At PicoKit, we are committed to excellence in Microcontroller Education.
PicoPi Pro & USB is a complete robot platform with flowchart software, USB programmer, and Worksheet Activities and Video Tutorials. This project was designed in conjection with David Oswald from King's Christian College on the Gold Coast, Australia. PicoPi Pro plugs into your computer via the PicoFLow USB Programmer (included in this package). This kit requires construction and basic soldering experience.
This is our exemplar robot for use with PicoFlow Alpha V7 (Free software) and the PicoFlow USB Programmer
