Hey, Im a long time programmer looking to start in robotics, and i've several questions aboutnthe ez robot kit. Complete hardware noob here, so be patient :)
First: Can I replace ez robot's microcontroller with an embedded board and switch between that amd microcontroller for testing? If so how, and where could I buy the embedded programming board? I know the embedded board wont support most of ez robots features, but will I be able to use all the things in the kit? Like servos, etc. I've also read that EZB has Arduino support and apparently arduino works with embedded programming. Is there any arduino setup tutorial?
Second: The info in the about page is a bit messy, so i'd like to clarify what the complete kit exactly includes without buying extra addons, does it include all the necessary for speech recognition and object avoidance?
Third: As a programmer, I'm always curious, can I make the interactions with the bluetooth microcontroller myself instead of using ezsdk or ARC? Again, just for tests.
