The first product offered was the MD-2 motor
control system which was a subsystem of
a robot arm that was being developed. In
the mid-90's, Roger decided that there was
a small market for mobile robots and the
first Trilobot was designed. These were
mainly sold to Universities for research
projects. In the late 90's Roger developed
ARobot which is a lower-cost robot intended
for hobbyists and educators. Arrick Robotics
remains a small company based in Texas where
all products are designed and built.
