Obstacle Avoiding Robot with #Arduino and #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

From maxfix101 on YouTube:

I built a basic obstacle avoiding robot with Raspberry Pi 2 and Arduino Uno.

Raspberry Pi controls the motors and an ultrasonic sensor. LIDAR (Lidar Lite v2 Blue Label) is hooked up to Arduino.

Raspberry Pi reads LIDAR data via a serial connection and “makes a decision” on where to go next. LIDAR takes a reading every 4 degrees of servo rotation.

The ultrasonic sensor along with LIDAR is used for obstacle avoidance as well as deciding on the direction.

I wrote the code in Python on the Pi and a C++ variant on the Arduino.
