Microcontroller Implementation of a Small Robot Arm Controller

Our senior project aims to design and develop assembly language for a small robot arm assembly controller, utilizing an enhanced 8051 microcontroller (80535). In addition to the controller’s software, we will design and construct the microcontroller interface circuitry. Our investigation will focus on incorporating safety features, such as motor current limit protection and motor disable …

Prototyping with Microcontrollers, Sensors, and Materials

Prototyping Prototyping involves the creation of an initial model of a product to conduct testing. Whether the product is intended for consumers, government entities, or businesses, it typically starts as a prototype, which may not include all the components or functionalities present in the final market-ready version. Prototypes act as proof of concept, demonstrating that …
