Abstract: This paper focus on designing and controlling an articulated 3-DOF robotic arm using LabVIEW and NI-myRIO. Nowadays Robots have been used in common places of manufacturing and making the tasks ranging complicated and expensive to be automated, since technology formulates LabVIEW is used to make the robot more precise and practical along with a hardware NI-myRIO. The three base, axis and wrist movements are obtained by using stepper motor and 2 DC gear motor. NI-myRIO is used to generate and accquire signals for controlling and processing, it has an inbuilt processor and FPGA and has many reconfigurable analog and digital pins.
Keywords: LabVIEW, NI-myRIO, DOF, Robotic arm, Stepper motor
