This paper extends writer's previous work and proposes design, modeling and control issues of a simple robot arm design. Mathematical, Simulink models and MATLAB program are developed to return maximum numerical visual and graphical data to select, design, control and analyze arm system. Testing the proposed models and program for different input values, when different control strategies are applied, show the accuracy and applicability of derived models. The proposed are intended for education and research purposes.
