IMU Sensor for a Raspberry Pi Robot
The sensor has 9 degrees of freedom (9-DOF) and provides an accurate and high-speed orientation of your robot. The sensor has a built in compass, accelerometer, and gyroscope. You can use these to tell which compass direction your robot is turned to, how fast it is turning, what angle it is to the ground, and how fast it is changing speed.
It comes with a grove cable to plug the sensor into the GoPiGo3, BrickPi, or GrovePi and begin measuring; no soldering required!

This sensor can be paired with the Distance Sensor and used by educators to teach advanced math concepts as they turn their BrickPi or GoPiGo into a BalanceBot!

GoPiGo3 is the newest version of our robot car! The GoPiGo3 Base Kit is perfect if you already have a Raspberry Pi and want to get it moving. It includes the GoPiGo3 board, chassis, wheels, motors, encoders, and power battery pack.
The Dexter Industries Sensor Mount allows you to easily attach sensors to your GoPiGo3. Our custom design allows you to snap sensors right onto the mount and then snap the mount onto the GoPiGo3. No screws or soldering iron required! Attach any of the Dexter Industries or Grove sensors to your Raspberry Pi robot.
Distance Sensor for the GoPiGo. The distance sensor can be mounted to the GoPiGo Raspberry Pi robot using the servo package to enable rotation. It detects distances from obstacles and objects, giving your robot the ability to navigate.
This package includes the cable for connecting the Distance Sensor to the GoPiGo.
