Edukit 3 robot kit, revamped with 4Tronix picon zero board and python program to control it with a ps3 wireless controller. The pizero has the dongle for the ps3 controller in its single usb port, and is arranged to boot automatically into the python program driving the robot. A red led lights when the system is ready for action. The left hand joystick is sensed and used to control the motor speed and direction. A button on the controller is sensed to initiate shutdown when finished, so the whole process is automatic and doesn’t require any keyboard, mouse or screen. software is availabe for download at:
video of the robot in operation is here
This project uses a three colour led mounted on a RasPiO Pro Hat connected to a Pi and controlled by a ps3 wireless controller to explore colour mixing. Includes full write up, program download and video link. Read all about it here
The third and final part of my MeArm robot arm controlled by a wireless PS3 Controller is now available here. It adds some further commands to the robot repertoire, and also features a new video showing the arm being put through its paces.
In this second visit to the MeArm robot I add the ability to record and replay a sequence of movements by the arm.

I take a trip away from Sonic Pi, and do a project to control a MeArm robot arm with a PS3 Wireless controller with the aid of a 4tronix picon zero board. Read how in this article here
