Abstract

Our research explores the effects of parameter variation on the mobility and functionality of a specific robotic arm. Using trigonometry we create an iterative, vector plotting algorithm for determining the arm’s position in 2-space. This algorithm allows us to adjust the arm to any set width, length, number of links, and gaps between links. Through an implementation using MATLAB code, we are able to create live animations of our plotting algorithm which we use to study the effects of parameter variation. We conclude that by varying parameters of this robotic arm, we can reach any point in the two dimensional plane.
