04 T&P Using Digital Inputs


Robotic arms need to be able to communicate with an operator so that you can tell it when to begin or end an operation. We can do this very easily with an input connected to the arm. This input can be something as simple as digital on/off switch.

In this activity, you will perform a pick and place with a robot arm using the air pump kit and a vacuum gripper or mechanical gripper. You will make the robot wait for an input on a switch before it starts, and eventually you will make the robot repeat this five times. Here is what
you want your robot to do:

● Wait for the operator to hit the start switch
● Go home
● Pick up the object
● Place the object in another spot
● Return home
● Operator moves the part back to the start
● Repeat
