Every microcontroller that exists can be instructed to produce an RS-232 data stream. However, a microcontroller may not be robust enough to handle a TCP/IP stack. If your robotic device can speak RS-232, the NEMO10 can be used to translate the resultant RS-232 data stream into a TCP/IP packet.
How to Keep Things From Going Wrong With Your Arduino-based Bot. Not sure where to start when you need to diagnose a problem? This guide will help!
Each year, the American Society of Agricultural & Biological Engineers hosts a student contest which has a dif ferent agricultural theme. This year, participants had to navigate a scale model of a feedlot.
Take a look at the testing and setup of this flying robotics platform, including integration with an R/C transmitter and receiver, the selection and care of Li-Po batteries, plus the never-ending task of maintenance.
A wedge robot is a simple and durable design, and is the perfect platform for your first bot. Follow these construction details to build one for yourself.

Collaborating With Hubo
The HUBO robot platform is a four foot, three inch tall, fully actuated humanoid robot with similar joint movement to that of humans. HUBO’s legs, arms, hands, fingers, and thumbs work about the same as human’s do, as well. Page 10

The Many Ways to Control a Robot
As designers and builders of our robotic creations, we still want some sort of control over our machines, even if the basic control is through autonomous sensor interaction with the outside world. Page 74
