Robotic Arm Control Through Human Arm Movement using Accelerometers

Pattnaik, Ashutosh and Ranjan, Rajiv (2013) Robotic Arm Control Through Human Arm Movement using Accelerometers. BTech thesis.



In today’s world there is an increasing need to create artificial arms for different inhuman situations where human interaction is difficult or impossible. They may involve taking readings from an active volcano to diffusing a bomb. Here we propose to build a robotic arm controlled by natural human arm movements whose data is acquired through the use of accelerometers. For proper control mechanism and to reduce the amount of noise coming in from the sensors, proper averaging algorithm is used for smoothening the output of the accelerometer. The development of this arm is based on ATmega32 and ATmega640 platform along with a personal computer for signal processing, which will all be interfaced with each other using serial communication. Finally, this prototype of the arm may be expected to overcome the problem such as placing or picking hazardous objects or non-hazardous objects that are far away from the user.
