EEDURO is an open robotics platform for use with the EEROS software framework. The goal is to develop a family of different, small sized low cost robots. Currently the EEDURO Delta robot is ready for factoring. There is also work going on a mobile robot with a Stanford drive.
You can build your own Delta robot from scratch by using a 3D-printer, buying a few standard mechanical parts together with some off-the-shelf electronic circuits together and a processor board. With a few software scripts you download the necessary software, build, and deploy it to the processor board. The current application simply moves the tool center point in a circle. You could equip this tool center point with a tool, such as a magnet or a gripper.
Like any EEROS application our application to control the delta roboter is comprised of a control system, a safety system, and a sequencer running a given sequence. To get familiar with EEROS and its structure read more about the EEROS Architecture.
We have built a range of delta robots which stand upright (List with all NTB Delta Robots). The electronic equipment is nearly identical to the above version while their mechanical hardware differ. The tool center point encompasses a motor together with a magnet. This allows for rising, turning, and releasing of small steel blocks. The software has some light adaptations, depending on the different application programmed. It will move the blocks so as to sort them in a certain fashion.
