Kinova Gen3

by Kinova


We offer the Gen3 both in 6 DoF (degrees of freedom) and 7 DoF configurations 

Extremely versatile and portable, the Kinova Gen3 ultra lightweight robot is pathbreaking, built from the ground up to meet the evolving needs of academic and industry research teams.

For starters, your robot can be used between multiple applications, projects and environments, offering you the most value. It also has exciting, unique features like embedded 2D/3D vision and infinite rotation on each actuatora. What’s more, it’s enabled by Kinova's new pathbreaking software framework and application development platform, KINOVA KORTEX. 


From the base to end-of-arm, everything about this third-generation service robot is designed to complement and enhance what you can do. It’s also the first with built-in discrete 2D and 3D sensors, ideal for vision-based robotic control.

  • Embedded 2D/3D vision
  • 891 mm (6 DoF) and 902 mm reach (7 DoF)
  • 6 or 7 degrees of freedom 
  • Infinite rotation for each actuator
  • Torque sensor in each joint
  • Embedded controller in the base


The Kinova Gen3 ultra lightweight robot is built for human-robot interaction, which means it’s designed to perform its tasks while remaining safe for the people working or passing around it. 

  • Designed to be inherently safe
  • Volumetric safety zones
  • Configurable safety features


Depending on the project, objective and who’s using the robot, you need the flexibility to quickly change end effectors as needed. The new interface module on our third-generation robot allows simple connectivity with a wide variety of end effectors, instruments and sensors.

  • RS-485
  • Ethernet (100 Mbps)
  • GPIOs
  • I2C
  • UART
  • Power
