To implement the control platform of the robot arm (Dobot) base on Robot Operating System (ROS) software framework, hardware system and software system are studied for designing the robot control system. In this paper, the hardware layout of the control platform is proposed. The software part mainly completes the protocol communication between the central processor and the robot arm controller, designed client node and server node program so as to realize that the robot arm can be controlled according to the specified trajectory through the LAN remote. The experimental results show that the control system can accurately move the end of robot arm according to the specified trajectory with a certain degree of real-time and stability.
