Robotic Arm Solutions

•    Human Motion Data Acquisition

Our system captures three-dimensional XYZ coordinates, six degrees of freedom (6DoF), and joint angle data for the hand and upper limb (shoulder, elbow, wrist), providing a coherent and fluid data foundation for robotic arm pose control and motion planning.

•    Motion Control and Planning for Robotic Arms

NOKOV utilizes captured human kinematic data as the basis for robotic arm motion estimation and control, as well as pose planning and control, enabling the robotic arm to execute tasks along the intended trajectory as set by humans.

•    Verification and Validation of Robotic Arm Motion Planning and Control Methods

Researchers can utilize the NOKOV Optical 3D Motion Capture System to collect the robotic arm's six degrees of freedom (6DoF) motion trajectory and kinematic parameters, serving as true values for validating control algorithms.

NOKOV Optical Motion Capture System Features

•    Acquisition of Human Arm and Robotic Arm 6DoF Motion Trajectories and Kinematic Data

Human kinematic data gathered by NOKOV provides a coherent and fluid foundation for robotic arm pose control and motion planning. The captured kinematic data of the robotic arm can serve as a ground truth for control algorithm validation.

•    Sub-Millimeter Data Precision
•    Extensive Secondary Development Interfaces

Data can be transmitted in VRPN format or through an SDK (C++ language) port, enabling communication with software platforms such as ROS, Labview, and Matlab (including Simulink) for further development.

Assembly Robot (Robotic Arm) Skill Learning

Harbin Institute of Technology (Shenzhen)

To enable ordinary workers to easily operate robots and expand the application range of assembly robots, the research team from the School of Mechatronics Engineering and Automation at Harbin Institute of Technology in Shenzhen adopted the Programming by Demonstration (PbD) method. PbD involves extracting and understanding effective information from human demonstrations, which is then transformed into programs and parameters for the robot to execute corresponding operations. The team chose NOKOV to accomplish the first step of PbD—extracting data from human operational actions.
