Brief introduction of main controller RCU

Like human, robot is created with a blank "brain" as new-born baby, but it needs program as a guide to oberserve the external world and fulfil reaction by certain functions.
Then, what is robot's BRAIN?
The RCU!

Robot Express (program software)

1) Easy to learn and use.
2) Flexible programming, in way of either flow chart icon programming or C-language code programming. The flow chart icons and codes can be displayed at the same screen for comparison, a handy way for codes learning and testing.
3) Customized setting, all such items as desktop pattern, line, background color and reminder message are decided by user.
4) Integrated online help, enable user to program comfortably without any need to refer to manual.
5) Allow users to create icons or modules by their own, meeting higher demands of DIY users and robot hackers.
