Design and Fabrication of Pick and Place Robot using Microcontroller
Avinash N Bhat | Abhishek Yalnaik
Abstract: Robotic arm has become popular in the world of robotics. The essential part of the robotic arm is a programmable microcontroller-based brick capable of driving basically 3 stepper motors design to form an anthropomorphic structure. In this anticipate an automated arm with four degrees of opportunity is composed and can pick the items with a particular weight and place them in a sought area. To encourage the lifting of the items, Servomotors are utilized. This abstract explains the method of interfacing the robotic arm stepper motors with the programmed PIC16F877A based microcontroller which are used to control the robot operations. A sample robot which can grab and release small objects is built for demonstrating the method explained. In this project, the main application is control of multiple operations and movement of conveyer using time-based Microcontroller. The initial phase of the project focuses on passing the inputs to the microcontroller so as to identify the number of different workstations available in the industry which are specified by the user. Automated pick and place a framework comprises of a preparing station, testing station, and sorting station.
