Joint Control Robot – 4 DOF

This product is no longer available.

Today’s generation of engineering student often enters university with extensive exposure to robotics. Through competitions such as FIRST Robotics, they have had an opportunity to study and apply various robotic principles. Your undergraduate lab, though, needs to take students further. In order to prepare for advanced robotics research and industrial careers, students need to master rigorous concepts and complement theoretical knowledge with hands-on skills. With the Quanser Joint Control Robot – 4DOF, you can reach these goals. The high-end yet affordable robotic manipulator makes your lab relevant to real-world applications. With multiple simulations and 3D visualization seats, you can accommodate more students and extend the learning beyond the lab.
