Acrob = Arduino Compatible Robot

Author: Richard Balogh  (baloghZavinac.gifelf.stuba.sk)

Acrob is a small mobile robot platform used for education developed at the Slovak University of Technology in Bratislava. It is a fruitful combination of the great Parallax Boe-Bot robot with the new electronic board compatible with the popular Arduino platform. As a result, we have the robot with many accessories available and programmable in C-like language with many libraries and user forums support. The board is an integrated version of the Parallax Board of Education Shield (for Arduino). See also: http://learn.parallax.com/
