£33.29 ex VAT
The Kitronik Autonomous Robotics Platform for Raspberry Pi Pico is a fun and hands-on introduction to buggy robotics. It comes with an easy to follow booklet to guide you step-by-step through everything you need to get started! This Robotics Platform is a great place to start for beginners and advanced users alike and it has been specially designed to grow with you and your projects, thanks to the additional servo and ultrasonic sensor connectors.
The kit comes with the autonomous robotics platform chassis, 2 wheels and tyres, a Kitronik line-following sensor board, and an ultrasonic sensor. It is quick and simple to build, with no soldering required and only minimal mechanical assembly.
The included booklet guides you through everything you need to know about your new Robotics Platform. It contains a detailed assembly guide, info on preparing the Raspberry Pi Pico, instructions for installing an editor (Thonny), and instructions on how to write code for every feature of the Robotics Platform. No corner of the board is left unexplained. To help make programming the robot even easier, Kitronik has developed a set of Micropython modules. More information on these can be found in the booklet supplied with the kit.
Please Note: Raspberry Pi Pico, Micro USB Cable and Batteries are not included.
