DockerPi DIY Programmable intelligent toycar

Description

DockerPi DIY Programmable intelligent toycar is based on DockerPi Motor Board(A) and DockerPi Power Board.You could DIY it's appearance and power.

Of course,if you want to get started directly,we also provide the power board and Arcylic board for you.We offer several packages to you.The DockerPi

Power Board could provide powerful power for the car.You could choose to design its appearance by yourself.Besides,you could connect the camera module

to achieve the function of identifying objects.The following we will show you how to use the keyboard to control the car by pygame.

Remember:Don't assemble and disassemble the board when the power supply is working.They don't support hot plug

How to use


Software environment

First you need prepare a TF card to burn the raspbian.You can download the system from the official website.

When you finished this,please connect it by ssh.

  • First,please open the function of wireless function.Execute the following command:
 sudo vim /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

  • Please configure your wireless
DockerPi DIY Car(2).png
  • Then you need install the python3's module pygame
 sudo apt-get -y install python3-pygame
DockerPi DIY Car(3).png
  • You also need to install python3's smbus
 sudo apt-get -y install python3-smbus

  • Please open the RaspberryPi's I2C
  • You could install the following script to achieve the safeshut down function.
 wget -qO- https://git.io/fj3b9 | sudo bash

  • Execute it!
 sudo DISPLAY=:0.0 python3 toycar.py
  • Plug the wireless keyboard receiver into the Raspberry Pi,then enjoy it!

FAQ

  • Q: What is the maximum speed the car can reaching?
 A: It will be faster than your imagination,the max is 1300r/min.However, i suggest you don't do like this,it may damage the car.
  • Q: Sometimes,the toycar is out of my control,what's wrong with it?
 A: Maybe the raspberry pie's wireless signal is too weak.Also,this is related to your program.
  • Q: Why i have executed the command:sudo halt,but the Raspberypi and Power Board's Led is still working?
 A: Because you havn't installed the script about power.Please install it then have a try.
  • Q: If i have ran the program and the raspberrypi is fine,i have reed the value of register of speed,but the car has't any response?
 A: Please check the Power Board's power supply pin.It may be broken.
    Meantime,you may not plug the wireless keyboard receiver into the Raspberry Pi
