To this day, despite the increasing motor capability of robotic devices, elaborating control strategies is still a key challenge in the field of humanoid robotic arms. In particular, providing a human “pilot” with efficient ways to drive such a robotic arm requires thorough testing prior to integration into a finished system. To fulfill this need for a biomimetic test platform, we present Reachy, a human-like life-scale robotic arm with seven joints from shoulder to wrist. Its 3D-printed skeleton and off-the-shelf motors make it inexpensive, and its open-source architecture allow it to be integrated into many applications.
