Edukit3 robot project with ps3 controller

Tue May 31, 2016 4:39 pm

Revamped Edukit3 robot. Using a 4tronix picon zero board at present as easier to program for this project, but will look at altering it back to the supplied controller board. Built on a pizero. PS3 afterglow wireless controller with the dongle in the single pizero usb socket. Project python program arranged to run on boot, and a button on the ps3 controller is arranged to shutdown the pi, so no keyboards or other connections required. Motor speed control and fwd, backwd, right and left axis spin.
