Powerful New Nova Firmware Released By Motion Impossible

Motion Impossible’s ground-breaking AGITO remote control modular dolly is gaining powerful new features as the result of a new free firmware upgrade for all users. Dubbed Nova, the new firmware introduces repeatable movements to the AGITO arsenal, provides a more ergonomic and streamlined User Interface for the AGITO’s remote control, and signals some of the important future directions the Motion Impossible team plan to take with AGITO’s ongoing development.

Developed following extensive consultation with end-users, the firmware has been completely redesigned from the ground up to make AGITO operation more intuitive for users and highlight the maturity of the platform. The introduction of repeatable moves mode adds a powerful new capability into the AGITO toolkit in both free-roaming and track operation, providing five memory banks of three minutes each.

A newly unified UI now includes a dark mode, the ability to quickly switch between Sports, Trax and Repeatable Moves mode, real-time speed feedback to show how fast the system is moving, additional control mapping, enhanced Tower controls, and advanced steering modes, including steering angle hold for the perfect circle without track.

“We are delighted to be releasing the Nova firmware, which highlights the increasing maturity of the AGITO platform and provides some powerful new functionality for our growing number of users,” comments Rob Drewett, Motion Impossible CEO and co-founder. “Nova also provides us a robust platform to build on for the future, and we’re looking forward to add some exciting new features in the coming year.”

Nova is available for free download for users.
