DIY Pick and Place Robotic Arm using ARM7-LPC2148 ARM Microcontroller
In this tutorial we will use a 3D printed robotic ARM that was built by following the procedure in thingiverse. The ARM uses 4 servo motor for robotic ARM movement. If you do not have a printer, you can also build your arm with simple cardboards like we built for our Arduino Robotic Arm Project. For inspiration you can also refer to the Record and Play Robotic Arm that we built earlier using Arduino.

Arduino Obstacle Avoiding Robot

In this DIY project, we use Arduino and Ultrasonic Sensor to build an Obstacle Avoider. Here an Ultrasonic sensor is used to sense the obstacles in the path by calculating the distance between the robot and obstacle. If robot finds any obstacle it changes the direction and continue moving.

Robotic Arm Control using PIC Microcontroller

In this tutorial we will use the industry standard PIC16F877A 8-bit Microcontroller to control the same robotic arm with potentiometers. The challenge with this project is that PIC16F877A has only two PWN capable pins, but we need to control about 5 servo motors for our robot which requires 5 individual PWM pins. So we have to utilize the GPIO pins and generate PWM signals on PIC GPIO pins using the timer interrupts. Now, of course we could upgrade to a better microcontroller or use a de-multiplexer IC to make things a lot easier here. But still, it is worth giving this project a try for the learning experience.

Self Balancing Robot using Arduino

Once I started building the self balancing robot, I realized that this bot is a bit of a challenge to build. There are so many options to select from and hence the confusions start right form selecting the motors and remains till tuning PID values. And there are so many things to consider like type of battery, position of battery, wheel grip, type of motor driver, maintaining the CoG (Centre of gravity) and much more.

But let me break it to you, once you build it you will agree that it’s not as hard as it sounds to be. So let’s face it, in this tutorial I will document my experience in building the self balancing robot. You might be an absolute beginner who is just getting started or might have landed up here after a long frustration of not getting your bot to work. This place aims to be your final destination.

DIY Record and Play 3D Printed Robotic ARM

Robotic Arms have proved themselves useful and more productive in many applications where speed, accuracy and safety is required. But to me, what’s more than that is these things are cool to look at when they work. I have always wished for a robotic arm that could help me with my daily works just like Dum-E and Dum-U that Tony stark uses in his lab. These two bots can be seen helping him while building the Iron man suits or filming his work using a video camera. Actually Dum-E has also saved his life once……. and this is where I would like to stop it because this is no fan Page. Apart from the fictional world there are many cool real world Robotic Arms made by Fanuc, Kuka, Denso, ABB, Yaskawa etc. These robotic arms are used in Production line of automobiles, mining plants, Chemical industries and many other places.
