Mico² moves smoothly and silently around 4 or 6 degrees of freedom with unlimited rotation on each axis. Its main structure, entirely made of carbon fiber, delivers optimal robustness and durability. The arm is mounted on a standard aluminum extruded support structure that can be affixed to almost any surface.
The robot axes integrate a complete sensor package with: Torque, Position, Current, Acceleration and Temperature sensors in each joint.
The gripper consists of two or three fingers that can be controlled individually. Their unique bi-injected plastic structure endows them with great flexibility and unrivalled grip.
Mico² can be controlled with a computer (see the “Software” section below) or Kinova’s 3-axis, 7-button joystick. Control is intuitive and allows users to navigate using 3 different modes: translate, rotate, and grip. Also, Kinova’s Intelligent Singularity Avoidance System always keeps Mico² safely away from unwanted locations. Mico² is highly flexible and can adapt to all user needs.
Mico² features an advanced application programming interface (API), enabling programmers to raise their experience to another level. The API, linked to Mico² through a USB 2.0 connector, allows programmers to configure advanced parameters and integrate the robot to their own systems. In addition, Mico² can be controlled with any one of many navigation systems, providing a broad range of applications from analyzing central system data to programming automated paths. The API comes with complete documentation and several code examples. In addition, new and exciting updates are available on a regular basis.Watch VIDEO
