This paper presents the control and actuation system of a parallel robot with three degrees of freedom. To control this parallel robotic system, a user interface has been developed through which the user can interact with the robot. Through this interface, the robot's servomotors can be individually controlled by means of sliders. During the control we can see the current positions of the three servomotors on the user interface because these servomotors are equipped with absolute encoders. After trajectory of points have been made for manipulating objects via the gripper, these points were stored, and via five buttons on the user interface the parallel robot can manipulate objects by taking them to five predefined points.
