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.

There is no Driver for a SSC-32 board.
This is Serial communication.

You need a compatible COM part where you will connect it and you also need to power the SSC-32.

It will respond to simple line command from a serial terminal like Putty or others.
