An application to robotic wrist based on simplified Stewart platform by NI single-board RIO control system was investigated in this study. The positions of moving platform are changed by extension or shortening of three linear actuators. In order to obtain good control, the proportional-integral (PI) controller was employed in single axis control. Through experiments, the response time of robotic wrist to achieve the target position could be less than 0.3 s.
