Product description: 3pi+ Standard Edition - robot platform with 32U4 controller and 30:1 HPCB motors - Pololu 3737
Assembled3pi+ robot platform in Standard Edition versionwith microHPCBDC motorswith 30:1 gearing. The robot is equipped withATmega32U4controllerwith 9DoF sensor, IR reflex used for line tracking, collision sensor (placed on the bumper),LCD display, buzzer and power switch. Two motors withencodersalong with two wheels with silicone tires and a support ball allow the robot to move at a speed of 1.5 m/s.
Equipment of the 3pi+ robot
The Pololu 3pi+ robot is equipped with a main board based on32U4chip, its diameter is only9.7 cm. It has aUSB interfacefor programming and anArduinocompatible bootloader, for programming use aUSB - microUSB cable(not included). The robot can be programmed inArduino IDEenvironment, there are also available libraries and sample codes for Arduino, which will help to start working with the platform. For more advanced users, there are additional ports to which you can connect additional accessories. The board also includesan H-bridgefor motor control and sensors, along with encoders. You can find such sensors as: 3-axis accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer, 5 IR reflective sensors to detect surface edges, as well as right and left collision sensors. Three buttons for any user use, LCD display, buzzer, and status LEDs.
