This prototype selective compliance assembly robot arm (SCARA) possesses three (3) degrees of freedom and is intended for instructional and demonstration purposes. It is used to stimulate pick and place operations in actual industrial type robots.
The devices which were used to move the manipulator joints are stepper motors which are controlled by a personal computer. The whole setup is an open loop system but it employs electronic switches for initialization.
A high-level language compiler (Turbo Pascal 7.0) was used in the software for the control of the robot arm and to provide a Graphical User Interface (GUI).
