Application for collecting data from sensors and transmitting them through the network



A mobile phone is equipped with sensors which provide information about the user actions and their reading can be easily done using modern software libraries. The movement of a user’s arm, for example, can be used to control the actions of a robotic arm by reading accelerometer sensor data. This control is useful when operations need to be executed in a dangerous environment for humans. This paper presents the implementation of a hardware and software control system for a robotic arm control using the Android accelerometer sensor information the WebSocket protocol for internet communication.
