AlphaBot - versions:
Manufacturer: Waveshare
Compatibility: Arduino Raspberry Pi


AlphaBot chassis with two wheels and a ball bearing. It has two micro DC motors that can be controlled using any microcontroller with motor driver. It has a line sensor, module speed measurement, proximity IR sensor and a remote control. The platform is compatible with popular mini-controllers, for examplethe ArduinoorRaspberry Pi(you can connect them separately and they canalso work together).

The platform is simple to install, to launch the robot simply install the motor, install the wheels and add any controller (e.g.Arduino Uno). On the platform there is a motor driver LM298P, voltage regulator LM2596 for a stable 5V voltage and the A/C TLC1543 converter, allowing the use of analog sensors with the Raspberry Pi. It also has a lot of connectors that facilitate the connection of additional modules.


The product is compatible with Arduino and Raspberry Pi

The manufacturer offers auser guide, along with an exemplary program for Arduino and Raspberry.
