We develop VR application as remote operation interface to control xArm, for logistics, service, education and inspection maintenance.
Extend Robotics was founded in 2019, it's a special robotic software company that develops human-robot interface software for non-robotic experts to teleopereate and program robotic manipulators remotely for physical tasks.
Extend Robotics found that the unskilled workforce is facing the risk of being substituted, and robotic arm programming is hard to use for non-robotic experts, besides, automation experts are in shortage. So that easy programming is significant, they develop human-robot interface software for non-robotic experts to teleopereate and program robotic manipulators remotely for physical tasks. Extend Robotics also want to form compelling offer to the customer and a good user experience.
xArm cobot is open-source, it supports multiple languages, such as Python, C++,ROS, so that it makes Extend Robotics develop VR application easily. The price of xArm collaborative robot is competitive in the market, it's only 1/3 of the general robot arm, then Extend Robotics offers customers a compelling solution and a good user experience.
I think xArm is a quite attractive cobot solution at the same price range. The design is inspiring and you get the performance quite rarely seen in this price range. The technical setup is reasonably smooth. High performance and great value for money. also great ROS support.
