The Sapien 6M robotic arm can be mounted on an autonomous mobile platform for mobile manipulation.

Everything is embedded in the intelligent robotic arm, and no external control box is required to control and power the robot. Its end-effector interface allows for integrating various end-of-arm tools with no issue.

With six degrees of freedom, the end-effector has precise positioning thanks to continuous wrist and elbow roll joints. In the video below, you can see the Range of Motion (ROM) of this robotic arm.
