Robotic Arm: Team A-November
Team A-November is a lab group for the E-5 robot arm project. The A-November arm consists of two servos, two pieces of aluminum tubing, and various other hardware,used to create an arm of total length 35.5 cm with two degrees of freedom and the ability to be controlled by a computer. Specifically the arm draws a circle in a box, when a MatLab scrip is run.
To build the arm we were given two servos and our choice of several brackets and pieces of tubing. First we attached the servo motors to brackets so that they could be attached to other parts. The first bracket (the "shoulder") is a stand that holds the motor fixed several inches above the writing surface. The second, "elbow", bracket consists of a piece of sheet metal used to attach the servo to the upper arm and a "C" shaped bracket attached to output of the sevo on one end and the lower arm on the other.
