How ARC Works

ARC runs on an x86 Windows-based PC, Laptop, or SBC (single board computer) to leverage the PC’s powerful architecture and hardware. The connectivity between ARC and sensors, servos, and peripherals is through a supported I/O controller, which we call EZBs. Also, the PC provides USB extensibility for additional peripherals, such as joysticks, cameras, audio devices, and more. However, the location of the PC for the robot (remote or embedded) will determine connectivity to the EZB I/O controller and possible USB peripheral limitations.
