PC Control These demos and projects allow the robot to be controlled via a computer.

ArbotiX Commander Control - These demos and projects control the Robot using the ArbotiX Commander, the handheld Arduino based remote control.

Direct Control - These demos and projects control the Robot directly from sensors connected directly to the Robot's control board.

Pose Control - These demos and projects allow you to create and playback a sequence of poses.

Serial Control - These demos and projects control the robot using a serial packet protocol.

Standalone - These demos and projects are deisgned to let your robot function without a computer or additional microcontroller.

Wireless Control - These demos and projects allow you to control the robot wirelessly - usually by replacing the Serial Connection with XBee modules.

Reference - These articles have technical details regarding the control and operation of the robot.

  • InterbotiX Arm Link Software - Advanced Use with Processing 3.0

    Description:

    Go here for usage instructions for the Arm Link Software. If you're looking for info for using Processing 2.0 see here.

    This article will get you started in editing and building the Arm Link Software from the source code.

    The InterbotiX Arm Link software allows you to connect and control RobotGeek/InterbotiX Robotic Arms. Working with the source code will allow you to customize the Arm Link Software as well as learn more about the Arm Link Protocol.

  • Nifty Robot Neck & Vision System

    Created by Mewgen --- Project Page

    Description:

    User Mewgen has connected his PhantomX Robot Turret to an Asus Xtion to make a 2 Degree of Freedom 3D Camera.

    Mewgen has written a custom C++ / QT application that allows a user to control the robot and monitor its camera. This PC application sends data over a serial port to the ArbotiX Robocontroller on the Turret. The ArbotiX then sets the servo's position based on the command from the PC. The ArbotiX is able to do this running the stock ROS Arduino firmware, turning int into a pass-through device.

    This is a great example of how a simple 2-servo robot can be very useful, giving a 3d camera the freedom to scan whole rooms or objects. This kind of robot could also be adapated to a cralwer/rover, increaing the range that the robot can see while standing still.

    This is also a great example of using InterbotiX robots attached to an external device. Any InterbotiX robot can be controlled on the servo-level, using the ArbotiX Robocontroller as a pass through device. Alternativeley, all of the InterbotiX Robots will respond to ArbotiX Commander style packets, giving the user access to various functions and IK engines that we have built for the InterbotiX robots.

  • Robot Turret Matlab Controller

    Created by Mewgen --- Project Page

    Description:

    User Mewgen created a Matlab controller for the PhantomX Robot Turret.

    Mewgen has written a custom firmware for the ArbotiX to allow for communication with his custom PC controller. The PC controller is written in matlab.

    This is another great example of how easy the ArbotiX robocontroller makes it to control DYNAMIXEL servos from a computer. Whether you want to make a custom firmware for the ArbotiX, or use one of our stock Arduino based firmware examples, the InterbotiX line of robots makes working with external devices and applications a breeze.
