I am looking to make a robot arm that is controlled via radio.
The arm needs to be able to pick up wooden pieces that can range from 0.5lbs to 10lbs and carry them a fair distance. I already have a moving robot, but I am just stuck on what to do to pick up the pieces.
I have parts readily available to me as long as if I don't have to buy a whole arm that's already pre made.
I have servos, arduinos, circuits, aluminium sheets - bars - rods - etc.
There are a lot of mitigating factors thast need addressing to give a good answer to this one.
What range of movement will the arm need?
How far is the arm going to have to reach from it’s base to clear the moving robot?
How much flexibilty does the arm need to have?
The answers of these questions will all influence an answer; the longer the arm, the more torque the motors need to have and the stronger the structure of the arm needs to be. And other stuff to that tune
