Bowler System: Open source, Closed-loop, low cost CNC controllers with a command and control framework.
This is a Java application (and framework API) for interacting with bowler devices. It makes it easy to interact with the devices and quickly develop hardware.
This was a fun halloween project from 2011 where i added a layer to the DyIO where you can load a song and synchronize motions to that music. I made a skeleton sing and dance.
This is a Dynamic I/O controller. It used the bowler protocol to abstract microcontroller functions across a communication link. All features can be requested from a host application and used through the same interface.
This is the first robot to use the Bowler CNC controller. It is a closed loop control system running each axis. We have increased the possible precision per axis while cutting the cost down to 1/4 of an equivalent stepper.
