25 - United Kingdom - MOVING FURNITURE UPSTAIRS WITH DOMINO AUTOMATIC

SECTOR: Furniture – LONDON, UK

Moving furniture upstairs is no problem at all with the stair climbing robot Domino Automatic.

Our customer in London needed to move an armchair up a long staircase and chose our electric stair climbing robot Domino Automatic. With Domino a single person was able to move the armchair up several flights of stairs effortlessly. As the photo on the left shows, the armchair is tilted as it moves up the stairs and stays parallel with the steps.

The operator did not need any physical effort at all, either to move up the stairs, as Domino Automatic is motorized hand truck, or to keep the load balanced, just pressing the “Automatic” button to ensure the truck automatically tilted the armchair as it climbed the stairs. Manoeuvring the load on the landing was also very simple, as the stair climbing robot Domino has a dual motor mechanism, which makes the tracks fully independent of each other.

Our customer was therefore able to effect 360° turns on the landing of the stairs on which he was moving the armchair.

Why choose a Domino Automatic electric stair climber hand truck to move your furniture up and down stairs?
Domino Automatic is the ideal solution for moving furniture on stairs, for example when moving house. This is because:

It is a stair climber hand truck with crawler tracks and therefore offers greater stability when moving furniture up and down stairs compared with wheeled hand trucks

It comes in three versions, with a load capacity respectively of 160 Kg, 300 Kg and 400 Kg. Very heavy furniture can be moved safely and effortlessly. The load is automatically tilted as it is moved up and down stairs, without the need for the operator to keep it balanced.
It is motorized and fitted with two electric motors, so the tracks can operate independently. This means furniture can be manoeuvred in narrow spaces, such as stair landings or spiral staircases. It can rotate a full 360°

The features of the Domino Automatic stair climbing robot considerably reduce the risk of damaging furniture by colliding with obstacles while moving it up and down stairs. When moving house you can move your furniture directly from the van using the special loading ramp.

The stair climber robot Domino is fitted with a special ramp that enable the furniture to be loaded directly from the van. This accessory is extremely useful when moving home. The adjustable base for extending the truck base to a maximum of 80 cm is equally useful for moving heavy and bulky furniture such as wardrobes, and large domestic appliances such as refrigerators.

26 - Italy, Udine - DOMINO AUTOMATIC WITH 250 KG BOILERS

Boilers – ITALY, UDINE

Wi-Fi Configuration

After power on J-Robot, if its LED keeps flashing in GREEN color for more than 15s, its WiFi is probably not configured properly. Run the “Auto WiFi Config” option in Kiddo Code and then follow the on-screen instruction to configure J-Robot WiFi.

The requirement for J-Robot’s WiFi is as follows

  • 2.4 GHz WiFi, IEEE 802.11n protocol, WPA/WPA2 authentication
  • IPv4 network
  • Allow to access Multicast 234.x.x.x on port 7001, where x is 1 to 100

Make sure iPad is using same Wi-Fi that J-Robot is using.

Tune Home Position

Home position of J-Robot the should be tuned to stand up straight pose as indicated in the below diagrams.

After home position tuning is done, power off and on the J-Robot and wait until its LED change to green to check if home position is set properly.

Arms down

Hand/knee are aligned like this

3 screws on the line; around 95 degrees and robot learns to front a bit

Feet are parallel @ side

Feet are parallel @ front

Procedure

Log into Kiddo Code, open J-Robot Chapter for tuning home positions..

After J-Robot runs motions for dozens of minutes, its home position may be drifted a bit. You may need to tune home positions from time to time.

  1. Tap the “Home” segmented control button
  2. Tag a joint number (1 ~ 18) on the J-Robot image
  3. Move the slider at the bottom to a value to set the joint to home position, or tap on the text field below the slider to input the new value directly

Caution: If setting a joint to an extreme value such that its servo cannot be rotated to the target angle, you will hear a hissing sound and the servo will be burnt easily, especially for the knee and hip joints. Therefore, when you hear a hissing sound, you must not let J-Robot to stay on this pose for long.
Press “JRobot” button

Tag “Joint Calibration”

Tag a joint number to calibrate.
