With the continuous improvement of control technology, the application of manipulator is more and more widely. A manipulator based on Arduino is designed and developed. Arduino is used as the main control of the system. The hardware system is built by combining the actuator drive module, key module and metal manipulator kit, and the software programming is completed by using a special ide. The metal manipulator with four degrees of freedom can be quickly controlled by pressing the key to realize object grasping.
