GEN2 ROBOTICS releases the Element | GEN2 .NET Robot Controller

Educators worldwide use the Element | GEN2 robot controller for robotics and machine control learning and development. The included set of Open Source .NET libraries allow fast software development, education, research and development in the fields of Robotics, Computer Vision and Artificial Intelligence - image processing, neural networks, genetic algorithms, machine learning and robotics.

The Element | GEN2 is a Wireless robotics development platform solution with integrated analog inputs, digital inputs and outputs, I2c port, servo control as well as motor control with encoder inputs and PID algorithms.


The Element | GEN2 provides a ready-to-use solution to interface the Microsoft™ .NET framework to the most common robotic hardware when using our Open Source .NET library.

Never before has it been this easy to interface DC motors, servos, analog sensors, I2C slave devices, single and quadrature encoders, switches/relays, and other devices to the .NET framework.

The Element | GEN2 requires absolutely no low level programming whatsoever. Instead, developers simply take advantage of the Element | GEN2 .NET library to effortlessly query or control their hardware.
