Need help: WT 6 wd w/ 6 DOF arm
March 7, 2013
So I decided for a school project that I was going to try and do a build with the Dagu Wild Thumper 6wd with a 6DOF Arm.
I've already purchased the majority of the required parts needed for the project.
Here's a list of the parts:
Dagu: 6 w.d. WT, 6 DOF arm, WT motor control, and high power switch(to be honest, the soldering job on the MC and HPS looked to have been done by a 5th grader with no soldering experiance! Had to redo them my self!)
2 Turnigy 7.2V 6K mA batteries, HK 6ch RC Tx & Rx, and charger
Arduino Mega 2560 and I also have an Uno and a internet shield.
Only things I plan on still getting is a camera and a router or wifi shield(still debating on that).
Now here is my dilemma. Of all the research I've done for the past couple of months, I have yet to see any kind of codes available for controlling the arm with an arduino. Here is a link of the arm I purchased: http://robosavvy.com/store/product_info.php/manufacturers_id/35/products_id/1595
I know the WT motor controller has 6 servo spots it can connect the arm with, but the issue is the coding needed for it. I got the idea for this project by seeing a picture of the Wild thumper w/ the arm on it(http://www.robotshop.com/dagu-wild-thumper-6wd-all-terrain-chassis-aluminum-34-1.html).
If any one has any experiance with this project, please help this noob out! please let me know if I'm missing anything else and what code I can use to make this project work.
