ArbotiX Introduction


The ArbotiX-M Robocontoller, designed by Vanadium Labs is at the heart of every Interbotix robotic kit. This Arduino compatible board is an advanced microcontroller solution for driving BIOLOID and DYNAMIXEL based robots. The ArbotiX-M is loaded with features; ROS ready, open and easy to use protocols, options for tethered, wireless or onboard autonomous control, all driven by an ATMega644p Microprocessor.

The ArbotiX-M Robocontroller is an updated version of the original ArbotiX Robocontroller. The ArbotiX-M shared the same processor and many of the same features - this makes setup and use very similar.
