It can even perform as a university research platform. Why MRP? MRP make you focus on your application which you no need to reinvent the robot hardware or redoing some basic programming again.

Upgrade AR40B with UIC00A

AR40B is Robot controller board which is quite famous among robot builder, especially in ROBOCON. Anyhow, the onboard USB programmer is a bit out of date. So you maybe asking: “Can I upgrade it using the new UIC00A?”. The answer is “YES!” Since UIC00A is a very low cost (~RM50.00) USB programmer, we should utilize it. Now the question is how to integrate it onto AR40B board? No worry, that’s the reason this blog is created, upgrading AR40B to be UIC00A programmable.

What can you do with 4 RC servos?

Yes, it’s really hard to think of a robot with only 4 RC servos without any other actuator. The most common robot is wheel robot with only 2 360 degree rotate RC servos. But, actually you can notice that there is other examples of robot that build from 4 RC servos. One of them is Biped Walker. Thus, today i try to build this robot to test the performance. Another reason is recently we have come out with new product called IFC-RS08 which stand for RC Servo Card (8 Channel RC Servo Controller) and would like to build a application from this product. The construction are pretty easy if compare with other 6 RC Servo Biped. I use roughly 3-4 hours to successfully build and program this robot.
