Use an ANDROID smartphone or a tablet to control and monitor the gadgets you’ve built. What’s even better, design the user interface yourself.
ALL THIS WITHOUT WRITING A SINGLE LINE OF CODE!
Drag and Drop Simplicity
Ro-buddy App allows you to directly control the Ro-buddy Microcontroller board’s I/O pins, A/D pins, motor drivers and monitor the status of the board.
The same app also allows you to create your own unique controller interfaces using built in buttons, widgets and other control/sensor elements including a video streaming widget – just drag & drop.
Simply connect your motors, sensors, LEDs and an optional Raspberry Pi for video streaming, wireless capabilities and advanced functionality. Then interactively build your App interface using the Interface designer. Download your interface to the Ro-buddy board and Start Controlling your Masterpiece!
