The brachI/Oplexus software is a digital nerve center for connecting human interfaces to robotic arms. The latest release of this software includes support for controlling our open source robotic platform - The Bento Arm – with an Xbox 360 controller, Myo Armband, or keyboard. Future releases will include additional human interfaces and robotic arms.
NOTE: brachI/Oplexus is pronounced 'brack-I-O-plexus' and is inspired by the anatomical term 'brachial plexus' which is the main network of nerves that connects the brain and spinal cord to your arm.
Instructions for installing, running, and modifying the software can be found in brachIOplexus_User_Guide.pdf The user guide will be your main goto document while setting up the software for the first time and includes references to the other files in the repository:
- brachIOplexus_installer_V1c.zip: A standalone installer file that can be used to install the software without having to dig into the source code or install visual studio. Also available from the releases tab
- MTT GUI.sln: The main visual studio project file for opening the source code. The project was built in Visual Studio Express 2015.
