Goals

  • Improve original robotic arm:
  • We will add three more motors.
  • Claw to replace pencil holder.
  • This will allow the robot arm to pick objects up (perhaps glasses of water) and pour them.
  • Waiters will become obsolete!

Project Description

  • Disassemble original arm.
  • Attach three extra motors; five total.

  • Stabilize and refine the final product.

Difficulties

Construction: - Stability. Keeping the arm level.

Programming: - Calibrating five zero values. - Coordinating the motors to result in smooth motion.
