Picaxe or Arduino for robot arm project
September 29, 2011
O.K. i'm a newbie to picaxe and arduino, never used them before but i thought i'd give them a shot for a project i'm going to do.
Right the project is to build a slave robot arm and hand to be controlled in near real time by a set of bend sensors and pots on a glove and arm bracket on my own arm.
Now the the slave robot will be small scale first, and then i'd like to beef up the servos and build a bigger version near 1:1 scale, so the controller would have to be able to work with the bigger servo's later on if that make any difference.
Now i've been looking up the pro's an con's of picaxe and arduino, but i just cant make up my mind what is best for my project.
I've seen people use both for similar projects (like just a hand, or an arm) but not exactly both, so any help would be appricated before i buy one or the other and then find out later i should of bought the other one :)
