SignArm / Robotic arm


SignArm can simulate the signatory’s action synchronously in real time and complete the signature work as the signatory. The signatory can hold a special electronic pen and control the robot arm remotely through the Internet to realize the signing action. Their strength and angle are identical, which can create the same signature effect as signatory. At the same time, the signatory can also view the working state of the robot arm through the Internet and confirm the signing process in real time.
