This is a great economical autonomous Raspberry Pi robot project, Via custombuildrobots
This post is about my self-driving robot car. The robot uses a Raspberry Pi as control unit and sensors to scan the environment. All the programs developed to steer and control the robot are published here on my website. In the actual phase I am trying to get everything working. So far the robot car could be controlled by a web interface with live video streaming…
I tried to use not too expensive electronic components to ensure that everybody could build this tiny robot. Especially for kids and their pocket money it is important not to use the best and typical very expansive electronic components.

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.
