A tiny car built with a Feather, CircuitPython and more. Thanks for sharing!
I’ve been working on a small
wheeled/tracked (if you call rubber bands tracks) robot project for a few
weeks now that is designed around the footprint of your Feather boards. I
haven’t merged my latest work to the main branch yet but in the RP2040
branch there is now a design for a Stemma QT sensor board carrier on the
front of the robot. Having the Stemma QT connector on the Feather RP2040
makes it super easy to change sensors; essentially the core of the robot
(processing, motor controller, power) is hard wired and the rest is modular.
This repository has the 3D models, wiring details, and code for the SMARS mini XL. Currently the code is designed for Circuit Python 6.2.0 running on an Adafruit Feather RP2040. It uses a VL53L0X time-of-flight sensor connected with i2c, an DRV8833 h-bridge motor driver, a small lipo, and a SPST switch. See the Fritzing diagram for wiring
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.
