I need a tiny bot to do the following:
- track line
- avoid obstacle
- identify IR emitting objects
- identify multiple colors
- identify direction (with compass)
- tell x-y axis with an accelerometer
I’m interested in getting the 3pi robotic kit, but I would like to get the parts to assemble one instead, and then add a couple of sensors on.
I just noticed that the 3pi kit comes assembled. I would rather to get the parts which I’ll do it myself. that also means a lot of soldering to do… Yes, I’ll have to learn it.
Would someone verify the following is correct?
Parts list with approximate cost?
Pololu Orangutan LV-168 Robot Controller (+ Pololu Orangutan USB programmer, $28), $53 OR
Pololu Orangutan X2 Robot Controller VNH3 + LCD, $140 (don’t need the usb programmer, correct?)
Pololu QTR-8A Reflectance Sensor Array, $15
Pololu MMA7260QT ±6g Triple-Axis Accelerometer , $20
Chassis & motors:
Pololu 5" Robot Chassis RRC04A Solid Blue, $8 (only need one right?)
Pololu Ball Caster Variety Pack, $28
Pololu Micro Metal Gearmotor Bracket $6 (3 of them)
Pololu 100:1 Micro Metal Gearmotor, $48 (3 of them)
Encoder for Pololu Wheel 42x19mm , $45 (3 of them)
Pololu BCM Wheel $6 (2 of them)
Is the list sufficient?
