Free Raspberry Pi projects always come in handy. Therefore, in most cases, it’s useful to think of free Raspberry Pi robots as a playground for your imagination. Whether you are looking for inspiration, professional coding or engineering solutions — in all three cases you can learn a lot, you can apply them, and you can build customized robots upon them without reinventing the wheel all the time.
A mobile robot controlled by a Raspberry Pi board is not hard to design but require time and budget. Using a kit with electronics and mechanics is the effortless solution for beginners and professional users as well. However, to build a wheeled Raspberry Pi robot, you can use the CamJam EduKit 3 kit that includes two DC motors, a custom designed motor controller board, an ultrasonic distance sensor, and other parts to form a complete platform for prototyping robots.
The designer Brian Corteil shows us in an article how to build a sub A6 robot for the Micro Hi Noon contest.
