I have just been hired to help start a new robotics lab here at the
University of Central Lancashire. As it is often the case with applied
research, this lab is partly funded by the private sector and not much
by the government. Thus, we have little funding.
I would like to buy good education robots and mobile one as well. The
project shall investigate flexible manufacturing using articulated
robots on mobile platforms. Of course, I cannot buy industrial material
since our local is too small, but I still need to buy serious devices
which can survive a lot of experiments. I have come across a few good
proposal but they do not seem to be too many affordable robots between
the toys and the industrial ones.
What do you suggest I look for ? I would like some poeple to givbe
advice on robots they have used ?
