RoboPilot allows you to use the serial port on your Palm Pilot
(Palm Pro or later model) to control a robot that uses the Lynxmotion Inc, Serial Servo Controller (SSC). The RoboPilot software was designed for controlling the Lynxmotion Mobile 5 Axis arm ( M5AA-KT ), but can be used for any robot that uses the SSC.
To order contact Taygeta Scientific or use our order form to place your order.
For $29.95 you can start controlling your robot!
