The Summit-XL robot, either in its standard or Mecanum wheel configuration, is the base that supports the robotic arm of Kinova Gen2 Ultra lightweight robot. Kinova robotic arms are a perfect solution for the integration in our mobile platforms. This arm contributes to the manipulator a number of notable features: A lightweight arm of 6 DOF that can be configured with two or three fingers. The arm has a unique design with a static appearance and is made of carbon fiber materials. This manipulator is designed for harsh, hazardous or research environments.
Meanwhile, the mobile robot SUMMIT-XL has differential kinematics (skid-steering) or omnidirectional based on 4 high performance motors. Each wheel integrates a brushless motor and encoder (optional). Odometry is calculated using the four encoders and high precision angle sensor mounted inside the chassis.
Due to the low power consumption of the arm, this mobile platform considerably increased autonomy. It also has potential powerful dampers can be assembled in several positions to change the clearance between the chassis and the floor of the robot.
The mobile manipulator XL-GEN uses open architecture and modular control ROS.
