Upgrade to ARC Pro

With Synthiam ARC Pro, you're not just programming a robot; you're shaping the future of automation, one innovative idea at a time.


@DJ, I really like the new features and looks to this new software version release. Thank you for adding UART and sr04’s, digital and servo support for Arduino mega and all the other new features.

I can’t imagine how must time and smarts you have spent, you keep adding and improving you great software since I’ll been a member.  My words cannot do you justice!

My sabertooth 2x25 now works using simplified serial mode on a digital port using the sabertooth Movement Panel on my Arduino Mega and everything else.

The only thing that is not working with the sabertooth Movement Panel is when you select your board index, port number and the the hardware you’re using. It will alway default to board index 0 even after clicking  save button. It doesn’t seem to matter which hardware you select either. I’m hoping this could be an easy fix?

Again, thank you for all the hard work and awesome software for all the World to use.



I’ll update that for you:)  . Thanks a bunch for the kind words. They mean a lot!
