Abstract: In this paper, pick and place robotic arm is designed and implemented. This robotic arm is based on android application controlled for remote operation. In this paper, commands are sent to the receiver to control the movement of the robot either to move forward, backward and left or right etc using android application device. Four motors are interfaced to the microcontroller where two motors are used for arm and gripper movement of the robot while the other two motors are used for the body movement. The android application device transmitter acts as a remote control that has the advantage of adequate range, while the receiver end Bluetooth device is fed to the microcontroller to drive DC motors via motor driver IC for necessary work. Remote operation is achieved by any smart-phone/Tablet etc., with Android OS; upon a GUI based touch screen operation. This system can be enhanced by interfacing it with a wireless camera so that the person controlling it can view operation of the arm and gripper remotely.
