SparkFun Robotic Arm Clock with Ethernet Shield

July 17, 2013
Tags: ,

After I learned how to code the Arduino and work with the SparkFun claw, I wanted to build something that could be useful, stay out of the way, and always be running. I settled on a clock. To incorporate the robotic arm in to the clock I set the arm up to move like a […]

This code allows you to control the arm with serial commands.  The keys 1-6 are used to control the servos. /* Robot console This code will control the arm via serial commands */ #include Servo.h Servo servo1; //base-pan Servo servo2; //arm-tilt Servo servo3; //claw void setup() { Serial.begin(9600); servo1.attach(9); //pan range is 20 to 140 […]

I have continued to tweak the code for the robot demo. I call this code Robot Instructions. It allows me to call two different functions. The first function moves the arm very quickly and the second function moves the arm slowly. This is for the Arudino Uno with a three servo robotic arm sold from […]

Here is some more example code for a 3 servo arm. I call this the robot demo. It simply moves the robot around slowly. /* Robot demo */ #include // servo library Servo servo1; //base-pan Servo servo2; //arm-tilt Servo servo3; //claw int posf1 = 140; //pan int posf2 = 90; int posf3 = 90; void […]

For Christmas 2012 I got the SparkFun Robotic Arm. I was unable to find any beginners guides that encompassed the full assembly and code. Here is my attempt. As a warning, I have no background experience in Arduino or electronics. Be sure to read the SparkFun product guides to know what additional equipment needs to be purchased. My build was […]

My current project is a joint effort with my friend Vinny. He has allowed me to work on his project of transforming a R/C car into a robot that can be controlled from the internet. The car was stripped of everything except the wheels, chassis, servos (motors), and power switch/power cord. Vinny then added a […]
