Design and Development of a Precision Robotic Thrower and a Smart Target

The objective of the research was to compare the current technologies of robotic arms and create a design based off of the findings. Control theory is taught through hands-on experience by designing a physical robotic arm. A PID (proportional-integral-derivative) controller will be used to control the movement of the arm. MATLAB will be used to maximize bandwidth and robustness for the controller. Finally, the theoretical parameters will be tested with the created robotic arm. Future applications of this work include implementation into a robotic circus.
