Arduino’s are easy, but they have very limited IO and don’t support much hardware off the bat. Great for beginners, but when your ready for the big boy league, the Axon is the way to go. A ton of IO, Uarts and ADC, all in a very small easy to use package. Does your project have a bunch of servos? Building a hexapod? You need the Axon. No shields required.
And there’s an equally awesome library to match. It’s called WebbotLib, and man is it powerful. Support for a ton of hardware, an easy to use Gait Designer for all your hexapod dance moves, and an even easier Project Designer to get you started. Have a look for yourself, I created a video tutorial on how it all works.
The combination of the Axon and Webbotlib allow the possibility for some really cool robots. My SAGAR robot runs using both, as well as some other cool projects. Ready to start your next big project?
