armBOT v1.0 under development

A Step Towards Hands-on Collaborative Learning Journey​

armBOT Objective

The goal is to equip you with a multitude of skills required to build an interdisciplinary robotics project remotely or in person. You will develop working knowledge in

  • Teleoperability,
  • Sensors,
  • Actuators,
  • Simulation through ROS,
  • Research methods,
  • Technical communication.

armBOT Overview

The armBot has the following capabilities as of the latest version

  • 6 DoF arm
  • Remotely operated
  • Visual object detection
  • Open-source collaborative platform


To enable the arm with the above mentioned functionality, certain sensors have been used and in this section we will develop an understanding of the working of the sensors and the ways of using them.

Subsystem Definition and overview

When the above parts come together, they give rise to silos which play important role in making the armBOT work.
