The description of this product says it comes with Serial port-based version with powerful PC software. What does this mean?? Can we see a demo of it? And serial port. Does it connect to USB or does one have to connect some other way?
The product includes the SSC-32 sequencer software and the SSC-32 servo controller (serial port). If you want to connect it to a USB port, you’ll need an adapter. There are many videos online about the Lynxmotion Brat Biped.
im looking into purchasing a biped brat from robotshop but there’s quite a few to choose from . Can you help me out in picking one out ?
Hope this helps. If you want a complete kit, it’s up to you if you want it to be programmable using the Arduino IDE or use graphical software with a sequencer (FlowBotics). Servo upgrade means a bit more torque available at each joint. Adding an infrared (IR) distance sensor gives it a basic way to check for obstacles.
