COMPUTER-CONTROLLED ROBOT. Conference Paper uri icon

abstract

  • Designing of an interface to control the Pneumatic Seiko Robot, Model 200, using the Apple II Computer is discussed. The Seiko 200 consists of four actuators/pneumatic cylinders, and four relay controlled pneumatic switches to control them. The robot is manipulated by placing the appropriate sequence of data in the computer memory. Safety precautions are taken to insure against danger to the Apple computer. Modifications can be added to control multi-robot operations in more complex industrial applications.
