Standalone
This Arduino Pump Tutorial shows an example of how to use a float switch, Powertail, and pump to create a sump pump system. When you want to operate larger pumps from an Arduino you need a stronger relay to handle the larger voltage and current. The PowerSwitch Tail is a perfect tool for the job. It incorporates the relay and outlet plugs all into one unit making it easy to turn on and off larger motors, fans, and pumps.

PC Control These demos and projects allow the robot to be controlled via a computer.

ArbotiX Commander Control - These demos and projects control the Robot using the ArbotiX Commander, the handheld Arduino based remote control.

Direct Control - These demos and projects control the Robot directly from sensors connected directly to the Robot's control board.

Pose Control - These demos and projects allow you to create and playback a sequence of poses.

Serial Control - These demos and projects control the robot using a serial packet protocol.

Standalone - These demos and projects are deisgned to let your robot function without a computer or additional microcontroller.

Wireless Control - These demos and projects allow you to control the robot wirelessly - usually by replacing the Serial Connection with XBee modules.

Reference - These articles have technical details regarding the control and operation of the robot.
