Gesture Controlled Trainable Robot Arm Via Bluetooth to Arduino

About: I am a student of computer engineering

There are two modes in the Arm.

First is Manual Mode that you can move the arm with bluetooth in your mobile phone by move the sliders on app. At the same time, you can save your positions and you can play...

Second is Gesture Mode that uses your phone's Oriantation Sensor and Proximity Sensor. When they are changed, app sends commands to arduino...

KureBasArm - This is another step for new robot KureBas v 3.0

    Question 1 year ago on Step 4

    hey i made the kurebas arm but with sg90 micro motors. I have not used the 16 channel servo shield . I want to use your app for gesture control . Can you tell me what to change in the arduino ino code so to remove the shield code but still use the same app to control the arm ?

    thanks for the project!
