In this study, LabVIEW and KNR are used to develop an arm equipped exploring robot with different control modes for operating the arm. Each sensor and the robot arm are controlled through wireless transmission. The exploring robot is also equipped with a webcam, ultrasonic distance sensor, lithium battery, and wireless USB adapter for robot vision, distance sensing, power supply and wireless signal transmission, respectively. Robot arm control comprises two modes, namely, keyboard and motion control modes. The keyboard control mode collects keyboard input information through Wi-Fi wireless transmission to KNR for operating the robot arm control and mobile robot. A learning function in also included in the keyboard control mode. The user can customize a number of arm positions, so that the robot arm can repeat movements. Motion control collects information from a leap motion sensor through Wi-Fi wireless transmission to KNR, and the implementation of motion control can simulate the hand movement.
