xArm 2.0: Hiwonder New Intelligent Robotic Arm Support Scratch & Python Assemble Programmable Robotic Kit
- Upgraded Servo Controller
- Brand-new Sensors
- Inverse Kinematics Algorithm
- Mobile/PC/handle/offline manual control
- Based on Scratch/Python
- Serial bus servo. Full metal gear
The xArm 2.0 has exceeded my expectations as a robotics learning kit. The support for both Scratch and Python coding caters to learners with varying programming preferences. The ability to manually control the arm offline adds a practical touch to the learning experience. Overall, a versatile and well-designed kit for anyone diving into the world of robotics.
The xArm 2.0 is a game-changer for robotics enthusiasts. The 6DOF programmable arm with intelligent serial bus servos provides an unparalleled level of precision and control. I was particularly impressed by the versatility offered through the support for both Scratch and Python coding. The inclusion of an inverse kinematics algorithm analysis further enhances its capabilities.
The xArm 2.0 has proven to be an impressive addition to my robotics projects. The intelligent serial bus servos provide precise position and voltage feedback, offering a level of control that's crucial for my applications. The support for both Scratch and Python coding makes programming a breeze, and the inclusion of more than 10 electronic modules allows for extensive customization. The compatibility with Hiwonder sensors is a bonus, and the option for multi-robot cooperation opens up new possibilities. The combination of app, PC software, PS2 handle, and offline manual control ensures flexibility in operation. The angle read-back feature of the servos, along with voltage and temperature feedback, adds an extra layer of reliability to this sophisticated robotic arm.
I'm surprised more people haven't reviewed this robotic arm kit. I found the kit extremely well thought out. The parts machining and anodizing are just beautiful. A very important aspect of this design is the turntable that the arm sits on. It is built using a large diameter industrial quality bearing which provides a very solid base for the arm to operate on and provide servo-controlled rotation. The servos are top quality, very smooth operation and very powerful. The gripper is pre-assembled, a nice touch, and the joint design is quite clever. Hiwonder provides excellent tutorial videos, and an extremely helpful assembly video using 3D modeling to show how things go together in sequence. Another reviewer noted the importance of sorting out all the fastener hardware, that really helped smooth the build for me. The Bluetooth connection to the free iPhone app worked great, another impressive feature of this kit, especially for the money. There is also PC interface software that is provided although I have not tried that. I'm particularly interested in connecting an Arduino to the arm and writing sketches for controlling robotic arm, and Aaron at Hiwonder showed me where to find the necessary information for that. Hiwonder has been very responsive answering my questions.
I had plans for this in a mobile robot. I first built and tested as standalone. YouTube videos are good. I paused them as I built. Took an afternoon while it was raining. Software for PC and phone and wifi controller are all included.
