My Attempt At Making A Home made Raspberry Pi Robot 777x437

Awesome post from Average Man vs. Raspberry Pi!

You will have seen recently that I’ve been playing with a few Raspberry Pi robot kits, the kind that are usually pre-built and just require a bit of code to get you started, most coming with helpful guides and/or downloadable Python files.

But what about going solo and making your own robot almost from scratch?

I tried to accomplish this very task – building a home-made Raspberry Pi robot as a bit of fun, but also as another method of learning how to use motors with the Pi and Python.

The idea to do this came after attending Pi Wars in Cambridge, which made me consider entering my own robot in the next competition – causing me to rush home to buy tracks, motors, chassis plates and all sorts of other parts I couldn’t really afford to waste my money on!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
