|Robot arm commanded by a microcomputer. The processor used is a onechip processor from Intel (80c196KB). 12 MHz, 32K RAM, 16K ROM. I use an IBM PC compatible computer to send command sequences via the serial port (LPT1) to the 80c196KB. The 80c196KB transformes the command sequences to pulses which make the robot to move. The PC program is a simulator. You can make a simulation and see how the robot will move. The program language I used to program the 80c196KB and the PC was C.
I used Playwood and aluminium to build the robot. The robot is commanded by four R/C servos (HITEC HS-300).
