Flex Sensor Based Robotic Arm Controller Using Micro Controller


Sensor plays an important role in robotics. Sensors are used to determine the current state of the system. Robotic applications demand sensors with high degrees of repeatability, precision, and reliability. Flex sensor is such a device, which accomplish the above task with great degree of accuracy. The pick and place operation of the robotics arm can be efficiently controlled using micro controller programming. This designed work is an educational based concept as robotic control is an exciting and high challenge research work in recent year.
