MeArm Controlled by Arduino Uno and TTP229-BSF Touchpad

Instead of using 2-axis joysticks, I decided to use a spare TTP229-BSF capacitive touchpad to control a 4-DoF MeArm robotic arm.

After returning the MeArm I borrowed from my former company, I wanted to build one for my own and make use of the spare touchpad. This project uses a dusty Arduino Uno Rev3, an old MB102 power supply module and the TTP229-BSF.

There are already many MeArm wiring tutorials and assembling guides exist, so I won’t go for these details. Just remember to calibrate your MeArm properly.”
