An open-source robotic arm for educational purposes
The dynamic spread of 3D printing technologies and open-source electronics proto-typing platforms have enriched the possibilities of makers communities and the diversity of the approaches used within educational settings at different levels. Consequently, the complexity of thefinal projects has increased considerably. From one side, such a phenomenon may be regarded as extremely positive, given the continuous improvement and complexity of the actual general techno-logical level. However, from the other side, the educational community may risk shifting the students ’attention towards a higher level of abstraction, namely coding, while dealing with hi-tech solutions. Therefore, in the article, the realization of an open-source-based robotic arm for educational purposes is provided. In particular, the complete 3D printing of the constructional parts and the development of the Arduino platform based on controlling software and hardware is given. The work aims at de-scribing the experience of the robotic arm realization with an educational emphasis on the hardware and software, providing an example of an adapted underlying arguments exposition.
