microcontroller hardware Open source Arduino Bluetooth community mode robots 3DoT Board

As an hardware focused Group, Humans for Robots develops a new expansion dock for the 3DoT Board. The 3DoT Board is the brain, power, and controller of any robot - all on a 35 x 70 mm PCB, It can get your robots up and running.

You can control your robot from a computer anywhere in the world in community mode by utilizing the phone’s cameras and Bluetooth connection to the 3DoT Board. To go further, you can program the board using the popular Arduino IDE using the 3DoT Arduino library to help you get started. The library also allows you to write code to interface with controls on the mobile app. Advanced users can, of course, also use any AVR tool of their choosing.

Plug your motors and servos directly into the board, and a smart, current-limited power circuit allows it to drive everything from the on-board rechargable battery. You don't even need to purchase a separate battery charger, the 3DoT Board automatically charges the on-board battery to a safe level through USB.

The board is OSHWA certified open source hardware and all software is open source with GPL licensing.
