Abstract

This research focuses on the development of the control system of a dual arm industrial robot. A controller for the position control of unconstrained robot arm is also presented. System architecture, hardware configuration and software development are discussed in detail; The experimental set-up consists Remotec's RM-10A dual arm manipulator. Each arm has six separate motorized motions with position sensors. The manipulator is controlled by a Texas Istruments' TMS320C40 parallel Digital Signal Processors installed on the QPC/C40B Board. The PID control software which is embedded on the Digital Signal Processor is developed using C language. A Graphical User Interface is also developed using Microsoft Visual C{dollar}\sp{++}{dollar} to facilitate easy operation of the robot.
