thesisposted on 2022-03-28, 12:46 authored by Ishrak Hasnain
A good learning platform is an essential part of a student's learning outcome. In this document, study and research on a Crust Crawler AX-12A Smart Robotic Arm is stated. This includes the details of the hardware used, the assembly procedure, software used and experimental procedure. The project was conducted to develop a learning platform with laboratory instructions to help students learn how to control a robotic arm. The key component used in this project is the AX-12A Dynamixel motor which is a smart servo motor with its own microcontroller and memory. Nine laboratory experiments were developed based on LabVIEW which would allow students to learn from basic controls to performing a repetitive or conditional operation. Limitations and issues faced during the process are also shared.
