This Raspberry Pi robotic arm is mainly composed of an aluminum alloy bracket, a sturdy chassis, a multi-function expansion board, 6 bus servos and a 300,000 pixel camera. We built an operating system specifically for it based on Ubuntu20.04/ROS noetic, using Open Source CV and Python3 programming to create a series of AI vision functions. It can be controlled by APP, PC software, handle, JupyterLab. We provide detailed tutorials, open source codes and technical support services for Raspberry Pi players and AI beginners.

I think that this arm is a perfect tool for enthusiasts and professionals alike, offering a hands-on experience in robotics and automation.
I like it! Thanks for technical support for providing me with timely service.
Easy to assemble and use: The instructions for the robotic arm provide clear assembly guidelines and sample code, making it easy to get started.
Stable performance: The quality of the robotic arm servo is very good, and it can accurately grip the color building blocks in the kit.
Software support: Yahboom provides easy-to-use control software, sample code, and libraries for free, and technical support responses are also very timely. Helped me solve many problems.
Now it will take months to get it and released by customs.
Thank you very much!
The manufacturing quality of this product is excellent. The parts of the robotic arm are made of durable materials, with fine assembly process and stable structure. I am very satisfied with the stability and durability of the robotic arm, as it can operate stably for a long time without any malfunction or damage.
Most importantly, during the purchasing process, I encountered some questions and communicated with the supplier. They are very professional and friendly, promptly answering my questions and providing good after-sales support. I was deeply impressed by their customer service, which made me feel at ease and satisfied during the purchasing process.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERS
What kind of controller is used for the Dofbot? Do we have access to low level control parameters? can we implement a low-level velocity controller by ourselves? Also in some of the videos, I saw that there is minor backlash when the motion stops, any suggestion on how to avoid it or compensate for it? Thank you.
Thanks for your question.
1. DOFBOT can use Raspebrry Pi and Jetson NANO.
2. Yes. You can access to low level control parameters. You can control the speed of the servo.
3. The slight rebound is due to the force on the arm. You can solve this problem by changing the speed of the servo or increasing the force on the base of the robotic arm.
I would like to know if there is any possibility of increasing the payload capacity of Dofbot by using a different powerful servo? If such a modification is possible, then what others change are needed to be done, to keep the precision of robot motion and control.
Thanks for your question.
If you can recruit a suitable servo, the load capacity of DOFBOT can be increased.
But you need to consider whether your new servo can be installed on the aluminum alloy structure of the robotic arm, the current size of our servo is: 44.37*23.06"35.12mm
So I would like to purchase the Dofbot Pi version. However i would like to know if there is a possibility for extension, 1. Do you supply any vehicle on which the Dofbot can be mounted 2. Does Yahboom provides different varieties of grippers? 3. Does Yahboom provides and if Dofbot-Pi supports other sensors like LidaR, ultrasonic, etc. ? Thank you.
DOFBOT We do not currently reserve these features you described.
According to your description, the Transbot car is more suitable for you. You can check it: https://category.yahboom.net/products/transbot-pi
I have unboxed the unit. And when I try to calibrate the servos in the app.. I only get a green circle around Servo 1. And nothing else turns green.. what could be the issue ?
Thanks for your support to Yahboom products.

In case of DOFBOT without Raspberry PI version , do you provide the microSD card with OS and Spftware that can be directly used if Raspberry PI is prepared ? Or should I prepare the microSD card and install the Linux OS and Software for the DOFBOT ? I wish you provide us with ready installed microSD card for the DOFBOT system.
Hi Friend, sorry for late reply. There are some time difference, so i didn't reply you on time.
The SD card that has been written into the OS system and software file is the standard configuration of this robotic arm kit. Regardless of whether you purchase a package containing the Raspberry Pi board, you will get a SD card that has been written into the OS and software file. You can use it directly.
Sorry again for late reply.
Is there a detailed description of the expansion board? I have only seen the top level image of the board showing a list of 12 or so components.
Thanks for your question.
You can check this link to get Hardware Interface Manual. Link: http://www.yahboom.net/study/Dofbot-Pi
If I buy the configuration without the Raspberry Pi (I already own one) would it be possible to connect it to the robotic arm? Also where can I find a guide on how to do it
If you have Raspberry Pi board, you just need choose with Raspberry Pi version. The kit will contain all the accessories you need, except the Raspberry Pi.
