The PhantomX Pincher AX-12 Robot Arm is a 4 degree-of-freedom robotic arm you can use with Leo Rover. This hardware kit comes with everything needed to physically assemble and mount the arm as a standalone unit or as an addition to your Rover.
The Arm comes with different mounting plate and cable adapters included, so you can easily put it on top of Leo Rover.
Vanadium Labs has developed an ROS stack that makes communication with the robotic arm a breeze. Want to have your robot interacting with the environment and picking up small objects in no time? This is the perfect kit for you!
Please note that the arm currently does not come with supported software. The ROS examples are available and open source, however the PhantomX Pincher Robot Arm is sold as a hardware platform only. The manufacturer expects a comprehensive IK solution and GUI programs to be available in the future. You will need to sand your gripper for smooth operation, more details available in the assembly guide.
