1. Introduction

1.1 Purpose of the requirements document

The main goals of this document which describes the robotic arm project are :

  • allow people to discover the technology we will develop
  • provide a working basis for future improvements

1.2 Scope of the product

The long-term goal of this project is to develop a control software manipulator arm for support of persons with disabilities. There are commercial products of arms which are unfortunately too expensive and does not have control system high levels. An example is the robotic arm Jaco.

1.3 Definitions, acronyms and abbreviations


  It is a library for augmented reality applications based on OpenCV



  OpenCv ( Open Computer Vision) is a free graphic  library mainly designed for real-time image processing. See

1.5 Overview of the remainder of the document

2. General description

2.1 Product perspective

2.2 Product functions

2.3 User characteristics

This project is intended to disabled people. The robotic arm will allow them to grab distant objects. The arm can be remote-controlled. Therefore, users can be developers who can create new sequences of instructions given to the robot.

2.4 General constraints

Unlike existing technologies, our robotic arm must have the feature of being able to detect an object with a marker and get it back. It must also be able to interpret a series of instructions that will be given to him.

2.5 Assumptions and dependencies

3.Specific requirements, covering functional, non-functional and interface requirements

  • document external interfaces,
  • describe system functionality and performance
  • specify logical database requirements,
  • design constraints,
  • emergent system properties and quality characteristics.

3.1 Requirement X.Y.Z (in Structured Natural Language)








  • Natural language sentences (with MUST, MAY, SHALL)
  • Graphical Notations : UML Sequence w/o collaboration diagrams, Process maps, Task Analysis (HTA, CTT)
  • Mathematical Notations
  • Tabular notations for several (condition --> action) tuples

Non functional requirements:
