Introduction: Control Robotic Arm With Gloves, Android Phone and Intel Galileo (Updated)

Picture of Control Robotic Arm With Gloves, Android Phone and Intel Galileo (Updated)

Actually, this project based on another project I have build before. Yet, Instead of building the robotic arm and using Arduino, I used my friend 6DOF robotic arm and Intel Galileo.

Step 1: Components

Picture of Components

1- Intel Galileo Gen 2

2- 1Sheeld

3- 6 DOF Robotic Arm.

4- Android Smart phone.

Step 2: Arduino Sketch and Mobile Application

First, we have to download the 1Sheeld application from Play Store.

Then, download the 1Sheeld library and place it in the Arduino libraries directory. If, It is your first time to deal with 1Sheeld, you should see this getting started tutorial at first.

You will find the code below, it is so easy. Actually, the code simply gets the values of the oreinataion sensor from the mobile for the 3 directions (x,y,z) and map then on the servos and use the proximity sensor to open and close the gripper.

#include <Servo.h>
#include <OneSheeld.h> Servo myservo1; Servo myservo2; Servo myservo5; Servo myservo6; void setup() { OneSheeld.begin(); myservo1.attach(3); myservo1.write(0); myservo2.attach(5); myservo2.write(0); myservo5.attach(10); myservo5.write(70); myservo6.attach(11); myservo6.write(10); analogWrite(6, 200); analogWrite(9, 200); } void loop() { if (ProximitySensor.getValue() > 0) myservo6.write(10); else myservo6.write(120); if(OrientationSensor.getX() > 0 && OrientationSensor.getX() <= 180) myservo1.write(map(abs(OrientationSensor.getX()),0,180,180,0)); if(OrientationSensor.getY() < -90 && OrientationSensor.getY() >= -180) myservo2.write(map(abs(OrientationSensor.getY()),180,90,0,90)); if(OrientationSensor.getZ() > 0 && abs(OrientationSensor.getZ()) <= 60) myservo5.write(map(OrientationSensor.getZ(),0,60,70,180)); if(OrientationSensor.getZ() < 0 && abs(OrientationSensor.getZ()) <= 60) myservo5.write(map(abs(OrientationSensor.getZ()),0,60,70,0)); OneSheeld.processInput(); }

Step 3: Test

After uploading the code on Intel Galileo and installing the mobile applications. Open the mobile application and scan for 1Sheeld via bluetooth and connect to the shield.

Choose the orientation and proximity shields, and then test.

what is kind the servo board

vivekd4 (author)2015-08-12

there , i am working on project in which i have to obtain velocity and
position using an accelerometer , but i dont know how ? can u help me?

vivekd4 (author)2015-08-12

is it possible to track position from accelerometer or orientation sensor?

BarbuC (author)2015-06-30

Can you please send me the drawings of the mechanical parts ? I have some issues with the mechanical work . Thx for instructable , it is awesome ! E-mail:

This is a great project. Congrats!

Thank you so much :)

KumarM (author)2015-02-07

ashraf can u please share the complete working code its urgent @ please hoping to get this small favour from you

ashraf nabil (author)KumarM2015-02-07

Hi KumarM ,, actually the above code is the complete code for the project, since the 1Sheeld library facilitate the coding so much.

That's a pretty darn awesome robotic arm! Thanks for sharing!

ashraf nabil (author)amberrayh2015-01-29

thanks a lot :)
