    Easy way to interface with hardware
    Review by Jessicah
    Using text-based programming has never been "fun" and I end up forgetting minor syntax issues etc. I'm a much more physical / visual learner and a more visual way of programming is really appealing. Love how you can "go deeper" to see how the projects are made and really looking forward to seeing new projects created.

    Very Powerful Tool
    Review by Gi
    The graphical language in FlowBotics works like LabVIEW and is very powerful. It works really well for developing rapid proof of concepts/utilities for serial/usb devices and has a great library for developing polished GUIs for them.

An Introduction to FlowBotics’ Phidgets Apps

Posted on August 07, 2014

By Kat Dornian & filled under Phidgets Tutorials, Software and Apps.

RobotShop and DSP Robotics just launched some new apps to get Phidgets quickly working on your computer. These apps are made with FlowBotics Studio, the new robotics software development platform. The new apps make it really easy to use Phidgets (you don’t even need to install the Phidgets drivers). Just download the Phidget app, and it’ll run, just [...]

New FlowBotics Apps for Phidgets Products

Posted on August 07, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under Software and Apps.

FlowBotics Studio is a powerful graphical programming software which helps you easily create programs which interface with external hardware. One important feature of FlowBotics Studio is that you can also create stand-alone executable (.exe) programs which can be installed and used by others who do not own FlowBotics Studio. RobotShop, along with DSP Robotics, have [...]

Robot Construction Kits

Posted on April 23, 2014

By Coleman Benson & filled under Robotics Projects & Kits, Where to Start.

Robot Construction Kits can be distinguished from normal robot kits since they use modular parts and allow you to assemble different robots using the same parts. A robot kit on the other hand only allows you to build one robot. Robot construction kits are a great investment because they tend to include everything you need [...]

Programming DAQs using FlowBotics Studio & FlowStone

Posted on March 14, 2014

By Carl Owen & filled under Electronics, Software and Apps.

  In this tutorial we are going to cover Data Acquisition boards (or DAQ’s as they are better known) and how to program them using FlowBotics Studio which uses the FlowStone graphical programming language inside. Data acquisition devices form the basis of most robotics systems obtaining signals in and out of a system from external [...]

No, you shouldn't need to update the SSC-32 firmware. Can you try with the bluetooth bee and upload a few pictures of your setup if it still does not work?

When the Found light in FlowBotics Studio turns on, does the green "Link" light on the bee turn on at the same time?

Hi Mike, Based on what you are describing, the AL5D or AL5A arms with FlowBotics Studio might be the best. The assembly of the arms gives a good introduction to mechanical / electrical systems, and FlowBotics Studio includes a project for making movement sequences ...

All the jumpers are in the correctly position. If I connect the ssc-32 board with cable, flowbotics program sees and connects to port com3, but with the bluetooth does not see that port. I don't think it pair via Bluetooth. It is as if to put something else on the board ...

Once you select the bluetooth button in FlowBotics Studio, it will scan all the COM ports trying auto-detect the SSC-32 board. When it does, the green "Found" light wil turn on, like it normally does when using a serial connection. ...

If I understand correctly, you've got FlowBotics Studio successfully connecting to your SSC-32 board using a serial cable and can control the robot, is that correct? To make it use bluetooth instead of serial cable, you need to disconnect the ...

The Bluetooth setup does not require that you upload code; you simply send commands to it externally. That setup is intended for use with FlowBotics Studio and the SQ3 project. Once again, 7b removes the BotBoarduino (Arduino) entirely. We do offer a repair / troubleshooting service here: http://www.robotshop.com/en/lynxmotion-repair-service.html

That's unusual... Did you change anything that was connected to your computer, or have any changes to your network connection?

Can you try unplugging your arm and loading FlowArm PLTW to see if that works?

Currently, FlowBotics Studio is only support on Windows XP (SP2), Windows 7, and Windows 8. It might be possible to FlowBotics in Parallels, but it has not been tested.
