    Robot manipulator is electronically controlled and environment cooperative instrument. This project intendeds to design two links (base and first joint) of a 6 DOF Industrial Manipulator, low in cost.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    There are various explorations done on mechanical robotic arms because of rapidly increasing usage trends. The project intends to design the instrument capable of lifting 10kg as well as being cost efficient. Such an innovation will be capable of filling the automation void in Pakistani industry.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   Pakistani industry is based on cost efficient products with low investments. Most of our industry is handskilled due to the same reasons. Approximately 2000 such small industries exist contributing about Rs 20 billion per annum. This production sector can be expedited through inexpensive robotics.
How will the solution works
    The greatest payload-to-weight proportion of a robotic manipulator is just 1:20. The instrument will be capable to lift 10kg of payload.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    There are no known competitors in this field of research.
