Kitronik :MOVE Motor for the BBC micro:bit(V1 & V2) (Kitronik:MOVE Motor)
Description:

Develop your coding skills with the Kitronik :MOVE Motor for micro:bit, a fun introduction to buggies and robotics.

The Kitronik :MOVE Motor for the BBC micro:bit provides a fun introduction to buggy robotics. More than just a programmable buggy, learning to use all of the included features will give the budding roboteer a solid grounding in robotics as a whole.

Learn about movement, how to utilise light and sound, obstacle detection and avoidance, and how to code :MOVE Motor to follow a line. When used in conjunction with the micro:bit's radio features, the possibilities are endless.

Attached to the chassis are two bi-directional DC motors with variable speed control. The wheels have rubber tyres and are a simple push-fit onto the motor shafts. Slot a BBC micro:bit into the edge connector and you are ready to code. There is no other assembly required and no tools required.

There are built-in battery holders for 4x AA batteries. This provides a regulated voltage supply to power the BBC micro:bit which is fed into the edge connector. There is also a power switch to conserve batteries when the buggy is not in use.

The micro:bit slots into the onboard edge connector. Code the micro:bit, plug it into the buggy, switch the power on, and then play.


CODE IT !

:MOVE Motor can be coded using the Microsoft MakeCode editor. Kitronik has produced a set of custom MakeCode blocks to simplify coding the completed buggy. The booklet that comes with the buggy contains more detailed instructions on using the blocks and writing code. If you are feeling more adventurous or relish a challenge, :MOVE Motor can also be coded with Python.

Also within the booklet (that comes inside the box), are some quick tutorials to get you started. There are also additional online tutorials and step by step guides for extra projects.

PiBorg - Motor Controller (Piborg motor controller)

Description:

The PicoBorg is an ultra compact motor controller for the Raspberry Pi!

With PicoBorg, you can turn on and off fans, motors, solenoids or relays from your Raspberry Pi. There are 4 low side drivers, so you can turn on and off 4 devices, and one device is connected to the Pi's PWM pin, so you can vary the speed of that motor! Motor control is accessed via a simple GUI, which can be installed by following the PicoBorg installation instructions.

Motor power is not taken directly from the Raspberry Pi, so there's no risk of your Pi dropping out. Instead, the PicoBorg utilises a battery pack to drive the motors; meaning you're not restricted to 5V motors, in fact you can drive ANY motors up to 20V!

The PicoBorg is perfect for any small motor project, for example:

  • 4 fans on/off control over all and vary speed on one fan
  • 4 solenoids
  • 4 DC motors (on / off control over all and vary speed on one motor)
  • Control one 6 wire stepper motor in both directions
  • Rover project!

The PicoBorg Features:

  • Drive 4 x DC Motors (on/off) or 1 x 6-Wire Stepper motor (Bi-Direction)
  • Allows speed control on 1 x Motor
  • Max 20V recommended 12V or less
  • Max current 2.5A (stall) or less
  • Primarily designed to be used with large resistance, low inductance motors and for learning and experimenting purposes.

Warnings:
  • As there are no pull up or pull down resistors on the inputs, the picoBorg expects the Pi to be controlling the pins when the power is applied. Power the Pi first, run the software and then apply power to the PicoBorg.
  • There is no thermal shutoff, keep an eye on temperature of the FETs and diodes
  • There is no current limiting, you must observe current restrictions
  • There is no short circuit or reverse voltage protection
  • For commercial applications and control of larger motors and lower resistance coils etc, PiBorg or PiBorg nano may be a better solution
  • If you are new to electronics and getting started, we recommend you don't use a battery, rather a low current <100mA power supply as this can be more forgiving if you get things wrong
  • Be very careful of connections and soldering as mistakes could potentially hurt your picoBorg and Raspberry Pi.

Aluminum 2WD TT Robot/Motor Chassis - Purple (aluminum robot chassis purple)

I like the purple color:) It matches Maker UNO.

Description:

This Aluminum Chassis in Blinka purple makes for an excellent robot body. It's a single piece of bent 2mm thick aluminum, with a variety of holes, slots and cutouts for mounting boards, sensors, and servos. The sides are notched to fit two DC Gear 'TT' motors perfectly - There are four M3 and nuts are included for mounting the motors. In the front you can screw on a ball caster. You can build a very sturdy (and quite handsome!) little robot rover with this metal frame.

Specifications:

  • It's made of aluminum so it's light and strong
  • The anodizing is quite attractive as a mobile robot, if you use Maker UNO or Maker Pi RP2040, it looks awesome
  • Can be used to build a 2-wheel mobile robot
  • Tons of mounting holes & slots!
  • You can drill and cut aluminum so it's easy to modify
  • There are ready mounting holes for Arduino UNO , and Raspberry Pi (though, for Raspberry Pi, there is some slight error).

Note: This is a kit with loose parts, you need to assemble it yourself, DIY :)

Then you will also need a microcontroller and motor driver that can drive the 5V DC motors. We recommend one of the following

Geekcreit® 3D Printer A4988 Reprap Stepper Motor Driver Module (red stepper driver)
Description:

A4988 is a complete microstepping motor driver with built-in translator for easy operation. This product is available in full, half, 1/4, 1/8 and 1/16 step modes operate bipolar stepper motors, output drive capacity of up to 35 V and ± 2 A. A4988 includes a fixed off-time current regulator, the regulator in slow or mixed decay modes. A4988 converter is the key to the easy implementation. As long as the "step" input inputting one pulse drives the motor one microstep. There are no phase sequence tables, high frequency control lines, or complex interfaces to program.

In the micro-step operation, A4988 chopping control inside automatically selects the current decay mode (Slow or Mixed). In mixed decay mode, the device is initially set to a fixed downtime in some fast decay, then the rest of the slow decay downtime. Mixed decay current control scheme results in reduced audible motor noise, increased step accuracy, and reduced power consumption. Internal synchronous rectification control circuitry is provided to improve the pulse-width modulation (PWM) operation power consumption. Internal circuit protection includes: thermal shutdown with hysteresis, undervoltage lockout (UVLO), and crossover-current protection. Special power sequencing.

A4988 surface mount QFN package (ES), a size of 5 mm × 5 mm, nominal overall package height of 0.90 mm, with an exposed pad for enhanced thermal dissipation. This package is Pb (suffix-T), with 100% matte tin leadframe plating.

Features:

Simple step and direction control interface
Short-to-ground and shorted-load protection
Five different step resolutions: full-step, half-step, quarter-step, eighth-step, and sixteenth-step
Intelligent chopping control that automatically selects the correct current decay mode (fast decay or slow decay)
Over-temperature thermal shutdown, under-voltage lockout, and crossover-current protection
Adjustable current control lets you set the maximum current output with a potentiometer, which lets you use voltages above       your stepper motor’s rated voltage to achieve higher step rates
