GoPiGo Core: a mobile robot running on Raspberry Pi

The GoPiGo Core has everything you’ll need to create your first educational robot on wheels – except for the Raspberry Pi, which you can buy separately (get the Raspberry Pi 3 board) or included in the GoPiGo Starter Kit. All the hardware (wheels, chassis, screws) and electric/electronic components are included. You can control everything using your GoPiGo board, connected to a Raspberry Pi (model 3B or 3B+ recommended).

The GoPiGo robotics kit is a fast and fun solution for learning the basics of programming on Raspberry Pi (from 9 years). Tutorials are available to help you mount your kit from scratch (see below). To top it all, you’ll be able to improve your robot with a line-following module, a distance sensor, a camera or a light/colour sensor for instance!

Programming the GoPiGo kit

The Raspberry Pi programming board has long earned a reputation for being accessible to all users – whatever their skill level – and at all budgets. Connecting GoPiGo to your Raspberry Pi only takes a few minutes. You can then choose between different programmes: Scratch allows you to take your first steps in the world of coding thanks to a fun visual programming editor. For the most advanced users, it’s possible to code in Python, Java or C++.
