Senior Design 1984-85

An 8088 (or better) microprocessor to control the movements, an 8087 coprocessor to do the calculations for the movements, shared memory so the "brain" and "body" can communicate, and all the required peripheral chips to pull it all together are in the Armdroid's next step of progress. In the future it might also be given some form of sensors. It could then "see" what it is doing while learning new routines. The possibilities for Armdroid's life would then become endless.
