The Windows environment is a very powerful tool in enhancing the experience of computer users. DOS applications have become obsolete. This study focuses on the upgrade of the current DOS based controller of the CRS Robotics A255 robot arm to a user-friendly Windows GUI. A graphical simulation of the robot arm is presented on screen. Any change in the position of any of the joints in the simulation is mimicked by the actual robot arm. This is made possible with the use of MATLAB, with the aid of the robot toolbox by Peter Corke. A new external controller was made to drive the motors of the robot arm. All data exchange between the host computer and the robot controller is done through serial communications. Experiments done on the CRS A255 robot arm proved that the redesigned robot controller in conjunction with the MATLAB simulation was reliable.
