RaspiDuinoRover - another iPhone-controlled rover robot

Over time the Raspberry Pi computer has gone from a simple board with which to learn programming to the hub of a hardware/software ecosystem with great potential, and this metamorphosis has been demonstrated very well by Arnaud Boudou with his RaspiDuinoRover.

The name says it all - it's a Raspberry Pi-based robot that can safely control motors using an Arduino and motor shield, with the unit receiving control over WiFi from an Apple iPhone. 

Reproducing the rover is possible, and Arnaud has supplied the required code for all platforms, including the schematics and useful notes from his websiteAnd for more, we're on twitter and Google+, so follow us for news and product updates as well.

If you're looking for a more permanent way to mount circuitry to your Raspberry Pi, check out our new PiBreak - the prototyping board for the Raspberry Pi. It provides labelled breakout pins for all GPIOs, a large prototyping area with solder pads, and power rails for easy power connection:

Furthermore the PiBreak also includes mounting hardware to firmly attach it to your Raspberry Pi using a nut, bolt, and spacer - and is compatible with all revisions of both model A and B Raspberry Pi computers. For more information about our new PiBreak board, our Getting Started guide, and to order - visit the product page.
