Congratulations on getting a GoPiGo Raspberry Pi Robot Kit! These are instructions for the GoPiGo2. If you have the GoPiGo1, please go here.
This page and the sub-pages will help walk you through getting it set up and started. We recommend you go through each page, in the following order:
1. Assemble the GoPiGo2 Raspberry Pi Robot Kit. (for accessories see below)
Setting up GoPiGo Software
If you’re using the Raspbian for Robots SD Card, you can skip this step. If you are using standard Raspbian or any other SD Card, please be sure to setup and install the GoPiGo software and drivers here.
After you have completed all the steps above, you can check out the Example Projects that we have made and try them out yourself or make something cool and share it with the community.
Assembly Instructions for GoPiGo Accessories
Please find the assembly instructions for each accessory in the links below:
Here are a few cool projects for the GoPiGo that we’ve done in Python & Scratch. Each one comes with building instructions, a bill of material, as well as the code to get it going!

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. Assembly instructions here.
The Line Follower attaches to your GoPiGo robot car and enables you to program it to follow a line. Program your GoPiGo to serve a drink across a room, and learn the basics of how automated warehouse or self-driving cars work! Assembly instructions found 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.
