RobotShop announces the release of an all new LSS-based articulated robotic arm. Lynxmotion's original purpose-built educational and hobby robots had evolved into using a modular robotic building system known as the Servo Erector Set (S.E.S.). “As more and more schools integrate robotics into their curriculum, it is important that teachers and students have access to the latest robots which can simulate articulated arms used in industry.” indicated Coleman Benson, R&D Project Manager at RobotShop. “A culmination of over 20 years of experience in the field, this high quality arm is easy to use, versatile and affordable.”. Lynxmotion’s smart servos incorporate the best technology in their class and allow this new arm to be fully configurable. The custom human readable communication protocol is open to all, allowing users to easily integrate control of and obtain feedback from the arm’s servos via their preferred programming language.

RobotShop announces today the release of their all new smart servo motors. "These smart servo motors were designed to form the foundation of the next generation SES modular robotic construction system and allow for an evolution of the many robotic kits in the portfolio." Indicated Coleman Benson, R&D Project Manager at RobotShop. "The Lynxmotion Smart Servos (LSS) incorporate the top of the line technology in their category and we plan to build on this platform and extend to other segments of the robotics market." RobotShop's intention was to not only create a smart servo, but to make smart servo technology accessible and easy to use by all robot builders. Features include 360 degree absolute positioning, multi-turn virtual positioning, RC and serial control, a variety of sensors, many mechanical connection points and more. Unlike existing smart servos, the custom communication protocol is "human readable", making it easy to use and understand. Read more about it in the press release and the blog post.

RobotShop Continues its Expansion in the UAV Market by Acquiring FlyingEinstein's Technology

RobotShop announced today the acquisition of the technology behind Flying Einstein LLC, a manufacturer based in Florida that designs and produces flight controllers for UAVs and drones. “Since our arrival in the drone market ten months ago, our UAV team led by Eric Nantel (a.k.a. DiaLFonZo) quickly observed the need for an easy to use, plug-and-play flight controller supporting all MultiWii features.” indicated Mario Tremblay, CEO of RobotShop. “After analysing our community's needs, we saw everything we wanted was already included in the Quadrino from FlyingEinstein and a new partnership will give more support to the MultiWii community and bring our UAV platforms to the next level."
