Change Release Notes

Someone said they can't keep up with the updates... Well, tough luck! :D

This update contains a graphical view of your script path. It's neat to view your project in a graphical representation. Any script or control which uses a "ControlCommand" to interact with another control is displayed. For example, if you have a speach recognition phrase that uses a ControlCommand, it will be displayed. If you have a speech recognition phrase that moves a servo (does not use a ControlCommand), it will not be displayed. This allows you to only view the interactions between controls.

  • New Control: Script Flow
  • Additional connection debuging for Brookstone Rover in Debug Control
  • ControlCommand has a short-hand alias "CC" (check EZ-Script manual)
  • ADC Graph performance improvement
  • Intro windows (check new version, etc.) always display when loaded. They close when first control is added

Script Flow Example

In this example I used the Wall-e Big (from included Examples in ARC) User-inserted image

Select the Add Control option, Scripting, and Script Flow User-inserted image

The graphical view displays all scripts and control functions that execute each other. For example, the Speech Recognition Control has many phrases, phrases that execute other controls are displayed:) User-inserted image

Upgrade to ARC Pro

Unleash your creativity with the power of easy robot programming using Synthiam ARC Pro


The day I will conquer the world with my robot, I will assign you as leader of technology ;)


After 30+ attempts to download the latest update, I was unsuccessful, until I updated to Google Chrome. Then it worked the first time. Who knew?


I knew... you have a virus.


Thanks again,

The new update looks great, but that scroll on the servo Movement Panel is cruel

By the way... my son wants to know how many DJ Sures are there? He pictures that warehouse in "Jingle All The Way", where there are hundreds of Santas working on email and updates


Haha, the new servo panel is great once you get used to it. Click and move the mouse slowly in the direction of the icon. It took a few uses to grow on me also :)

Everyone at EZ-Robot works incredibly hard. Like all companies, we have the occasional issue - but we always resolve it.:) Sometimes it takes a bit of time because there is literally hundreds of tasks on our plate.

As far as the software is concerned, i'm the only developer. I've created the bootloader and firmware on the EZ-B, the EZ-SDK and ARC. It's funny how many people I meet who think there's a bunch more of us than there actually is. It's quite flattering actually... I think we've acheived a lot in a little over a year.

Wait until you see EZ-Robot Revolution ;)


"Sometimes it takes a bit of time because there is literally hundreds of tasks on our plate."

Speaking of hundreds of things on the list... Is having multiple movement panels when using multiple EZ-B's from one computer one of them?

My latest design, that I have actually started building finally (got my Sabertooth 2x25, some switching voltage regulators, and a battery charger today, a few bits and pieces from EZ-B and jstarnes1 on the way) has a main robot, and a remote controlled drone riding inside that can go places the main robot can't fit. I was looking at making the Drone using software and an Android Phone as the brain and camera, but that project seems to have died. The board I wanted to use to interface it to motors is no longer available, and I wanted to be able to control a couple more servos than just the wheels, and the software doesn't support that. It is open source, but I would need to learn Java, so new plan is to buy another EZ-B, but I will only have the one computer to control it until you add direct support from Android (or iOS if I must go that way...).



Wow you have been so busy! I'm itching to build something but have been busy on a film shooting until March. The film that was going to bring me to Caliary is not happening now, that bums me out. I was hoping to meet up. Next time. Anyhow, keep up the amazing work. When I finally get the time to build a robot, you will have progressed so far that all I have to do is press the button labelled "Live!", and the AI program will start up! eek
