At Roslyn Robot Company were are finally back to work on our new Robotics Interface Board. We stopped work on it during July and August to enjoy the summer, then September seemed to quickly slip by before we could get back to work on it. Now in October we are beginning to pickup where we left off in June.

We made a lot of progress on the board in June. We finished the USB interface and that is working perfectly. We got a shell of the firmware finished as well as a crude User Interface written in Microsoft .Net. We were able to simultaneously control two servo motors from the the PC

Roslyn Robot Company also became a dealer for a line of servo motors that we will make available on our site soon.

More to come about this shortly.
