Every Kinova robot is built to empower humans, to complement and augment their capabilities at work and at play.
Whether you need service robots to help you perform daily tasks and gain a greater sense of autonomy, or seek ultra lightweight robotic arms to complete your research and innovation projects more efficiently, our robots will help you achieve more than you ever thought possible. As we say at Kinova, there's no need too small, no task too great
Kinova can customize solutions to help you meet your specific needs. All of our products are designed to augment human capability in any environment — at home, in research labs and medical facilities, in manufacturing plants, and many more.
Our robotics always put the human at the forefront, meaning the individual is always in control of the technology, and the technology always complements the individual. Together, extraordinary results are always within reach.
JACO service robotic arm
Helping humanity reach the impossible since 2006.
The original purpose of the KINOVA JACO service robot is the same today as it was back then, but our signature arm has only evolved and become more refined over time. Each arm features six-axis movement corresponding to shoulder, elbow and wrist, allowing 16 movements in all to mimic the smoothness and versatility of a fully functioning human arm. Made from lightweight carbon fibre, our robotic arm is durable, light to the touch and weather-resistant, and comes standard with our grippers, meaning its three flexible fingers will firmly grasp objects of varying shapes and sizes.
Almost any power wheelchair is capable of full robotic arm integration, and uses its own accumulator to provide energy to the arm. The KINOVA JACO service robot can be mounted on your wheelchair and controlled using the chair’s joystick, head control, sip-and-puff/head array systems or almost any other interface, in any combination. The arm is mounted on your wheelchair to minimize overall width, allowing all seat movements to ensure clearance for transfer and other equipment, as well as maximizing the arm’s reach to access even the floor.
Empower yourself with our robotic arms
Take back control of your activities of daily living. If you’re living with limited or no mobility as result of any of the following conditions, our KINOVA JACO service robot can improve your daily capabilities: amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS), cerebral palsy, muscular dystrophy, spinal muscular atrophy, quadriplegia, upper limb amputation or spinal cord injury.
MOVO Mobile manipulator
Light your path to limitless discovery
The KINOVA MOVO Mobile manipulator series is designed to aid researchers by enabling them to discover innovative approaches and applications for mobile manipulation. Our solutions offer you a unique combination of performance, scalability, modularity, configurability and openness. We’ve designed and developed them entirely using ROS, along with MoveIt! and Gazebo, along with an application programming interface (API) that provides your research team with the most advanced functionality in all areas of robotics.
Unique features, unprecedented performance
Straight out of the box, our signature KINOVA MOVO Mobile manipulator uses internal map creation to guide its ability to navigate autonomously. The platform contains advanced sensors that provide assisted teleoperation, allowing you to drive it without worrying about collisions.
Standardized localization and mapping (SLAM) capabilities also allow for high-performance odometry and easy usage. Connect your mobile manipulator through Ethernet, HDMI, USB or WiFi, and start discovering innovative approaches and applications for mobile manipulation.
Get empowered with our mobile manipulator
The KINOVA MOVO Mobile manipulator brings together state-of-the-art, ROS-native MoveIt! mobile manipulation software and Gazebo robot simulation software, integrated into its open high-end hardware, giving you the best of both worlds. Save yourself valuable time and effort to increase focus on your research topics today.
