Low-Cost, High Precision, Haptic Robots for the Masses.
Currently robotic manufacturing gravitates toward two poles: high-cost, complex specialized systems; or low-cost, low-performance systems. Haddington Dynamics was created to empower a growing user/community base with robotic solutions that simultaneously break cost and performance barriers. The company accelerates adoption and collaboration by open-sourcing its core technology.
DEXTER (HD) reconfigurable robot has a 3kg payload capacity, a 1.4m spherical open work envelope. Its precision of 0.05mm repeatability independent of load (Load Adaptive Repeatability) also makes HD extraordinary.
We’re not just trying to “disrupt” an industry through a better, cheaper product. Our goal is to revolutionize society by making the fruits of the Robotics Revolution available to everyone. This is why Dexter is open source: hardware, firmware, and software. We want YOU to join us!
Paramount uniqueness is derived from our HD TruTouch technology, which is created using optical measurement, millions of times a second, to achieve total sensory awareness. This haptic interface allows the robot to interact with high resolution force and sensitivity. Ultra-light material used on robot achieves a weight at 6kg
The FPGA control system, enables unprecedented computational performance for advanced control algorithms, vision, neural networks, and digital signal processing (DSP), enabling bio-mimicry and humanlike behaviors. The compact nature of this control system “the brain” fits on the robot and is the size of a cell phone.
