robotic arm in the sense anythidng which can folD its self , for example the cassette tray of any hanDycam ?? or a movable robot-car which can stanD up ?? is there any simulator for this ???dddd

I think you just took the prize for this month's vague question.

A single plane fold requires a simple hinge, The handicam tray would typically use parallelogram linkages or scissors, their lengths (equal or not) and geometries (pivot points, parallel or not) would determine exactly how the tray moved.

Don't know what kind of simulations may or may not exist, but most (all?) setups can be seperated into their axis of operation and plotted on a cartesian plane, and AFAIK there's no math that can't be done with a basic scientific calculator. I do my more complex simulations with cardboard and pins wink.gif Works like a charm.

I know Microsoft have a robotics simulation package out on the market.

A lot of mechanical CAD programs also have motion simulator functions.

arduino and actuators, complexity can be as simple as a hinged joint or as complex ass modelling the human arm

hi, what i want to say the robot arm is probably the most mathematically complex robot you could ever build. As such, this tutorial can't tell you everything you need to know. Instead, I will cut to the chase and talk about the bare minimum you need to know to build an effective robot arm. Enjoy!

To get you started, here is a video of a robot arm assignment I had when I took Robotic Manipulation back in college. My group programmed it to type the current time into the keyboard . . . (lesson learned, don't crash robot arms into your keyboard at full speed while testing in front of your professor)
And to build a cardboard robotic arm is a popular science project in schools around the world. It is a simple, first step in robotics education. Students are given assorted supplies and asked to construct their cardboard robotic arm using only their creativity and ingenuity. Students are expected to finish the project in widely differing ways.
