I’m Dilan, a relatively new hire here at Solarbotics, and I am in charge of product development and R&D support. I’ve got tons of experience with many things, and have seen Arduino as a staple in many projects here at Solarbotics. With its ease of use, powerful programming language, and vast online community, it has been the go-to platform whenever a quick solution is needed. But when I needed some wireless communication, I’d choose a system like Xbee/Zigbee or even simple 433MHz modules, where the communication interface was still treated as a dumb serial link between the two systems. With Solarbotics’ use of Synapse, I needed to project to get to know a more advanced wireless system.
Solarbotics has been playing with Synapse SNAP modules, and have featured these modules in various projects in the past, like our our wireless Brutusbot and with a tutorial on how to get started with Synapse. This system has potential, and it was time to bend it to my will!
