The Elephant Robotics myCobot 280 for Arduino is one of the world’s most compact and lightweight 6-axis robotic arms. The device belongs to , alongside myCobot 280 Pi, myCobot 280 M5Stack, and myCobot 280 Jetson Nano models. All the four modifications share the same mechanical construction, with the key difference in the hardware, or, more precisely, the processor the model is based on; and, consequently, some variations in operation, capabilities, and application scenarios.

The products from the lineup weigh only 850 grams, with the maximum load capacity of 250 grams and the working radius of 280 mm. They are all Linux-compatible, have built-in ROS and Python support, and feature Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity.

The Elephant Robotics myCobot 280 for Arduino is not equipped with a built-in mainboard, so you need to use one of Arduino development boards to start programming. The cobot base is equipped with 5 groups of 2.54 mm DuPont expansion interfaces that can be used to connect Arduino MKR WIFI1010, MEGA2560, UNO, or other Arduino-compliant development board.

The end of the arm houses the ESP32-based M5Stack Atom development board with a 5 x 5 RGB LED matrix panel, additional GPIO pins, an IR sensor, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth modules, a programmable button, and a USB-C port. The arm end is equipped with a Lego-compatible connector that expands the cobot’s customization opportunities and allows for quick and easy installation of multiple end effectors, including grippers, suction pumps, sensors, cameras, and much more.

The Lego-compatible base of myCobot 280 for Arduino allows you to attach an optional flat or G-shaped base for enhanced stability.

 

Processing quality

Six high-performance servo motors of myCobot 280 for Arduino provide quick response and smooth rotation of the six joints with the repeatability of ±0.5 mm which is surprisingly good for such an affordable consumer device. This makes the cobot suitable for a wide application range not limited only to home use.

 

Applications

The Elephant Robotics myCobot 280 for Arduino is a versatile compact robotic arm providing incredible educational opportunities and helping children explore the world of robotics and master basic coding skills. Due to its compatibility with various development boards, it can be easily customized for specific tasks, and its Lego-compatible interface expands its application range even further. For example, myCobot 280 for Arduino can use the color recognition function to demonstrate how industrial robots perform sorting tasks.

Robot controls

After you install the development board, you have several ways of programming myCobot 280 for Arduino.

You can use myBlockly visual coding tool based on block programming method. This is a great and simple way to make first steps in programming for beginners and kids.

Finally, you can use the simplest drag-and-teach method to show the cobot the required succession of moves. Here again we spot the difference between the four versions of the 280 series. myCobot 280 M5Stack with its built-in screen can operate independently, while the Raspberry Pi and Jetson Nano models require an external display. The Arduino version needs a computer connection for operation.

The Elephant Robotics myCobot 280 for Arduino is an open platform that supports various Arduino development boards.
