The past three months at Reach Robotics have involved exciting research, new product developments and significant efforts on ongoing projects. Now with half the year behind us, we’re reflecting on our second quarter highlights for 2023. Catch up on our latest news below:

๐Ÿš€ We finalised our work with the Moon to Mars initiative as awarded by the Australian Government. Catch up on our work preparing robotics manipulators for space environments.

๐Ÿ‘จโ€๐ŸŽ“ Wil Marais, PhD graduate from the Australian Centre of Robotics shared his extensive work with our robotic arms to enhance portable vehicle manipulator systems.

โœˆ๏ธ Our team attended Ocean Business in Southampton, UK and Ocean Technology Conference in Houston, USA. Both afforded opportunities to connect with new and existing customers, as well as our industry peers.

Command Pods

Command Pods are a pair of space mouse controllers comprising of left and right units. They are designed to attach to an ROV control tablet and allow full system control from one interface. The Command Pod configuration simplifies control of a dual-manipulator system as operators are able to intuitively control both arms, while still piloting the vehicle.
The joystick model allows for arms to be directed towards a target while the system automatically maps the arms configuration along that path.


Compatible with all Reach Robotics manipulators, the Master Arm controller is available in five and seven-function models to mimic your robotic arm. Achieve unparalleled precision and accuracy while undertaking complex tasks including:
  • Precise placement of probes for crack and corrosion monitoring.
  • Place and recover objects with unmatched dexterity and minimised
  • Attach hooks and shackles consistently.
  • Reach confined areas unreachable with lower degree-of-freedom manipulators
    and traditional control methods.
