Robotic Arm

Background

  • Raspberry PI high level controller with ROS handles trajectory management, IK, Configuration data, calibration.
  • ATMEL platform with Arduino for low level control of actuators.
  • PC application developed in QT serves as an interface to the user allowing manual jogging, trajectory building, changing configurations, etc.
  • Geared DC motors with encoders used

Our solution

  • Design and implement the Raspberry PI high level controller from the ground up
  • Implement PC application communication protocol and 3D robot model viewer
