i am working on my master's thesis about design and construction of universal robotic arm. Goal of my work is to design 5 DOF robotic arm. Something like on the picture:
I need it to be able to lift a weight about 5kg. It has to move in "action radius" 1m. Rotation speed should be about 1m/s. The conclusion of my work should be like: "You can buy ABB robotic arm or you can but this..it can lift that much, can turn that speed and weighs that much". Basic construction should be done too. Maybe with some simulation.
First of all - i picked really bad master's thesis for me, i know that know. Second - i have like month to finish it. I would like to ask someone how to proceed. I know that first step is to pick servos/actuators/gearboxes, but which one? What is realistic weight of the whole arm which should lift another 5 kg of weight? How strong motors should i pick or with what gearboxes?
Is anyone able to help me via maybe emails?
