2. Materials and Tools
Beyond the Pololu 3pi robot + USB programmer combo, you will need a few other materials for this project. You only need the materials listed under the “required” section to make the RC 3pi work, but the optional header makes it easier to reconfigure your 3pi with other sensors later by allowing you to unplug your RC receiver.
- a two-channel radio-control transmitter/receiver set that outputs standard RC servo pulses
- 2 short female to female servo cables
- 4 wires (such as those from our 140-piece wire kit if you don’t have any wires lying around)
- double-sided foam tape
- a soldering iron and solder
