This research focuses on the following major problems: (1) how to autonomously control the Scorbase robotic arm ER-9, (2) understand how program on required software, (3) how to execute programs, and (4) how to control the robot physically and demonstrate that knowledge to other students/professors. To solve these problems, I read the given information on the Scorbase robotic arm ER-9, became familiar with the controls and control box of the robot, and researched different ways to control the robot and its limitations.
