Raspberry Pi Devastator Robot

This project involves building a robot using a Raspberry Pi Zero W and the Devastator Tank Mobile Platform from DFRobot There will be several videos in this series, the first of which is as below:

The basic setup for this robot (in terms of the motor controller and initial Python code using in the first video are the same as in my Raspberry Pi Zumo Robot build, for which information is available here. However, in the video Raspberry Pi Devastator Robot #2 I expand on the code and wiring diagram, which are now as follows:

And here is the second video for you to watch. Enjoy!

In the third part of this series I added a camera using a custom bracket that I designed in Tinkercad and 3D printed online using 3DHubs. And here is the video:

The additional code written for and shown in the the third video (for camera control, and to demonstrate camera control) is as follows:

Note that the file above named "dev_robot_camera.py" needs to be renamed to "dev_robot.py" to use with the robot (which is what it was called in the video), as this is the file that bootup.sh autoruns. However, I could not call it "dev_robot.py" here, as that file is available under video two above! :)

You can download the STL file for the braket from Thingiverse, or access (and modify) the design on Tinkercad -- or just search on Tinkercad for "explainingcomputers".
