Raspberry Pi

Active Robots supply many different kinds of Raspberry Pi kit to cater for every type of project. These kits take advantage of one of the most popular and versatile miniature computing boards on the market.

Developed in the UK, these credit-card-sized computer boards were originally designed to aid the teaching of computer science in schools. However, their combination of small size and big capabilities has made them into a phenomenon. Robotics enthusiasts have already shown how to adapt a Raspberry Pi controller or kit for an extraordinary range of applications.

Many users put these single-board computers to work as media boxes, or simply as low-powered but lightweight computers for everyday use. More inventive types have used them as the basis for a range of devices, such as digital cameras. However, they have also been used to power a range of robotics builds with varying degrees of complexity. Their small profile makes them easy to incorporate into projects of all sizes, and they are easy to program, with a range of basic programs and applications freely available online. This makes them ideal for handling input and controlling output in robot projects.

These computers have 256MB or 512MB of RAM, depending on the model, and use SD cards for storage. Processes are handled by a 700 MHz processor and dedicated GPU, meaning that overall these are very powerful computers for their tiny size. As standard, they run a custom Linux-based operating system called "Raspbian" or any one of several other Linux distributions that are made available for the system.

Pi boards can be purchased as stand-alone boards or as part of a kit. A kit will include a standard Pi board bundled with the necessary components and accessories for a range of specific projects and applications.
