I am developing a project in which I will use a manipulator arm with a little claw on the end to pick up some objects.
After analyzing the arm, we saw that it is possible to reform it and use it to our classes programming language.
As I have a brief knowledge in the area since automatizei my residence, lights, gates, cameras, alarm among other things I do in my house to learn more about automation system.
The Project (or reform) is to disassemble the arm and clean it, make installation of new sensors limit, or magnetic sensors, installing new engines and / or servo motors to arm movement.
Objective of the project is to move the arm and with a "claw" it pick up an object, present and back in the same place that got him.
I will use the system Parallel Port ... SPP, together with Arduino.
I will use step motors to move it and also servomotors. I hope you enjoy ... sorry for my english.
