Build your own robot car.

  • Raspberry Pi robot car is perfect for learning coding
  • Adapt to use at all levels, whether it’s introducing robotics to the classroom or for graduate level students looking for a mobile platform for conducting robotics research
  • Motors have built-in encoders, giving the robot precise and accurate motor control and ensuring it drives straight every time
  • Connect 5 sensors (2 analog/digital, 2 I2C, and 1 serial), 2 servos, and a camera
  • Program the 2 onboard LEDs in the front, as well as 2 multicolored LEDs on the top
  • Robot broadcasts a Wi-Fi® signal that connects directly to your device
  • Access the DexterOS software through a web browser - nothing to download or install
  • Thick acrylic, strong metal, and a better assembly experience protect robot against bumps and falls
  • Soft rubber wheels give robot precise movement and better traction on all surfaces
  • Dozens of built-in lessons make it easy to get started learning how to program the robot
  • Lessons also cover the sensors, how to use them, and the basics of programming
  • Built-in lessons are in Bloxter, a drag-and-drop language similar to Scratch (and based on Blockly, a language by Google)
  • Bloxter makes it fun and simple to learn how to program, while also offering advanced features for those that want to go beyond the basics
  • A clean, simple Python programming area with easily accessible sample programs and a variety of pre-installed libraries is also available
  • More advanced users that want to connect the robot to the Internet or code in C, Java, or Node.js will need to download and install Raspbian for Robots (free to download from
  • To update software and firmware, just download a zip file on a USB drive, plug it into your robot, boot it up, and let it run
  • Classroom option allows updating of multiple robots in a row
  • Battery power indicator, Wi-Fi® connection indicator, and an easy way to rename your robot, all improve the overall usability and save time, especially in the classroom
  • NOTE: If you have a MacBook Air® without an ethernet jack, you might want to get an ethernet to USB adapter (only for Raspbian for Robots software)
