There are many ways to control the robot remotely. You could use the application on the PC (works on any OS) to control the car. You can control the camera’s direction including seeing the images through the camera in real time. You can also perform control the car and view the camera using either a web browser including from mobile devices i.e. phones, tablets, etc. The Raspberry Pi Smart Car (PiCar V) kit for the Raspberry Pi is a great way to dive into the awesome world of robotics and build on your own STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) learning journey.

The kit includes everything you need to build the Smart car. You will need to purchase a Raspberry Pi, a mini SD Card (the Pi uses that as  hard drive), and two 18650 rechargeable lithium batteries. Those batteries are enough to power both the Pi itself (so the car isn’t tethered) as well as provide enough voltage to run the 3 servos AND motors to drive and steer the car around. You can also expand the car with other attachments like light sensors, line followers, and more. The PiCar 2.0 includes the chassis, a nice USB WiFi adapter with antenna (one less thing to think about if you’re using a Raspberry Pi  like me), a USB webcam for computer vision scenarios. It includes a TB6612 Motor Driver, PCA9685 PWM (Pulse Width Modulation) Servo Driver with 16 channels for future expansion. The kit also helpfully includes all the tools, screwdriver, wrenches, and bolts. All the code for the SunFounder PiCar-V is on GitHub including a bunch of YouTube videos from various folks online doing the same thing which will speed up your STEM learning journey. Documentation is included and accessible online ensuring that you have help every step of the way.

Please Note – This kit ships with additional options – Raspberry Pi 4B, an SD card with Raspbian Operating System, Power Supply, USB Micro to USB C adapter.
