“Our work is aimed at developing service robots that operate side-by-side with humans, in dynamic human environments. Safe and effective operation in close proximity to people is something that Kinova has made a priority in their design, and this is why the JACO has become the manipulator of choice for our service robot applications.”

“In 2003, I sustained a cervical level spinal cord injury after falling from a trampoline. For 12 years, I’ve relied on the assistance of others to pick things up when I drop something on the floor, get me a drink or carry items that I can't pick up. However, my life completely changed the day JACO was in my possession.”

“I think the main area this robot is useful in is building, when you have to interact with physical equipment. It’s ideal if you need to be able to set it up and tear it down very easily, and if you need to use the robot for different applications. It provides adaptability and flexibility to interact with physical equipment. Whether it’s in the fields of aerospace or medicine, it can be a very useful, polyvalent tool.”

“The Kinova Mico robot offers a fantastic research platform. Why? Quite simply because it is robust and easy to use (not forgetting its awesome software), making it the ideal platform to prototype from. The new Gen 3 looks like it has super-sized in terms of hardware, packing an even more powerful punch as a research tool.”
