Dexter GoPiGo2 Base Kit

The GoPiGo2 Base Kit is perfect if you already have a Raspberry Pi and want to get it moving. It includes the GoPiGo2 board, chassis, wheels, motors, encoders, and power battery pack.
 

What’s included?

  • GoPiGo2 board (red board)
  • chassis (frame, wheels, hardware)
  • motors
  • encoders
  • power battery pack & cable (batteries not included)

What’s not included?

Suggested components required to make it a mobile robot (NOT INCLUDED):

  • Raspberry Pi (GoPiGo is compatible with all version of the Raspberry Pi): This board is the main brains of the robot that will connect to the GoPiGo board.
  • mini Wi-Fi Dongle: Can be plugged in to the Raspberry Pi so you can unplug the ethernet cord and make it function as a remote control, mobile car.
  • microSD Card: Required “hard drive” for the Raspberry Pi (comes with Dexter Industry’s custom software “Raspbian for Robots”).
  • Ethernet Cable: Required for plugging in to your computer to program the GoPiGo.
  • Power Supply: Wall plug to power your Raspberry Pi while you are programming it, rather than using the batteries.
  • Batteries: GoPiGo requires 8 AA batteries, which are not included.

Check out the Starter Kit if don’t already have a Raspberry Pi and are starting from scratch!


What’s required for assembly?

Assembly requires a philips head screw driver & 8 AA batteries (not included). Assembly instructions can be found on the support page. 
Visit the GoPiGo Product Support & Documentation page for step-by-step tutorials, technical specs, detailed product pictures, and sample code libraries.

Note: If you have a Macbook Air without an ethernet jack, you might want to get an ethernet to USB adapter.


What else do I need to know?

  • Works with all versions of the Raspberry Pi
  • Software examples and API are provided by Dexter Industries (open-source repository on Github)
  • Lego Technic bricks: GoPiGo is compatible with Lego Technic parts, but we don’t sell them.

Awesome service with super fast delivery. The chat option really helped me choose the products, know they were in stock and would be delivered in time. The items were posted the same day and I couldn't believe it when they arrived from Perth to Melbourne in 3 days! Thanks for your wonderful support - our students were able to complete their robotic projects in time.
