Description

Details

Mobile robot development platform, compatible with Raspberry Pi/Arduino

Overview

AlphaBot is a robotic development platform compatible with Raspberry Pi and Arduino. It consists of the AlphaBot mainboard, the mobile chassis, and everything required to get it moving.

Just connecting a controller board, Raspberry Pi or Arduino, and combined with our open source example code, now it's all ready to start your robotic exploration: line tracking, obstacle avoidance, video monitoring, WiFi/Bluetooth/ZigBee/Infrared remote control, etc.

Raspberry Pi or Arduino is NOT included in the price, if you don't have one in hand, these all-in-one kits are recommended: AlphaBot-Ar-Basic, AlphaBot-Ar-Bluetooth, AlphaBot-Pi

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
