The KRC can be programmed in one of two ways. Supplied with the KRC is a Flow-Chart based GUI programming environment. This is excellent for beginners as it teaches the fundamentals of developing flowcharts - this highlights the decision making processes and sequential operation of any program. For advanced users the KRC can be programmed in Assembly Language or C. More info on programming the KRC can be found in the Programming Info section.
