Robotics labs are educational environments that support the growth of experienced professionals who will operate in this industry as well as environments where robotics research can advance to improve our quality of life.

There are a lot of methods for controlling the system manually and automatically. The most well-known automatic control methods are logic control, on-off control, and PID control. In this article, we will talk generally about automatic control systems, but especially the PID control systems.

The Delta Robot is an example of a parallel robot. It has three arms that are joined at the base by universal joints. The usage of parallelograms in the arms, which preserves the end effector's alignment, is the fundamental design element.

Mechatronics, also known as mechatronic engineering, is a multidisciplinary engineering field that focuses on the design of both electrical and mechanical systems, as well as robotics, electronics, computer systems, control, and product engineering. A Mechatronics Design Lab is a fabrication shop and classroom with equipment for creating microprocessor-controlled electromechanical systems.

At the age of technology, the usage of robotics knowledge in higher education is only to be expected. There are even initiatives launched by certain national education authorities on the issue and they aim to incorporate robotics-based projects into new curricula. These initiatives, however, are far from successful since the robotics knowledge remains peripheral to the chief study plans and continues to be apart of the extra curricular or summer activities.

The linear inverted pendulum (or linear pendulum, lin. pen for short) is a classical physics experiment used to explain the control theory and system dynamics. Therefore, it has been used as one of the primary systems used to test and compare control strategies. In an inverted pendulum system, which is an open-loop unstable system, it is desired to stabilize the system by reciprocating motion to stabilize it. It is also used as a common method for testing control algorithms.

The device, called the Stewart Platform, was first designed in 1954 by V. Eric Gough from England. It is classified as a parallel manipulator device that is used for positioning and motion control.

In this whitepaper, we are exploring Python® language support of ACROME’s educational robotic systems.

Here is a good list that encapsulates what could be done with a decent quality ball balancer system: 6 different control lab experiments.

2018 was such a productive year for robotic developments. Different kind of industries like medical, bio, domestic and toy segments have all made brilliant advances with the help of artificial intelligence.

Stepper motors are the motors that operate with very precise signals. They change the angular position step by step with the pulse signals applied to the motor input. The stepper motors, which convert digital inputs into analog rotational motion, are also known as "digital machines".
