Comparing AR2 vs Niryo

1 comment

Edited: Jan 12

Dear Chris,

Thank you for bringing real robot arm into the open source world.

 

I am new to robotic field. How do you compare Niryo with AR2?

 

AR2 is shining with following points:

7 axis support, excellent aluminium build, software for every movement,

based on Aurdino, decent documentation, capable of industrial use,

Stepper motors mainly used

 

Niryo is shining with following points:

6 axis support, decent build, software for every movement,

based on Aurdino/Raspberry PI, good documentation, educational use only,

Servo motors mainly used

 

 

apart from the basic points, where do you think AR2 perform well?

how special is AR2 compare with Niryo?

 

Regards,

Vasanth

 

 

 

 

 

I think they are both great projects. I think the advantages of the AR2 is rigidity in the use of stepper drive gear boxes. The Niryo seems flimsy with the low cost plastic servos. I think the AR2 software offers some advantages in having a more industrial teach pendant like interface better suited for complex productions tasks.
