QLabs Virtual QArm

Virtual platform for distance and blended undergraduate robotics courses

Robotics & Mechatronics Manipulator Robotics Software Virtual Experiments

QLabs Virtual QArm is a fully instrumented, dynamically accurate virtual twin of a Quanser QArm system. It behaves in the same way as the physical hardware and can be measured and controlled using MATLAB®/Simulink® and other development environments. QLabs Virtual QArm can enrich your lectures and activities in traditional labs, or bring credible, authentic model-based lab experiences into your distance and online robotics course.

QLabs Virtual QArm is available as a 12-month, multi-seat subscription. The platform is compatible with the physical QArm curriculum which covers concepts including joint control, kinematics, path planning, statics, and dynamics.


Product Details

Same as the physical QArm, the virtual system is a 4 DOF serial robotic manipulator with a tendon-based two-stage gripper and an RGBD camera.
