Title: ROBOT ARM AND UNMANNED AIRCRAFT PROVIDED WITH SAME
Abstract:
In order to address the problem of providing a robot arm that can be suitably used in an aircraft, and an unmanned aircraft provided with the same, this robot arm mounted on an aircraft is characterized by being provided with an arm part that has a plurality of joint parts, an arm control means that controls the driving of each joint part, and a displacement detection part that detects positional changes and tilting of the arm parts, wherein: base end sections of the arms parts are coupled to the aircraft; at least tip sections of the arm parts are exposed to the outside of the aircraft; and when the displacement detection part detects a positional shift that is an unintended positional change or tilt of the arm parts, the arm control means uses the joint parts to absorb the positional shift, thereby suppressing the positional shift from being transmitted to the tip sides of the arm parts.
