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!


Original Design (picture)

Original Robotic Arm

Project Description

  • Disassemble original arm.
  • Attach three extra motors; five total.
  • Zero-Out each.
  • Test out the movements.
  • Find right coordinates for presentation.
  • Stabilize and refine the final product.

Matlab Code

Final Program

Difficulties

  • Construction:

- Stability. Keeping the arm level.

  • Programming:

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