DESIGN AND IMPLEMENTATION OF ROBOTIC ARM THAT COPIES HUMAN ARM

Advisor:

Mr. Umer Shahid

Abstract:

The aim of this project is to make a robotic arm that copies the human. The user will get a wearable sleeve and glove that will act as the input device and copy the motion of arm and fingers. This data will be stored in a controller, processed in LabVIEW and sent to the other side where a robotic arm will mimic the motion. In this way, a person can complete a task from a remote location, just by using this device. NI LabVIEW will be used, combined with Raspberry pi 3 using DILIGENT LINX. The application consists of two parts, the controller arm that acts as the input, and the power arm that acts as the output. The controller arm will be a wearable sleeve and glove, and will sense the motion of joints of the arm. The sensors used are mostly potentiometers, because they are cheap and no complex algorithm is needed to process the data. For complex joints, we will use gyroscope. For the power arm, we will use DC geared motors. The geared motors are controlled using a PID control loop inside LabVIEW. Both arms, controller and power arm, will have a controller attached and will communicate using a wired or wireless protocol. The project is aimed to be cost effective.
