This fully sensored, multi-articulate limb is capable of achieving movement in 26 degrees of freedom. The limb provides the BLINC Lab access to a ton of useful functionality and data. After an in depth training session with engineering personnel from HDT Robotics the limb is up and running. Our engineers are eager to start programming and playing with this incredibly advanced piece of equipment.
