Visual, real-time, agent based programming for Arduino. Now available for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

A visual, real time programming envrionment for the Arduino!

A New Development Strategy

Write low level Arduino code to interact with hardware, then structure your program and logic in a powerful yet easy to use, highly parallel “agent based” architecture.

Real Time Connection

Work with a live connection to your Arduino, see how your program works as you build it!

Compiles To Arduino

When your program is done, it can be compiled to run entirely on your Arduino! The profiler tool gives you accurate resource usage information while you work.

Beginner

Blink 2 LEDs - In Embrio, when you have 1 LED blinking, it's simple to make another LED blink. This tutorial introduces the concept of Functions in Embrio which let you encapsulate a group of nodes into a reusable node.

Intermediate

Color Fading RGB LEDs - This project shows how to randomly fade the colors of RGB LEDs, as well as control their speed and brightness with potentiometers. The project also demonstrates how to encapsulate groups of nodes as Functions which can be reused multiple times.

Advanced

Autonomous Car - In this 3 part project we’ll see how to program an autonomous robot car using Embrio. The car has 3 behaviors. It wanders around, avoiding obstacles by turning away from near by walls and stopping before hitting a wall. Every so often it stops and...
