For this project, I used LabVIEW to create a Raspberry Pi controlled Sumobot. I also made a 2 joystick, 2 trigger controller that is also powered by a Raspberry Pi and can control the Sumobot over WiFi. This bot is going to be used to compete against its BeagleBone Black counterpart to see which robot can stay in the ring the longest. The LabVIEW VI for the BeagleBone Black and Raspberry Pi 2 is attached in the last step, LabVIEW 2014 and Linx 3.0 are required to run this code.
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!
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.
