COZMO is a great small robot that can be fully programmed using Python. The robot is manufactured by ANKI.
When you start to discover COZMO, you will learn that this little guy is really smart that evolves the more you play with him.
But, as explained on Cozmo’s website,
“Cozmo’s unprecedented combination of advanced robotics hardware and software are part of what makes him an innovative consumer experience. But it’s also what makes him, in conjunction with the Cozmo SDK, a groundbreaking education platform that’s expressive, motivating, and engaging”
And that’s is what we will develop here in this tutorial. Using the Cozmo’s SDK integrated with Raspberry Pi, we will open a fantastic window, integrating Robotics and Physical Computing!
The below video will give you a taste of what we will explore here:
Each Friday is PiDay here at Adafruit! Be sure to check out our posts, tutorials and new Raspberry Pi related products. Adafruit has the largest and best selection of Raspberry Pi accessories and all the code & tutorials to get you up and running in no time!
Adafruit has had paid day off for voting for our team for years, if you need help getting that going for your organization, let us know – we can share how and why we did this as well as the good results. Here are some resources for voting by mail, voting in person, and some NY resources for our NY based teams as well. If there are additional resources to add, please let us know – adafruit.com/vote
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, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, 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.
