Abstract

The robotics industry is rapidly evolving driven by better and cheaper computer chips and affordable 3D printing technologies. All these aspects are a catalyst that helps in building new concepts and prototypes at a lower cost, easier and faster than ever before. This paper presents the entire process of building an articulated robotic arm with 6 Degrees Of Freedom (DOF) and a gripper, all con-trolled from a designed Arduino command centre. The project will go through the 3D designing process and the selection of different actuators. Then an optimization of the hardware options for controlling the motors and the software to operate the robotic arm is presented. Finally, advantages and drawbacks of the proposed architecture are discussed.
