Raspberry Pi Wheeled Security Drone #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi
Via Raspberry Pi Pod
Max Kern has taken a Raspberry Pi Zero W, a camera module and some power circuitry and sensors and created a first-person viewpoint wheeled security drone, the ZeroBot Pro, an upgrade from the previous ZeroBot (without the Pro!). The software UI has been created using Node.js and Socket.io and the motors are controlled using PWM through the pigpio library. The hardware is packed inside a delightful 3D-printed chassis and he has open-sourced the whole design.
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!
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
