GoPiGo is a robot car! The Base Kit is perfect if you already have a Raspberry Pi and want to get it moving. It comes with everying you need to get your Raspberry Pi rolling including the GoPiGo board, chassis, wheels, motors, encoders, and power battery pack.
With so many programming languages and USB accesories available for the Pi, you can turn your GoPiGo into anything from a WiFi controlled robot for exploring the scary spaces behind the couch to an autonomous rocket launching office enforcer. With the Raspberry Pi acting as the brains of the robot, the possibilities are infinite
- Easily assembled: Assembled in 20 minuets or less and require no prior expertise.
- Strong Extensibility: Starting from getting the robot move to trying the new functions, such as mount the camera, the blinking LED and other sensors.
- Interested Application scenarios: Mount the camera open up the possibility of all awesome projects, such as remotely delivering drinks, monitoring children and pets, exploring the house or some scary place. It can also be controlled by PS3 Controller!
