CREATE A ROAMING RVR

The RVR Advanced Kit from Sphero + SparkFun provides all the functionality of the basic kit with some added goodies; the addition of time-of-flight distance sensing in the front and rear. Based around Raspberry Pi’s small yet powerful Zero W model, the kit provides both global positioning and Computer Vision to the Sphero RVR. A pan-tilt device allows a camera to not only provide video from the "driver" viewpoint of the RVR, but also the ability to look around it as well.

In addition, the Raspberry Pi Zero W and the Camera provide enough power to run most machine vision programs that leverage the Raspberry Pi platform. The included GPS board provides global position capabilities to the RVR. Whether you’re setting up a geofence which the RVR must stay within or mapping where the RVR has been, this GPS module has the accuracy and capability to work for a small object such as the RVR. Pair these items with the already stellar sensor set of the RVR and the device has all the foundational functions for autonomous mobility.

The kit itself comes with all the components and mounting hardware to mount everything to the RVR cover plate along with an interface cable connection the Raspberry Pi Zero W to the RVR. The kit itself comes with all the cables, mounting hardware and a separate mounting plate that provides extra space for mounting additional sensors or devices. The kit leverages the SparkFun Qwiic product line for standardized connectors for easy hookup and a consistent form factor for mounting on your RVR.
