The robot uses 3 servos for movement. A PIC controller to receive commands through the serial port of a computer (host). Data is entered in a form from any browser and is sent out to the servos, making the arm move. At the same time there's a live camera feed, to show the remote user if the command was successful or not. All software used and developed is open source (Linux, Apache, camserv, perl, PHP). I have published a pdf manual to explain how I did this. You can easily build your own. Have fun!
**NEW: I now added one more servo for base rotation. Check it all on my site.
**NEW: If I online, you can now try to control GRASP2 through the internet. You can check the ONLINE or OFFLINE status of the robot on my site! See you there!
