We are glad to announce we have now produced a first version of the XL320 shield!

We are working on implementing the Dynamixel protocol in Rust on this repository: https://github.com/pollen-robotics/rustamixel

Feel free to have a look and comment! You will be the first to know when a XL320 motor moves :wink:


Thanks to @Cyril, @Nico and @Pierre for these progress!
