The following project shows a way to create an internet controlled robotic arm with simple steps and components. Read through to know more.
The project would help the user to build the robotic arm that will be controlled via internet. The robotic arm has a strong rotating wrist mechanism. Basically it works by connecting the Arduino Uno to the SSC-32 servo controller.
Some amount of coding would also be needed in order to bring the robotic arm to life. For this, the inverse kinematics code is used with some slight modifications. The Ethernet shield would also be needed to transfer the instructions to the robotic arm.
The instructions or codes are provided to the robotic arm in the form of aURL string as they are transmitted through the internet. After getting the commands in the URL string format, they are converted into commands that can be easily understood by the SSC-32 servo controller.
A laser pointer has also been added to indicate the direction in which the robotic arm is moving. A distance sensor is also installed that models the performance in quadratic equation. It can be powered off automatically and helps reduce the amount of power consumed
