Introduction: How to Make Record and Play Servo Based Robotic Arm
Record and play servo robotic arm
Step 1: Servo Based Robotic Arm Introduction
hello friends in this instructables i will show how to make a robotic arm with record and play function
In this project i used four mini servo and four potentiometer
Read from potentiometer is record to arduino board in teach mode and those steps are payed in loop in play mode.
To make this project run smoothly I prepared a PCB layout and order it from
JLCPCB.COM as soon as you get PCB you just need to solder header pins, pushbuttons & resistor and your robotic arm ready to run.
JCLPCB is PCB manufacturing company they provide upto 10 prototype PCB in just 2$ with first shipping free it was a great deal.
If you need any PCB to order you can consider to visit JLCPCB.COM
Step 2: Material Required
Step 3: Procedure
Arrange all necessary items..
Please go through the attached images and video for better understanding..
I divide whole project in two parts
1) Servo Motor assembly
2) Potentiometer assembly
1) Servo motor assembly: - Servo motor as J1, J2, J3, J4 fix the servo motors as shown in image use 3M tape to glue servo, use thin flexible plastic strip to make griper, make hole in center of each finger tie thread in that hole pass this thread from center hole and tie knot at the other end of thread with 4th servo motor’s knob, as you stretch thread finger get close vise versa. Fix whole arrangement on strong rigid base.
2) Potentiometer assembly: - Fix potentiometer as shown in figure name potentiometer as do previous R3, R4, R5, R6 this time place R6 separately for easy access this potentiometer control gripper to pick and place. Potentiometer arrangement symmetry must be same as servo arm. Fix whole arrangement on strong rigid base.
Step 4: Programming
Upload the attached code to the arduino
Its done your robot is ready to work Now move potentiometer meter meanwhile record the position by pressing record button one time,
To play to the recorded moves double press the play button Thanks for your attention Don't forget to subscribe our youtube channel https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsOFElmDD3e8l-RG...

We have a be nice policy.
Please be positive and constructive.
Thank you for sharing. How many coordinates is your system capable of recording?
Sir can we use same program for Arduino Uno
We have built the mini robot now!
I used ARDUINO UNO (with 328p amega) so 32kb memory!
At uplod code I get low memory .. the code is downloaded in microcontroller!
When doing the tests: move the 4 servo, if you move the 4 potentiometers! But the play function does not work !!! As if nothing is memorized!
Please help me?
