Welcome to Roboticists. Roboticists design, build, program, and experiment with robots. Since robotics is a highly interdisciplinary field, roboticists often have backgrounds in a number of disciplines including computer science, mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, and computer engineering. Roboticists often work for university, industry, and government research labs, but may also work for startup companies and other entrepreneurial firms. Amateur Robotics is also a growing hobby all over the world.

The Robo-One games in Japan and the Robogames in the US have inspired a new growing hobby of kit built or home built and designed robots. Many of the advances in robotics are occurring in people’s home garages and workshops like the early days of aviation or computers.

Thank you for visiting and supporting Roboticists.

The AX-18A servo actuator from Robotis is the next step up from the hugly popular AX-12A Servo, offering nearly twice the speed and 15% more torque! The AX-18A robot servo retains the formfactor and all of the same features of its predecessor: the ability to track its speed, temperature, shaft position, voltage, and load. As if this weren't enough, the control algorithm used to maintain shaft position on the AX-18A actuator can be adjusted individually for each servo, allowing you to control the speed and strength of the motor's response. All of the sensor management and position control is handled by the servo's built-in microcontroller. This distributed approach leaves your main controller free to perform other functions. Note: The AX-18A does NOT include mounting and bracket hardware, this is sold separately
