Venture into the world of robotic arms with the Braccio from Arduino! The arm comes complete with multiple configurations as seen below.

Braccio Setup Examples

The Braccio was made to be a versatile robotic arm that anyone with some Arduino know-how can pick up and use. You can use the jaws on the end of the arm to pick up anything less than 300 grams.

Some great applications of the Braccio that we have seen are:

  • Mounting a camera and use the Braccio to track objects 
  • Video conference tracking by holding your phone.
  • Solar panel holding and using the Braccio for Solar tracking

Braccio Various Uses

The Braccio is only sold as part of a kit that requires you to put it together prior to use!

There's a illustrated setup guide in the box, or you can download it here.

After assembly, you can download the Braccio libraries and examples here. There are a couple of alignment steps that will calibrate your Braccio's servo motors. The "TestBraccio90" sketch will position the Braccio in the verticle position shown below. If you run the sketch, and your Braccio doesn't look like the image below, you'll need to re-align the servos.

Power

A regulated 5 V DC @ 5000 mA power supply provided in the box, which is the recommended supply for powering the Braccio. The Braccio is powered via the TinkerKit shield, not via the Arduino power jack.

Braccio Specifications

Braccio Shield: The maximum length and width of the Braccio Shield PCB are 2.7 and 2.1 inches respectively, with the power jack extending beyond the former dimension. Four screw holes allow the board to be attached to a surface or case. Note that the distance between digital pins 7 and 8 is 160 mil (0.16"), not an even multiple of the 100 mil spacing of the other pins.
