Robotic Bartender - What Can a $99 Arduino-Compatible Controller and 6 BLDC Servo Motors Do?

Rochester, NY: Teknic’s Robotic Bartender uses 1 of Teknic’s new ClearCore controllers (Arduino compatible) and 6 ClearPath integrated servo motors. We challenged a small team of engineers to demonstrate the flexibility and power of the new controller. They came up with a robotic bartender that lets you order one of 130,000 possible drink combinations for the perfect cocktail.

See the robotic bartender demo that “is a mix of fun and serious engineering”.

What are the capabilities of one ClearCore?

  • Control up to 4 steppers, or digital servos such as ClearPath.
  • 13 software-configurable analog and digital I/O points.
  • Compatible with 24-volt industrial actuators and sensors.
  • Rich, well-documented selection of example code projects for Atmel Studio 7.
  • Optional Arduino Wrapper Library to code using the lightweight Arduino IDE. Perfect for rapid prototyping and small projects.
  • 90 day money-back guarantee; 3-year warranty.

What are users saying on Google Reviews?

  • “Both ClearLink and ClearCore have truly been designed with industrial applications in mind and offer a ton of capability at a fraction of the cost and size of a PLC based system.” – Ivan Chousal
  • The ease of use and all-in-one package of the ClearPath motors is incredible. The only thing more impressive than the motor is the customer service.” – Cecil Baird
  • “We have been incredibly impressed with every facet of Teknic, Inc. As an OEM that will have systems in the field worldwide for multiple decades their promise of continuing to make available legacy products to support our customers also impressed me.” – John Cantrell
