why not take it to the next step ? The proposed project is a typical robotic arm of three degrees of nature which operates with the help of natural language processing and image processing i. not just replacing them . which would translate Natural Language(NL) to Robot Understandable language(RUL) . The arm can controlled by the use of voice commands in English and also usage of image processing to detect various objects enhances the commanding ability of the user. PROJECT OVERALL DESIGN: Our Project is to build a robotic arm having 3 degrees of freedom. which requires a human operation .In these conditions . which would either be run using Python. It will be operated using a Raspberry pi micro-controller. And the manual override option will help us in places of extreme distress . This project could find applications in the fields of surgery. nuclear waste handling and similar fields involving handling of hazardous waste or delicate materials. and unity to test the Physics described using Matlab.So. For example . . they have always made our lives easier . PROJECT DETAILS INTRODUCTION: In our day to day lives. and fed instructions as to how to execute them. this robotic arm could be substituted and controlled by the workers at a distance by replicating the movement of their arm instead of giving in commands which could go wrong. We would use Weka for the implementation of a machine learning algorithm to convert NL to RUL. The motivation behind the project is that this is a highly variable one dissimilar to usual robotic arms. The project is based on a simulation of the same.e computer vision. which was completed by a group of pass-outs this year (Ruban & Seshadhri). we have used robots or other machines for various tasks. or translated into Python code. it can substitute humans in many fields and also what differentiates it from other similar robots is that It could be used as a helping tool for humans . A chemical lab in which an experiment needs high temperatures or produces toxic gases . We would describe the Physics and Dynamics of the System using Matlab. Due to its various features . MOTIVATION: Customized robotic arms are used across the industry variably. The implementation of Natural Language Processing will enable us to control it freely instead of inputting commands which will be useful for on the run type of situations. instead of humans working with safety equipment .

this includes the dynamics. The second module is intended to provide the robot with the ability of sight and therefore map the relative positions of the objects around it. The last module is to interface everything together and wrap up loose ends. and therefore navigate it. the API and a manual override. 3. . 2.The entire project is divided into three modules - 1. The arm itself along with the capabilities of managing and carrying out the operation.
