Dagu Robotic Arm 6DoF - Bacuri02 Project

I recently received my Dagu Robotic Arm 6 DOF with Arexx control board 32 servos.

My original project is to use an Arduino Mega to control the arm and then make a wifi connection joystick control.

As I have not received my Arduino Mega board, I started tinkering in Arexx control board that I received along with the robotic arm. Along with the kit also came with a CD ROM which I believed the program to be installed on the computer to control the arm.

DIY LED Sign with MAX7219 Dot Matrix Module STM8S003F3 MCU for AVR PIC MSP430 Arduino ARM STM32

To satisfy electronic DIY hobbyists, ICStation has developed MAX7219 Dot Matrix Module. It uses the Max7219 chip which do a great job on saving of MCU I/O. It can not only control each point individually, but also can be extended without limitation to meet your requirements on LED Sign, Team Logo and so on.

Timed Actuator ( automatic timed Button pusher )

Hello, 

I need to build an actuator, arm, robot or something which will press a button for me, I mean on a keyboard, alarm clock, or any other button, hold it pressed for some interval and then let go. I need to be able to configure this interval very precisely, up to 10th of a second. I was thinking of getting an actuator, and interfacing it with some mechanism which will allow me to set the timer very precisely. I am more into computer software than mechanical/electrical engineering, so please bear with me. 

 

Thanks in advance for any replies.

Much like the dummy in Iron Man he will be my little helper, recording my videos for me.  Read more

Advanced Robot Arm Project

This is a long term project to develop a robotic arm that is more advanced that traditional hobbyist arms using RC servos without being so expensive that only well funded universities can afford it. 

The first prototype gripper used standard RC servos while we experimented with the configuration as shown in the first video. Once I had a good gripper configuration I built a prototype arm for it as shown in the second video. This arm used a differential drive system with the goal being to keep the weight of the motors as close to the shoulder as possible.

Robotic Hand

Just found this on The Reg:

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2012/11/09/video/

Pretty awesome stuff with muscle controlled robotics.

This is my project [DON'T LOOK, JUST BORING]


STARTED 5.7.2012

Okay, so here's my project, what i am designing.
It is a robot arm!
Some stats:

- 4 servos, not very big
- PICAXE 14M as brain
- SM-S3317S 2.0kg at 4.8V
- 4 Rechargeable 1.2V batteries
- Polymorph and lightweight woodsticks as materials 
- Maybe somekind of sensor and IR receiver
- Potentiometer to control

Pictures coming soon!

This robot is an autonomous robot capable of interacting with its environment, it may Understand oral orders and can speak. It can move and reach for objects.

Servos energy (Robotic Arm)

Update:

Well, now that I have time for this robot I've discovered that the SSC32 supports at maximum 9 volts and my PSU is 12 volts. The website for robotshop says 6v to 12 volts but the documentation says 7.2v. Help me please

Cheers

Hi, I'm working on a robotic arm, but I don't know what power source purchase. My servos are the problem:

Uber cheap build idea, needing input...

I'm looking to build an uber-cheap robot arm, with the purpose of just sitting on my desk and picking up whatever i want it to... Probably stick with a basic control (independent forward, off, reverse switches on each motor) setup. What i'm trying to figure out is, I'm planning on using a standard 3 wire (forward, ground, reverse) style motor similar to that found in a cheap rc car, yet i can't find any places to buy them, except in the cars. any sugestions?

This robotic hand can be controlled by a sensor-glove or a graphic program.
