Similar projects worth following
This robotarm is a sequal on the already finnished robotarm Smartrobo V1.x, this time all electronics inside robotarm. The robotarm is based around a brand new motherboard 'Shieldbuddy TC275'. His hardware architecture is sublime, real multitasking 3 cores working at 200Mhz, arduino mega based layout. Kinimatic movements on the gripper head will be realtime controlled with a two axis accelerometer.

This project revolves around the use of a very fast 3 core processor, the TC275.

Firstly, each core can communicate seamlessly with the others so, for example, core 0 could be controlling motors whilst core 1 sends and receives data to other modules such as the serial connections like displays. The advantage is that core 0 can run at full speed and toggle digital output pins at very high speed.(10 nano seconds).

We going to use the cores for 3 different tasks

Core0: Serial communication / griper / neo-pixel tasks
Core1: Servo motors serial communication tasks
Core2: TCP communication with pc or teach pendant tasks
