Stewart Platform

Stewart Platform

6 DOF modular lab platform for robotics, mechatronics, and controls

ACROME Stewart Platform has developed and designed to understand intermediate to advanced robotics concepts for educational and research purposes.


Stewart Platform can offer realistic simulations at six-axis owing to the high sensitivity of linear actuators, gyroscope, and a three-axis accelerometer. With the accesibile and user friendly components, it is suitable for simulate real systems such as flight simulators, machine tool technology, crane technology, air-to-sea rescue, mechanical bulls, satellite dish positioning, telescopes, and orthopedic surgery.

Every unit of the Stewart platform is controllable independently with the modifiable open-source software and students can understand the effects of different controller types on the system. With the extensive courseware, students have the opportunity to learn essensial aspects of robotics and easily cover controller design concepts.
