Robots are very good at lifting heavy things, because they can be designed to be very strong, stable, and have lots of joints.
Design a strong, stable robot.
The first step to building a robot that can lift heavy objects is to design it for strength. You’ll need to use lots of servos, motors and batteries.
You’ll also need a lot of sensors–at least one per joint in your robot’s body (you can get away with fewer, but it’s better to have more). These sensors will tell the computer how much weight is being applied at each point along its body so that it knows how much force needs to be applied when lifting things.
Plan to use sensors.
The first step to building a robot is to decide what you want it to do. You should plan for your robot’s tasks by deciding on how it will be able to detect objects in its environment and how it will move around the space.
You can use various sensors that are available today: cameras, lasers, sonars and radars are some examples of these tools that can help your bot see its surroundings while moving around them safely.
A camera is one of the most common types of sensor used in robotics today because they tend to be cheap and easy-to-use compared with other options like laser range finders or proximity sensors which require more complex programming skills before they’re ready for use.
Add a few extra joints.
