MR-999-E is a robotic arm that has five separate movements to grab or release, lift or lower, rotate wrist and pivot sideways controlled by five servo motors. For the time being it has been used as a trainer in the university lab. A physical wire from the controller to the interface of the robotic arm contributes its major movements. This paper is to describe a new approach from wired to wireless technology added with Graphical user Interface (GUI) application to make it more user-friendly. The transmitter will be connected to the computer whereas the receiver will be connected to the robotic arm interface. In the GUI, the robotic arm is modeled using SolidWork 2005 software and implemented into Visual Basic environment. As a result, real-time and simultaneous movements from simulation to actual environment will be performed. All the movements have been calibrated to ensure that the transmission of data is correct. MR-999-E wireless robotic arm is one of the products that employ wireless technology to support applications such as remote monitoring and surgery.
