    Overview

    An easy-to-use mechatronics development and demonstration platform for NXP's Robot Kit operating with the TWR-MECh Board.

    This toolset allows for the science of combining mechanics, electronics, and software into an integrated system. Experience what the four degrees of freedom bipedal walking robot can do.

    The TWR-MECH is programmable in C/C using CodeWarrior and an on-board open-source BDM flash programming tool. For fast prototyping or for individuals without C/C experience, the Tower System Mechatronics Board is supported by the Robot Vision Toolkit and RobotSee (a language as simple as BASIC with the power of C).
