Sainsmart 6-dof robot arm (2018/05/16)

Sainsmart is selling a 6-dof robot arm. One can control the robot arm using an Arduino controller and a DFRobot I/O expansion shield. I mounted a Sunfounder Rollpaw gripper on the robot (note that the servo shaft is not compatible with the Sainsmart servos and I had to replace the wrist servo of the Sainsmart robot). I developed some software to perform smooth and synchronized motion with the robot drives. The robot can be controlled using a serial terminal. Alternatively one can use a GUI and optionally an XBox controller. The software is demonstrated in the following video.
