In 2008 two students at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), Bob Breznak and Kevin Harrington, had independently encountered critical problems in their senior projects; a lack of a unified system for robotics development. They set out to develop a better way to allow developers to access the real world from their computers. The project quickly escalated from a small weekend project into something bigger. With fellow students Alex Camilo and Greg Cole they decided to start a company that would help lower the cost of entry into developing robotics and cyber-physical systems (CPS).

Neuron Robotics’s open source, programmable and cross-platform solution, the Bowler Communications System (BCS) does just that by lowering the costs of entry into robotics and CPS development to within the ability range of nearly everyone.
