ARC Pro will give you immediate updates and new features needed to unleash your robot's potential!


Awesome update. Thanks DJ



I really liked the progress that you made on the object recognition. I tried it with about 10 line drawings and it worked better than ever! :)

PS. any progress on the Meccanoid interface?


Thanks thomas. I don't know what the "meccanoid interface" is. Can you be more specific?


A few months back you said "Nice - when you find information about the (Spinmaster Meccanoid robot) servos, i'll add a plugin in our software to support them so we can give this platform the ez-robot overhaul."

I was just wondering if those servo motors are "on your radar" for development. My guess is that they might need some added electronics to allow EZ robot control. You had suggested swapping out the proprietary servos for standard servos.



DJ stated this in that thread:

"After reading and researching more about it - i don't think it's a worth while venture for ez-robot to support their servos at this time."
