A Legion of Micro Robots With Raspberry Pi as Their Leader #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Raspberry Pi serves as the “God bot” for these cute little robots. They can follow lines. They can explore your home. But don’t worry. They’re for education.
These small robots have a base area of 2 cm2 and a price tag of about £10 (about $14) each, once they are produced in quantities. They feature two onboard stepper motors, an RGB-LED, battery, a line-following sensor, collision-sensors and a bidirectional infrared transmitter for communicating with a master system, the ‘god bot’. The master system is based on a Raspberry Pi with little additional hardware.
