The Ir Armbot is a simple robot arm driven by 2 standard servos but controlled by an ir remote , sending serial information via an ir diod to a reciever that uses a stamp 1 to decode the signal. The code generator is also an stamp 1 , built in the remote.

It took me about 48 hours for both hardware and software the armbot + remote costs approximately $120.

Used parts :

2 9V batteries
1 6V batterie pack for the servos
3 switches
6 buttons , but 4 for the moment
1 stamp1 microcomputer
2 hitec servos HS300
2 small plastic boxes
1 Gripper
1 ir diod
1 ir reciever sharp GP1U5
