Flor, O., Fuentes, M., & Toapanta, C. (2020). Criteria for the design of an educational robotics platform. Athenea, 1(1), 29-40.


This document explains the criteria, considerations and formulations used for the design of the main components of a mobile platform with a robotic arm. This type of robot is one of the most used in the educational field, it facilitates learning and allows the incorporation of control strategies for navigation. Aspects of resistance of materials useful for branches of engineering that lack bases on mechanics are raised.

Keywords: Design; robot; platform; educational.
