|Robotic arm enormous applications can be seen in industries as it is one of the most important manipulator for development. In this work, a light weight robotic arm is designed. The main factors for the designing of mechanical prototypes were rigidity of structure, cantilever effect and centre of gravity. To calculate the angles of robotic arm according to given cartesian position in a short possible time FPGA was used using JTAG protocol. The arduino kit controls the driving circuit of robotic arm which drives the servo motors according to the given instruction. The basic aim was to design and practically implement a robotic arm, keeping an eye to reduce the cost by readily available components in the market.
