Pololu 3pi Robot is designed to excel in line-following and maze-solving competitions. It has a small size and takes just four AAA cells, while a unique power system runs the motors at a constant 9.25 V independent of the battery charge level. The regulated voltage allows Pololu 3pi Robot to reach speeds up to 100 cm/second while making precise turns and spins that don’t vary with the battery voltage.
Pololu 3pi Robot makes a great platform for people with C programming experience to learn robotics, and it is a fun environment for ambitious beginners to learn C programming. At its heart is an Atmel ATmega328P microcontroller running at 20 MHz and featuring 32 KB of flash program memory, 2 KB RAM, and 1 KB of persistent EEPROM memory. The popular, free GNU C/C++ compiler works perfectly with Pololu 3pi Robot, Atmel Studio provides a comfortable development environment, and an extensive set of libraries provided by Pololu makes it a breeze to interface with all of the integrated hardware. Pololu 3pi Robot is also compatible with the popular Arduino development platform. We provide a number of sample programs to show how to use the various 3pi components, as well as how to perform more complex behaviors such as line following and maze solving.
