Design your own robot for learning research

When I started working on editing environments, I was often needing to design my own robot and scene, but was always a bit afraid to overcome the significant barrier to do so.

The purpose of this blog post is to teach you all how I do it, and hopefully convince you you can do this too!

Let us start!!!

  • a 3D scene with objects, artifacts, tools, machines and furniture
  • a robot
  • actuators and sensors

3D scenes

an example environment from Google Research


Universal Robots arms

Actuators and Sensors

  • links
  • joints
Here is my simple robot gripper

Final words

Keep the innovation rolling!!!
