More electronic components


You are already one step closer to building your own robot as you already know the basics of electronics and have developed few applications using Raspberry Pi. To take further steps in this direction, in this chapter, you will learn how to develop a remote-controlled robot that will be able to live stream video over the Internet and also send distance of the nearest object in real time. Before you move ahead, you need to understand a few more electronics components:

  • Introduction to motors

  • Introduction to multimeter

  • The robotic base

  • The level converter

  • Motor driver IC / H-Bridge

  • The Raspberry Pi camera

  • An ultrasonic sensor

  • The Raspberry Pi battery

  • The Raspberry Pi WiFi module
