Robotic Arm for RVR

I would like to purchase robotic arms for my RVRs. Does anyone have any experience with them? I saw a robotic arm on the RVR on the Sphero website. I would like to know what model it is and who manufactured it. Thanks!

Do you have a 3D Printer, some Servos, and a Microcontroller? You can make your own robot arm if you can’t find one you like.

Are you using Arduino, Raspberry Pi?

Have you read through this recent thread? Has some possible model numbers of the arm shown in the videos.

Has anyone found out what kind cargo weight capacity RVR has? Could RVR wear & function with 2 arms?

Don’t quote me but I think RVR can carry a payload of around 5lb or 2kg.

Hmm, that ought to handle 2 functional robotic arms & a head nicely. :wink: :smiley:

Hey Fam!

Just wanted to jump in to note that the highest amount of weight RVR has been tested to handle without performance degradation is 250 grams. This doesn’t mean that you can’t add more (many of our example projects do), but there may be a noticeable difference in battery life/speed/etc.

Can’t wait to see that double-armed-RVR though!
