EROS Architecture

The EROS architecture is Seed Robotics' combination of hardware+firmware, specifically designed for scalability and high performance.

It's flexibility enables the creation of models with a varying number of actuators and different actuators models, while maintaining one single, and same, command and control model exposed to the user.
This means all our models share the same Command and Control features as well as compatibility with third party frameworks.

If you are coming from the previous architecture (ARES: RH4D units manufactured until Feb 2017) there are minor changes worth noting. Please read EROS vs ARES What's new and What's changed
