Thread: My robot arm(s) project - Arduino controlled.

  1. My robot arm(s) project - Arduino controlled.

    Howdy,

    I have been busy designing some robotic arms based on servos, controlled by an Arduino.

    So far I have 2 built, using different configurations. The 1st uses high torque metal geared servos.

    It is simply controlled from a serial port, you send an integer angle value followed by the addressable servo. eg:

    45w = Move wrist 45 degrees.
    90r = Move the main base 90 degrees.

    I wrote a VB.net app that allows you to move sliders to send these values, record movements and their playback speeds. Also you can write the chosen default start-up values to the Arduino's EEPROM, so on next power up it will slew to that position.

    Here is a quick video of it in action.



    I'll be adding the second to this post when I have shot a video of it.

  2. Re: My robot arm(s) project - Arduino controlled.

    Whoops, I have managed to brick 2 servos tonight :-( I'll post the other when I have fixed them.
