This kit comes with AlphaBot robotic platform (line tracking, obstacle avoidance, speed measuring, IR control), and a camera (with servo and 2 DOF pan head).

With modules in the kit, you can fast get started with robotic development like line tracking, obstacle avoidance, IR remote control, and video monitoring via network, etc. What's more, thanks to the rich Raspberry Pi open source resources, and the modular design of AlphaBot, you'll learn how to extend and refit, and finally build your own Raspberry Pi robot.

AlphaBot Features

  • Raspberry Pi/Arduino interfaces, works with either one separately, or both

  • Arduino extend header, supports Arduino shields
  • Modular design, plug-and-play modules like line tracking, obstacle avoidance, speed measuring, etc. eliminating the trouble of connecting mess wires.
  • LM298P motor driver with diode protection circuit, more safety
  • LM2596 voltage regular, provides stable 5V power to the Raspberry Pi/Arduino
  • TLC1543 AD acquisition chip, allows the Pi to use analog sensors
