Mechatronics is one of the present trends in the era of computing in today’s system automation industry and control. The proposed project is one such attempt of implementing an accelerometer based system to communicate with an industrial robotic arm wirelessly. This p roject comprises of controlling of robotic arm powered with ARM7 based LPC1768 core. The LC1768 core has to be interfaced with DC motors of robotic arm to control the movements of robotic arm. MEMS is a three dimensional accelerometer sensor used for th is purpose, this accelerometer sensor captures gestures of human - arm and produces three analog output voltages in three dimensional axes. And two flex sensors are used to control the gripper movement. For various movements of accelerometer and flex sensors corresponding characters will be sent to the ARM7 core wirelessly using 2.4GHz RF module. And depending on the received character robotic arm can be controlled in Dynamic or Static mode by communicating with EEPROM using I2C protocol .
