Self-Balancing Robot using Raspberry Pi 2

I’m working on my first Raspberry Pi 2 Model B project just to test the latest hardware. I will start baby step for this project, learning the Raspberry Pi robotics and beyond I hope.

Here are the parts I bought to start my Raspberry Pi Robot.

A sub-total of $149.52, not bad compare to my other robot project.

It’s getting close, still waiting for some parts to complete the foundation of my Self Balancing Robot.

Assembled with all the parts … it’s looking good.

Next testing the program.

Testing MPU6050, not responding see below.

pi@raspberrypi ~ $ sudo i2cdetect -y 1

I need to check the wiring between MPU6050 and Raspberry Pi.

Testing Motors I’ve got some issues. When I test the motors. Only left wheel will spin for 5 secs, in reverse both of them spin for 5 seconds. Right now, a mystery to solve … help anyone!

Still in progress …

    This looks really cool!!!! I am thinking of starting the project as well, I am undecided between arduino and Raspberry pi. Any suggestion regarding that? Did you manage to make it work?

    I prefer to use Raspberry pi but you can also use Arduino to make a similar project.
