We needed a platform to test our new MICILE / Arduino user interface. The robot hand and arm seemed like something complex enough to really give the concept a comprehensive workout. The project allowed us to use a MICILE Tablet, an Arduino Uno board (and sensor shield) to easily control a robot arm. The interface is clean and simple. We think you will find that the the MICILE Tablet is a great compliment to any Arduino project. All the code can be found at www.micile.com.
The Arduino is a cheap, fun way to get into building your own electronics. It can also be daunting to get started. Here, we’ll show you how to get a start-to-finish Arduino primer with a killer project: building a sweet robot arm.
