Fetchbot II Fetchbot II

Fetchbot is a robotics project with the end goal of creating a roving bot that can chase, pick up, and return a ball.

Fetchbot II

Fetchbot 2

This version has the goal of chasing a laser pointer dot.

Hardware

Total: $88.46

With batteries, jumpers, and other parts you should plan on spending about $100.00 on this project, not including necessary tools like screwdrivers, a computer, and for setting up the Pi Zero: a keyboard, mouse or touchpad, HDMI monitor, and mini HDMI cable or adapter.

Software

  • OS - Raspbian Stretch
  • Development Language - Node.js 9.*
  • GPIO library - pigpio
  • Socket.io for web UI

I use n to install and upgrade Node.js on the Raspberry Pi.

You can’t perform that action at this time.
