8BitRobots is a Raspberry Pi Module for Generic Robotic Brain
Software engineer Tim Wilkinson has made the process of constructing robots easier with his 8BitRobots module — a standard hardware and software platform that works with basic robot functions.
The 8BitRobots Modules are made up of a few components, not the least of which is a Pi Zero, a fantastically powerful Linux computer that is available for five dollars. With an add-on board, cleverly named the RoBonnet, the Pi Zero gets PWM outputs for servos and ESCs, an H-bridge for motors, TTL serial, encoder inputs, a pressure and temperature sensor, an IMU, a power monitor, and everything else you need for a successful Pi robot.
All of the hardware is contained in a 3D-printed enclosure for easy management and implementation.
