What can I do with this Raspberry Pi remote control car kit?
This remote control car kit is a great way to practice constructing your own projects. It is a fantastic tool for school teachers or others who want to get kids coding, and is supported by an online portal. Access to this portal accompanies every copy of the kit, and includes resources such as lesson ideas, worksheets, videos and handouts. The great thing about this kit is that the student can ultimately play with a remote control car they have programmed and built themselves.

In addition to the documents on the website, the kit comes with printed instructions. These allow you to make full use of the contents, such as the pre-loaded SD Card, Wi-Fi accessories and Xbox controller. This kit is designed to assist those wanting to gain experience with electronics, building projects and developing skills in computer programming. It runs using one of the world’s smallest computers – the Raspberry Pi.

Why does this kit come with the Raspberry Pi?
This remote control car kit comes with a Raspberry Pi, which is a computer is as small as a credit card. It plugs into any TV screen with an HDMI or composite video input to use as its display. On the Raspberry Pi you can surf the web, type using a word processor or write your own computer programs thanks to the versatile ARM processor. It was engineered to provide an affordable way to learn how to program, and its size and power make it perfect for portable projects.

This kit has been designed to introduce the young to Python programming language, and how to use it to operate real-world objects. This is achieved by first allowing them to build programs in a simpler graphical programming language called Scratch, then applying the same principals to text-based Python.

The Scratch programming language uses a graphical drag and drop system. This program is included as a development tool to get kids coding and understand how to control real life objects like motors.

What is included in this Raspberry Pi Remote Control Car kit?
This kit comes with a Raspberry Pi, software and all of the power and video cables to plug, play and get started.

To transform your Raspberry Pi into a device which can move around, you get a L289N chip motor shield. This allows you to connect four geared motors and four wheels. This is powered with six AA batteries, which are included, and the Raspberry Pi is powered by a 5V battery pack which is also included. The Xbox controller to control the car is supplied with the kit. Alternatively, you can control the car using the mini router found in this kit.
