Armstrong – Build & code your own robotic arm

Meet Armstrong – a programmable robotic arm with 4 degrees of freedom (4DOF).
Armstrong is equipped with:

  • Four servo motors
  • A 32-bit CPU (ESP8266)
  • WiFi
  • Five pushbuttons
  • 128*160 color TFT LCD display
  • USB-C
  • Reflective color sensor placed on the tip of its arm

With Armstrong, you’ll learn how to build and code your own sensor-equipped robot arm and how to automate it to perform different tasks.

What you’ll get:

  • Main circuit board with an integrated CPU, WiFi, and USB-C
  • Laser-cut robot arm parts
  • Four servo motors
  • USB-C cable
  • A bag of other small components such as connectors, nuts, and bolts
  • Reflective color sensor
  • An instruction booklet – ready for your offline knowledge consumption
What you’ll learn:

  • how to solder and assemble your very own robotic arm
  • how to use a microcomputer for servo motor control
  • how robotic arms are used in industrial automation
  • how to create a custom program for your robotic arm
  • how reflective color sensors work
  • how to interface a color sensor with your robotic arm to recognize different objects
What you can do with it:

  • Move the robotic arm and play with the preloaded functions as soon as you assemble your Armstrong
  • Code new functions for the implemented microcontroller
  • Use the included Wi-Fi functionality to connect your Armstrong to the internet
  • Learn about industrial automation by creating a custom routine for your Armstrong
  • Use the included color sensor to differentiate different objects that Armstrong grabs

Wheelson and Armstrong make a great team!

Armstrong can easily be attached to your Wheelson – one of the previous STEM Boxes.

Together, they will form a super-cool smart robotic car that can recognize and grab objects.
