RS5 – 3D printed Raspberry Pi robot

RS5 3D printed robot is the result of precise balancing and computer vision based on RaspberryPI 3 .

The idea of Samuel Matos :

The idea for this robot is to have a platform to implement cool features, it has some potential that can be used to develop a really nice robot. I would like to make it available for other people, that would require some more time and money to develop it, make it more close to a product. I’m not sure if there are people interested in a robot that requires some advanced programming skills.

The robot components communicates via UART, using a Bluetooth . RaspberryPI 3 controls directly the the microcontroller that balance the robot depending on the task and the current orientation from the sensors.
