Robotic arm : Master/Slave
June 9, 2009 Leave a comment
This is a first small project that I make.
It is a robotic arm which follow the movements of my own arm.
To do this, I have to modify some servomotors to put them in mode : “position sensor”.
This modification make that an output gives a proportional voltage depending on the servo’s position.
Here is a small tutorial on how to do that modification.
A Java software has been written to be able to get the sensors informations from the serial port and send the right values in real time to the robotic-arm’s servomotors.
Here you can see this arm project in action :
