Ari Alvarez has created a new Arduino open source robot development board which he has designed to be used by managers, developers and hobbyists or to provide an educational platform to teach robotics and electronics.
Watch the video after the jump to learn more about the robot development board project that includes a prototyping area and rechargeable battery power management circuit and see it in action.
“SimplyTronics commits to improving technology education conditions in schools by developing technology while keeping costs down. For this reason we decided to design and manufacture our own ST EDU (SimplyTronics Educational) board. This board will be compatible with existing Arduino and robotics kit tutorials. We will be able to release the board by itself or with the parts forming a complete robot kit.
We have several years of experience designing and manufacturing Arduino-compatible hardware and sensors. Below you can see an early prototype (green board on the left) for the BOE Shield (right) we designed in collaboration with Parallax, under the request of RobotC developers. The BOE Shield has been in the market for a couple of years and is a very successful product.”
