The Great Mojave Rover Project is an autonomous rover built to survive the extreme conditions of the Mojave Desert. The rover will utilize GPS, environmental sensors, remote communication, and cameras for creating a 3D terrain of the explored area, as well as 360º photos. Using a Raspberry Pi Zero and microcontrollers the rover will be controlled remotely over the internet via a web interface powered by a Raspberry Pi 3B+ base station (Mission Control).

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.
