Anyone Using the RP6 from Arexx?
« on: March 08, 2013, 04:45:05 AM »
I picked up a couple of these from Conrad electronics to develop a behavioural AI programming system. I must say, I love them. Searching the forum gives very few hits. I'm just wondering how many other people here are using the platform.

Is no one really using this piece of kit?  ???

OK, it looks a little expensive at first glance, but the facilities are very good for the price.

I've used a kit that seems similar: The Zumo from Pololu. It's also a small, tread-driven robot, with built-in motor controllers. You have to provide your own Arduino and sensors for the Zumo, though.
Your mention was the first I heard of the Dutch kit, so I'm not surprised if many forum readers also don't know about it, much less use it.

Yes, I've seen the Zumo. It was one of the platforms I looked at while while deciding which to develop for. The advantage with the RP6 is that everything is built and tested when it arrives. What's especially useful for me is that it accepts RC5 codes from a universal remote, will transmit them to another unit, and has terminal I/O.
