  • Robot control via computer programs which runs on any control device is possible just by developing software applications.
  • No expert knowledge in robotics control required to operate a robot because complex kinematic calculation and cooperative operation on multiple servo motors are automatically processed by V-Sido CONNECT RC.
  • Not only PCs (ex. Windows、Linux、MacOS)but also Smartphones/Tablets (ex. Android)and single-board computers (ex. Intel Edison, Raspberry Pi) are available as a control device.
  • Web applications developers can easily participate in robot development because script languages such as JavaScript are used to control the robots.
