  • Built to last – We built a robot that can survive classroom bumps and falls with thick acrylic, stronger metal and a better assembly experience.  We added soft rubber wheels to give the robot precise movements and better traction on all surfaces.
  • All the sensors you need – Connect 5 Sensors (2 Analog/Digital, 2 I2C, 1 Serial), 2 Servos and a Camera! Program the two on-board LEDs in the front, as well as 2 multi-colored LEDs on the top!
  • Precise motor control – Motors on the GoPiGo3 have built-in encoders, giving the robot precise and accurate motor control.  This robot drives straight every time.
  • Power management –The GoPiGo3 is redesigned from the ground up to increase battery life, protect the motors, and give a better experience powering the GoPiGo3

  6. Screwdriver for assembly

What’s not included in the GoPiGo Robot Basic Kit – The following suggested components are not included –

  1. Raspberry Pi 3(GoPiGo is compatible with all version of the Raspberry Pi): This board is the main brains of the robot that will connect to the GoPiGo board.
  2. microSD Card: Required “hard drive” for the Raspberry Pi (We have two options of software you can use — DexterOS, our new software for beginners using a drag-and-drop language, Bloxter, and Python. More advanced users should get our Pi software, Raspbian for Robots, which you have to download and install yourself.
  3. Power Supply: Power your Raspberry Pi while you are programming it and save the batteries.
  4. USB Drive: 8GB drive recommended for users of DexterOS for easy software updates and storing photos and files.
  5. Batteries: The GoPiGo requires 8 AA batteries, which are not included.
  6. Ethernet Cable: Required for plugging in to your computer to program the GoPiGo.
  7. DexterOS, the software that comes with the GoPiGo Beginner Starter Kit, has dozens of free, built-in lessons to teach you to program the GoPiGo in Bloxter (our drag-and-drop language just like Scratch). There’s no software to download or install on your device.
