Robot Lazer Beam Project


The aim of the final project is to construct a Robot Arm, like the one constructed in the previous lab, but with a lazer attached to the end. The lazer will have to rotate in 3 dimensions. We will use Matlab to construct a code to control the robot arm servo motors in order to move the lazer. We will use inverse kinematic equations to control the angles at which the robot arms function. We will also program a joy stick using Matlab in order to control the angles of the robot arm. This joy stick will determine the angles and input them into matlab which will write to the servo motors. We will have the arm beam at five specific points to have a five-poins star.
