Robot Pick ‘n Drop Exhibit

This robot-centric exhibit utilizes Svenzva Robotics’ experience in custom robotics and software, giving children an introduction to robotic control through a fully featured 6-DOF robot arm.

The robot arm is housed in a 4.5′ x 3′ x 6′ transparent enclosure and is controlled via a 6 axis control panel. Using the control panel, children navigate the arm through space and orient the hand to pick up and move stuffed animals.

This method of control simulates remote teleoperation of robots which is used for disposal of radioactive waste, controlling rovers on mars, and remote surgery.

An Introduction to Robotics

Unlike most robotics exhibits, the robot that users control is fully functioned and is used by researchers and companies in the real world- no toys here!

Children get the opportunity to learn about robotic mechanics first hand through remote teleoperation.

Controlling a robot doesn’t have to be complex and doesn’t require hours of planning.  It can be as simple as exploring a joystick and seeing how the robot responds.

Safe Software

This exhibit uses Svenzva Robotics’ smart collision software to control the robot. This “Dual Control” mode allows users to send movement commands to the robot giving the robot the choice whether or not to carry out the command.

The robot has been programmed to reject movements that would harm itself or the exhibit. For this reason, the robot will not touch the ground or the walls of the exhibit, but instead pause at a safe distance away from obstacles while still allowing movement near the tethered stuffed animals.

Affordability in Mind

Svenzva’s mission is to bring robotics to the public, and to inspire the next generation of young roboticists. As such, we offer the Robot Pick n’ Drop exhibit at a very affordable rate.

If you’re interested in bringing robotics to your museum, activity center or school please contact us.
