Maker Pi RP2040 - Simplifying Robotics with Raspberry Pi RP2040 (Maker Pi RP2040 robotics)
Description:

Cytron Maker Pi RP2040 features the first microcontroller designed by Raspberry Pi - RP2040, embedded on a robot controller board. This board comes with dual channel DC motor driver, 4 servo motor ports and 7 Grove I/O connectors, ready for your next DIY robot / motion control project. Now you can build robot, while trying out the new RP2040 chip.

The DC motor driver onboard is able to control 2x brushed DC motors or 1x bipolar/unipolar stepper motor rated from 3.6V to 6V, providing up to 1A current per channel continuously. The built-in Quick Test buttons and motor output LEDs allow functional test of the motor driver in a quick and convenient way, without the need of writing any code. Vmotor for both DC and servo motors depends on the input voltage supplied to the board.

Powering the Maker Pi 2040

There are three ways to supply power to the Maker Pi RP2040 - via USB (5V) socket, with a single cell LiPo/Li-Ion battery or through the VIN (3.6-6V) terminals. However only one power source is needed to power up both controller board and motors at a time. Power supply from all these power sources can all be controlled with the power on/off switch onboard.




Maker Pi RP2040 features all the goodness of Cytron's Maker series products. It too has lots of LEDs useful for troubleshooting (& visual effects), is able to make quite some noise with the onboard piezo buzzer and comes with push buttons ready to detect your touch.

AlphaBot, Mobile robot for Raspberry Pi or Arduino (alphabot robot pi/arduino)

Description:

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.

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
