Robotics is moving fast, and soon enough, applications (“apps”) made specifically for robots will become a multi-billion dollar industry. The new FlowBotics Studio software development platform is the ideal tool to create such “robot apps” and includes everything you need to make your robots smarter, easier to use and more functional. The FlowBotics Developer Zone is for anyone who is interested in creating robotic apps – from the curious but inexperienced enthusiast to the seasoned robotics developer. This website has the resources for anyone to get started quickly with creating their first FlowBotics Studio application.
