Programmed Controller for a Rigid SCARA Robot Links
The Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm (SCARA) robot arm has a complex mechanism as it tries to
imitate the human arm for performing tasks. In this paper, the implementation of a PID controller using visual C# environment
is presented. Hardware and software solutions are chosen is to keep the costs at a minimum. A GUI is designed to monitor and
control the robot arm in real-time. The final controller performances are monitored and analyzed. This opens a new,
innovative, inexpensive and flexible environment for controller implementation.
