Everyman’s delta robot driven by Arduino

Arduino Robotics Technology

Delta robots use their parallel linkages to maintain a level end effector. This means they’re perfect for placing objects in factory settings and for looking awesome all the time. I think if I had one I’d teach it to beat me at checkers.

Says Juan Uberstadt:

The servos are completely rebuilt. The original control system is replaced my own control loop, implemented in Arduino Duemilanove boards. Also the default potentiometer is replaced by “AS 5043” encoders from “Austria Microsystems”.
