  • 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 our support page.

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.

Assembly instructions for GoPiGo2 can be found here.

Assembly instructions for GoPiGo1 can be found here.

How do I know if I have GoPiGo 1 or 2?

GoPiGo2 comes with a red velcro strap for the battery pack. So, if you have a red velcro strap, you have the GoPiGo2!
