Line Follower for GoPiGo Kit

$43.99

The Line Follower attaches to your GoPiGo robot car and enables you to program it to follow a line. Program your GoPiGo to serve a drink across a room, and learn the basics of how automated warehouse or self-driving cars work!!!! Essential to any robot learning kit is a line follower!  We are introducing this sensor for the Raspberry Pi.  The sensor is an easy way to direct your robot around the floor of a classroom, your kitchen, or your office.  Just lay down some tape and start the line following program!  The sensor can detect black lines on a light background, or white lines on a dark background.  The Raspberry Pi Line tracker uses five line trackers, with the middle sensor aligned directly above the line, to give you precise and quick control of the robot.  The line tracker allows you to build a robot to follow a path that is pre-marked with tape, paint, or a marker, and allows you to control the robot indirectly while it is moving autonomously.  The line tracker turns the robot into an autonomously navigating machine that follows a line-marked path.

Please note :  The Line Follower Package cannot be purchased or shipped by itself and needs to be combined with the purchase for one of the three GoPiGo robotics kits listed below. Your order will be cancelled and money refunded if you purchase this product by itself i.e. you do not purchase the GoPiGo kit along with this item. –

  1. GoPiGo 3 Base kit
  2. GoPiGo 3 Beginners Starter kit
  3. GoPiGo 3 Advanced Starter kit

What is the GoPiGo 3 – GoPiGo3 is the newest version of our robot car! The GoPiGo3 Base Kit is perfect if you already have a Raspberry Pi and want to get it moving. It includes the GoPiGo3 board, chassis, wheels, motors, encoders, and power battery pack. Also need a Raspberry Pi 3? The best value is the Starter Kit, including all you need to get started from scratch! The GoPiGo is a complete kit to build your own robot car. GoPiGo works at the level you’re at — whether you are a parent looking for a smart, fun weekend project to do with your kid, a teacher looking for a way to increase engagement in your science course, or a grad student in need of a platform for your robotics research that requires mobility.

  • 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
