RaspiRobot is an expansion board for the Raspberry Pi that turns it into a robot controller.
The board comes as a kit of through-hole parts which is easy to assemble with even a basic soldering iron and limited soldering experience. A step-by-step assembly guide is available to help you through the process.
After you've assembled it, simply plug the RaspiRobot Board into the GPIO port on the Raspberry Pi and it will provide dual bi-directional motor controllers, two open-collector outputs, two switch inputs, a pair of status LEDs, and even a voltage regulator capable of powering the RPi using a battery source from 7-12V DC.
A Python library module creates an easy interface to the robot hardware from your software on the RPi. The combination of Raspberry Pi and the RaspiRobot Board makes it easier and more affordable than you might think to build a robot with computer vision, web access or even machine learning using the Linux operating system and Python code.
The lower picture shows what this board will look like after you have assembled it.
