This project is a didactic Robot. It is a small industrial robot with 5 DOF (Degrees of Freedom). It has a workspace of 520mm and it can pick a 1 kg load. The gripper is changeable. Its electric motors are servo motor. The microprocessor used in this robot is Atmel (Atmega168 ). Therefore, it is controlled by its own software via a computer in addition to be controlled through a teachpendent. The connection port between robot and PC is RS232 or USB.
To set the duty for this robot at first the program should be written in the software by setting some points and adding commands. Hence the robot executes the commands in order to have a defined motion. This robot can be combined with a rotating table or conveyor system to perform a more complicated task. This is very important in the product lines of factories.
One specification of this robot is the capability of robot to rotate all its joints simultaneously that results in an optimized smooth motion which leads to have efficient linear velocity in the end effecter. The defined functions of this robot are useful for training robotics, mechatronics and automation in universities and applied science universities.
