Pololu – Building a Raspberry Pi robot with the A-Star 32U4 Robot Controller

Cool project by Pololu, which will be at next weekend’s Las Vegas Mini Maker Faire in a big way:

“In this post I will show you how to build an expandable robot platform based on a Raspberry Pi and an A-Star 32U4 Robot Controller. With this platform, the powerful Raspberry Pi can take care of high-level tasks like motion planning, video processing, and network communication, while the A-Star, which mounts to the Pi’s GPIO header, takes care of actuator control, sensor inputs, and other low-level tasks that the Pi is incapable of. The total cost of the parts I used is about $120.”
