The DENSO VP-Series 6-Axis articulated robot supplied with Quanser open-architecture control module has all the capabilities of an industrial system, making the workstation an ideal test bed for teaching and research in areas such as teleoperation, robot-assisted surgery, rehabilitation, pick-and-place or welding activities and more.
Quanser technology allows the 6 DOF DENSO Open Architecture Robot Workstation to be bundled with any haptic device supported by QUARC, including the Quanser HD² High Definition Haptic Device to create a high fidelity bilateral teleoperation setup where the forces and torques at the tip of the robot are measured and applied back to the operator through the haptic device.
The DENSO 6 DOF Open Architecture Robot Workstation consists of:
The DENSO VP 6-Axis Articulated Robot is able to position and orient the end-effector within a large workspace. The robot’s motors are commanded using the Quanser control module. The module contains six amplifiers and built-in FF + PID (feedforward, proportional, integral, derivative) controllers. All the gains in the built-in controller are accessible from QUARC DENSO Robot Blockset through 1kHz cross-cable communication. The blockset also has a direct access to the amplifiers’ current commands in the module. User can both tune the built-in controller gains in the QUARC interface, or design their own controller gains in the Simulink environment and command the amplifier currents directly in a fully open architecture scenario.
The DENSO 6 DOF Open Architecture Robot Workstation comes with Quanser-developed courseware. The Laboratory Guide, together with a comprehensive User Manual and pre-designed controllers allow you to get your lab running faster, saving months of time typically required to develop lab materials.
The DENSO 6 DOF Open Architecture Robot Workstation is designed primarily for research applications. Currently, no curriculum material for teaching labs is provided by Quanser.
