for review from Dobot.nu. In the video below I will have a look at the included hardware, programming and will run a simple program to demonstrate how you could use the system.
A vision system is an indispensable tool for most automated production processes. Dobot offers a Vision System for educational use, which can be used in conjunction with the Magician or M1 robot arms. The star of the show is the software included the package Vision Studio. It has advanced image recognition features and a clean, easy to use visual programming interface based on flows.
The AI Starter is a Robotic Car based on the well established Arduino architecture. It is primarily intended to be used in education for programming, automation and robotics. After posting a couple of videos on the Dobot Magician Robot I was contacted by a local Dobot supplier Dobot.nu. They asked me if I would like to have a look at some of the other products Dobot has on offer.
In this article I will have a look at the AI starter kit they sent over for review. I will cover the assembly of the kit, programming and a mini project with a tipping bucket I designed, to demonstrate the expandability of the platform.
Vision systems and robot arms are used in many modern production lines. With the availability of cheap vison cameras for consumers it has now become possible to make your own vision system controlled robot arm at home.
This article describes how to add a vision system to the Dobot magician robotic arm, allowing it to identify parts automatically and place them in a designated drop off location.
Dobot has recently released the second version of their robotic arm. The Dobot Magician can actually be considered a learning platform for robotics, programming and manufacturing methods for makers. It includes end effectors for pick and place operations, 3D printing and laser engraving. It is positioned as a robotic arm for educational purposes, light industrial use and hobby projects at home.
