The Arexx Mini Robot Arm is an affordable robot for the hobbyist. It is ideally suited to learning the basics of electronics, mechanics and programming. The robot arm is controlled by a powerful ATMEGA64 microcontroller that is programmable via Open Source Tools in C. The user can upload his own programs simply and easily via the supplied USB interface and the Uploader software. The I/O inputs and outputs together with the flexible I2C bus system allow the addition of extra modules enabling the robot to react to its environment.

Pack includes: - Complete Robot Arm construction set (mechanics and electronics), USB interface with lead and CD-ROM containing all required software and manuals.

    What can we do with the Robot Arm?
  • Transfer example and new programs into the Robot Arm
  • Control the Robot Arm via a keyboard
  • Control and program the Robot Arm via the RACS software
  • Extend the Robot Arm with ready-to-use extension modules so that it can hear, feel and see in order to react to its environment
