M1 Mobile Manipulator: Manual Dexterity and Force Control on the Go
At Meka we believe that robots designed to work in human environments require mobility, dexterity, and compliant force-control. We created the Meka M1 to meet these needs. The M1 is an integrated and customizable mobile manipulation platform.
The M1 was inspired by the successful design of the Georgia Tech robot named Cody. It features compliant force control throughout its body, a customizable sensor head, durable and strong grippers, and a small footprint omnidirectional base.
In robotics, innovation requires robot-on-time. The M1 has been designed for durable operation and rapid experimenation and development. It includes the M3 and ROS software stacks, including a KDL kinematics and dynamics descriptions, ROS URDF descriptions, ROS interfaces, and calibration-free startup for the upper-body.
Meka can work with your institution to find grant funding for the M1 system of your choice. The M1 is a competitively priced mobile manipulator. Please inquire for a quote on the M1, or M1-Custom.
