Robotic Arm Control Using Parallel Port

Mubashir Farooq, Mudasir Rahman



Nowadays there is an increasing need to create artificial arms for different situations where human interaction is difficult or impossible. Here, we propose to build a robotic arm controlled by MATLAB. A human hand can handle various objects by his hand, with better capacity and precision. In some hostile conditions, a need arises to replicate the human arm movements by some sophisticated manipulator. This study illustrates the controlling of the movements of robotic arm by using the parallel port controller.
