Places the components on PCB First component I added to my Motors Controller Board is power connector (JP4). Second component I added was JP2 - 2x6 ...
Connected the ground or negative(-) pin of the Power Jack to Switch S1.
I added first motor driver IC to the board. This motors driver are used to control Grip (M1 - as shown in the Robotic Arm Manual) and wrist (M2) of th...
Connect the motors power supply to pin 8 of middle H-Bridge ICs. Connect pin 16, 5V pins, of three H-Bridge ICs together. Then connect the 5V pins on...

I added Bluetooth connector as an alternative. If you want to use Bluetooth instead of Xbee, you have to remove XBee module. And you have to remove B...
I want to conserve the existing battery power supply, also I want the Arduino to have its own power supply. So I decided to add the 9V battery to the ...
Following sketch is for testing the motors and LED light. The sketch only test Robot's base motors. To test another motor, add the functions i.e grip...
In order to cntrol the Robotic Arm with the XBee, we need two XBee Modules, and one FTDI cable. One XBee module will be connected to Arduino without F...
Following are the Arduino Sketch and Processing Source Code (both Arduino Sketch and Processing are in the same zip file below) : If you are using t...
