Control systems for a robot arm.

(1/2) > >>

idee17:
I have been looking into various control systems for a robot arm. One of the methods I have been looking into is color tracking. I thought this could be done by using a glove with a color on one finger and two cameras to get 3D. One of the cameras could capture X and Y axis, and the second camera could capture Z axis. I know this could be done with one camera, by decrease and increasing size of the colored area, but I would like to keep it simple. Has anyone else done something similar, or any better ideas for robot arm control systems?

PS the area the arm need to operate is around 70 X 70 X 70 cm.

Simpler would be to build a second arm (generally a smaller version) that you position by hand, and which the real arm mimics.

I have thought about doing that, but I would like to have a very simple user interface. Also I thought I could use the hand tracking system for other projects later on. Thanks for the reply Grertlex.

Gertlex:
Simple... to use? Or to implement? :P

Ideally very intuitive and easy to use.
