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.
Raspberry Pi or Arduino is NOT included in the price.
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
