AlphaBot2 robot building kit for Pi, with controller Raspberry Pi 3 Model B

Overview

This AlphaBot2 robot kit is designed to use with Raspberry Pi 3 Model B. It features rich common robot functions including line tracking, obstacle avoiding, Bluetooth/infrared/WiFi remote control, video monitoring, etc.

Thanks to the highly integrated modular design, it is fairly easy to assemble by a snap, no soldering, no wiring. After a few minutes spent on hardware assembing, you're almost there, our open source demo codes is ready to help you get started fast.

Raspberry Pi 3 Features

  • BCM2837, 1.2GHz 64-bit quad-core ARM Cortex-A53
  • 1GB RAM
  • 10/100 Ethernet port
  • 802.11n WiFi NIC
  • Bluetooth 4.1 & Bluetooth Low Energy (BLE)
  • HDMI port
  • USB 2.0 interface x 4
  • Micro SD card slot
  • Combined 3.5mm audio jack and composite video
  • 40-pin GPIO interface
  • Camera interface (CSI)
  • Display interface (DSI)
  • Upgraded power management, supports more peripherals (requires a 2.5A power supply or above)

AlphaBot2 Features

AlphaBot2 employs a 2-layer structure to provide excellent stability and compatibility.

AlphaBot2-Base, the lower base chassis:

  • 5-ch infrared sensor, analog output, combined with PID algorithm, stable line tracking
  • Onboard modules like line tracking, obstacle avoiding, needs no messy wiring
  • TB6612FNG dual H-bridge motor driver, compared with L298P, it's more efficient, more compact, and less heating
  • N20 micro gear motor, with metal gears, low noise, high accuracy
  • Onboard RGB LEDs, true color lighting, pretty cool

AlphaBot2-Pi, the upper adapter board for controller:

  • LM2596 voltage regulator, provides the Pi with stable 5V power
  • TLC1543 AD acquisition chip, allows the Pi to use analog sensors
  • PCA9685 servo controller, make it more smoothly to rotate the pan head
  • CP2102 UART converter, easy for controlling the Pi via UART
