A Simple and Efficient Wireless Control Protocol for Small Scale Robotic Arm

Abstract

High accuracy and repetitive tasks have become the two contradictory needs of any industrial process. By introducing autonomous robotic applications, simple repetitive tasks can be accomplished keeping the demands of the accuracy and speed in mind. However, developing these applications for industries becomes a major problem to be tackled in terms of cost. In this paper, the design, implementation and experimental results of a simple and efficient wireless control protocol for small scale robotic arm is presented. The main objective of the research was to investigate RF transmission algorithms, design and implement, and obtain a small cost effective full remote control of a robotic arm without the use of a Personal Computer. The system is equipped with joysticks, two Arduino microcontrollers communicating via RF link, and a servo controller. Joysticks are used to fully control the motion of the robotic arm.
