Perhaps the easiest way to make your projects mobile is to add a wheeled platform. In this project, you will be introduced to some of the basics of controlling DC motors and using the BeagleBone Black to control the speed and direction of your wheeled platform.
Even though you can talk to your board, and it can talk back and see, you need to make it mobile to really call it a robot. In this project, you'll learn how to attach your board, both mechanically and electrically, to a wheeled platform. Mobility—what could be more amazing than that?
