Brain Stem Upgraded

Photo: the Lab's first development image of a multi processor robotic brain stem made from Parallax components (the prototype is seen resting on the green cutting board). This is a hybrid brain stem processor programmed in two languages. The module is currently a hand held unit. When connected to the Giant Brain, it will pass motion mobility commands to the robot and ensure compatibility with additional components.

The Hybrid Brain Processor HBP runs on batteries or AC power supply. It has hybridic phase from half duplex to full duplex. The first model communicates high speed serial. Work is continuing on this project. The Lab's first Robotic Brain Stem is created from Parallax processors and designed to communicate motion mobility commands to a Giant Brain. The HBP Hybrid Brain Processor is programmed in two languages.
