On the 17th of March, Ben Steer, Yige Cao and Harry Kadi from our Research and Development (R&D) Team attended the University of Sydney, Sydney University Mechatronics Organisation (SUMO) Industry Night. It was a fantastic opportunity for our Reach Robotics’ team members to connect with ambitious students and graduates across the Engineering disciplines.

Harry, Yige and Ben attending University of Sydney, SUMO Industry Night

SUMO, a student-run society within the Faculty of Engineering and Information Technology (FEIT), provides students enthusiastic about mechatronic engineering exposure to professional opportunities through social events. The Industry Night was an exciting evening for us to speak with students about what we do at Reach Robotics, provide real examples of work at the company, discuss career pathways, and direct interested undergraduates to internship opportunities with us.

“During my time as a student, I often found it difficult to envision how the coursework would be used on a day-to-day basis in a business setting, so it was nice to now be able to fill in those gaps for current students.

It was nice to see so much interest in the company – many students were eager to speak to us and genuinely wanted to learn about what we do. Many had already heard of us and were interested in internships. It was also a great chance to catch up with some previous Reach interns who came to the event!”

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.
