Arduino Pro Mini Controlling Robot Arm via Qt GUI

This project brings to fruition 3 components that I have been working on:-

1. Qt Serial interface with an Arduino that can transfer data upto 115200 kbps with rudimentary error checking. Source code (arduinotalker.cpp and arduinotalker.h) available here.

2. Custom PCB using a Arduino Pro Mini as a 6 servo controller. Circuit Diagram available (pro_mini_6_Servo_controller.fzz) here.

3. 6 DOF Robot Arm powered with a 6V 5A DC external power regulator.
