Every Robotics enthusiast knows the excitement of building your own smart robot, programming it, and releasing it to proudly whiz around the living room floor. Whether you’re building your first mobile robot or designing a large complex robotic arm, these amazing inventions never fail to draw the eye of everyone in the room. What’s even more exciting is the increased accessibility for Robotics hobbyists to acquire and learn so much. One of the best ways to get started and grow your knowledge is through building Robotic Kits like this Alphabot Raspberry Pi Robotics Kit.

The Alphabot is the perfect choice to begin your hoard of mini robot companions. Compatible with Raspberry Pi and Arduino, the Alphabot Robotics Kit provides a platform with everything but a microcontroller to start your journey into the world of Robotics. This awesome robotics kit includes the Alphabot mainboard, a coalition of smart components and interfaces ready for you to plug and play. By connecting your choice controller board (which we recommend Arduino Uno or Raspberry Pi 3B+), you can explore exciting robotics programming such as line tracking, obstacle avoidance, IR remote control, and video monitoring via network. With the amazing Raspberry Pi and Arduino online open-source resources and the modular design of the Alphabot, you'll learn how to extend, refit, and finally build your own mobile robot designs!

Please Note: Although this Alphabot, Raspberry Pi Robotics Kit includes excellent Electronics Components to build your Alphabot robot, it does not include the Raspberry Pi microcontroller board or batteries necessary to complete it. For these parts, please be sure to look at our catalogues for a Raspberry Pi or Arduino Uno and 2x 18650 Li-Ion batteries to build your new Alphabot Robotics Kit.

AlphaBot, Raspberry Pi Robot Kit (Pi not included)

When it comes to producing unique electronics components and modules, there are very few brands that can provide the quality that Waveshare can. Based in the Futian District in Shenzhen, China, Waveshare are experts in developing electronics to a high standard of quality, which have been thoroughly tested to work seamlessly with corresponding development platforms and systems – such as the E-Ink HATs for Raspberry Pi’s.

What we love most about Waveshare is how they are dedicated to providing quality products, and have moved away from the typical “Made in China” stigma – cheap products with cheap parts and components. Instead, Waveshare understand the value of supplying quality products and building sustainable relationships with international resellers and distributors. They know that consistent quality will result in consistent business, and as such they always ensure strict quality control for each and every product that comes out of the manufacturing plant.

We are always excited to peruse through their vast catalogue of exciting new products to find unique modules, components or even entire development boards that are designed with quality in mind. Because we know that every cent that we spend with Waveshare will be well-spent, with each product that order adding real value to our own catalogue of products.
