This Raspberry Pi-based robot’s motors are driven with a TB6612FNG motor driver carrier.
The LightRobot is a 3pi Robot that has been modified with RGB LEDs, an RN-41 Bluetooth module, and a sonar range finder that is controlled with voice commands and the accelerometer from an Android phone. The source code for the robot and the Android app are also available on the project’s GitHub page.
