Intro: Project 2: Delta Robot
This is a delta robot, aka a pick & place machine. When done right they can be incredibly fast and accurate. Combined with a camera they can do all kinds of assembly line work. With three more servos I could make a hexapod (aka Stewart Platform) which is a really great way to build a flight/driving simulator.
In my upcoming instructable you will learn:
- how to build the robot
- how to apply high school algebra to program the robot in arduino
- the importance of doing your homework
Here's the SourceForge project with all the code to simulate / run your own. Includes Arduino-ready code, too!
