Paper Abstract

This paper is mainly about a new robot control system, which has open structures, and whose architecture is based on CAN bus for a joint modular robot. The hardware system of the joint control module is designed for signal sampling and processing, data storage and communication. ATmega64 SCM is selected as the core processor. A CAN card is used for communication. FM256 RAM is used for data storage and condensation. The monitoring software and lower level control processing software are developed with ZLGVCI interface functions of CAN bus, and in the ICC AVR IDE and AVR Studio online debug tool with C language. Some experiments are carried out to validate the basic functions of the control system.
