Accessories for the GoPiGo.
Here we have a list of accessories that help you do a lot of cool things with the GoPiGo. Check out some of the projects here.
This sensor enables the GoPiGo to know how close or far away it is from an object. Check out how you can use it to run your GoPiGo robot through an obstacle course or maze. Use the Servo Package to help the ultrasonic sensor turn to help you navigate.
The GoPiGo Line Follower attaches to the GoPiGo to allows you to follow a line. Assembly instructions here.
The power supply plugs right into the wall and is really useful when you are developing your program so you don’t waste your batteries.
