Product Overview

The TWR-MECH is a mechatronics tower system Module. It is an easy to use mechatronics development and demonstration platform. The tower system mechatronic module has a three axis accelerometer, three axis magnetometer and a twelve channel touch sensor. It is programmable in C/C++ using CodeWarrior and an onboard OSBDM flash programming tool. For fast prototyping or for individuals without C/C++ experience, the module is supported by stick OS. The robot (FSLBOT) kit operates with the tower mechatronics module to create an easy to use mechatronics development and demonstration platform. It is designed specifically to be used and programmed with stick OS BASIC. More advanced users can take programming to new levels of functionality with the use of CodeWarrior and tower system.
