Original post

I am working on a DIY Pick and Place Robot with my friend Balaji. I am taking care of the software side of things while the hardware is taken care by Balaji.


A pick and place robotic system automates the process of picking up parts and placing them in a desired location. These robots plays a major role in industrial automation. The system consists of links, joints & gripper equivalent to a human hand. Each joint in the robot and the gripper contains a separate motor for automating the pick and place operation.


  • Basic knowledge in
  • No knowledge of electronics is needed. This course is self-sufficient with the electronics knowledge you will need to build the pick and place robot.
  • This course is also self-sufficient with the Swift and App Inventor knowledge you will need to develop the iOS and Android App
