PC Based Small Arm Robot project is represented a small arm robot that controlled by Personal Computer (PC) using Graphical User Interface (GUI). The idea behind this project is able to enhance the student knowledge about industrial robot application. Basically, this project is focused on the designing the system include controlling elements. The project was involving mechanical part, hardware and software. These three elements are the main system of this project. A small arm robot is a mechanical part that represented the system output overall. Besides that, the Graphical User Interface (GUI) is developed by using Visual Basic software acted as the panel control through the personal computer (PC). The hardware element of the project is microcontroller circuit in order to manipulate and control the final system. As the additional information, a small arm robot has five degree of freedom (DOF) based on human’s arm. These all degree of freedoms is functioned as joint which is base, shoulder, elbow, wrist and end-effectors. The small arm robot is totally run by servo motors. For this project, the system is interfaced by using Atmel microcontroller. The Atmel microcontroller can manipulate the movement of small arm robot according to the Graphical User Interface (GUI) data signal. Data signal from personal computer (PC) triggered the function program code in microcontroller as the output signal that controls the servo motor rotational motions. Communication between personal computer (PC) and microcontroller circuit is connected by the serial communication integrated circuit (IC) that combined with microcontroller board.
