Main Article Content


This paper is centered on the design and construction of a Bluetooth-controlled robotic arm with 6 degrees of freedom. It is capable of manipulating given objects as well as lifting and conveying a payload from one point to another. Any smartphone that possesses an Android operating system can be used for remote operations. This offers a background look at robotic arms, from invention to current trend as well as simplification of design to make it more accessible to robotics enthusiasts. The design process for the robotic arm is chronicled in this paper, from the working principle to the development of the kinematic equations, as well as CAD modeling and component selection. Tests are also conducted to ascertain the robot’s strength and range of capabilities. The availability of this robotic arm would serve as an indispensable learning tool for experimenting with robotics in training institutions.
