The SparkFun Basic Autonomous Kit for Sphero RVR provides an expansion set of sensors to the Sphero RVR platform. Based around Raspberry Piâ€™s small yet powerful Zero W model, the kit provides both global positioning and Vision to the Sphero RVR.
A pan-tilt device allows a camera to not only provide video from the viewpoint of the RVR, but provide the ability to look around it as well. In addition, the Raspberry Pi Zero W and the Camera provide enough power to run most of the machine vision programs that will run on the Raspberry Pi platform.
The GPS board provides global position capabilities to the RVR. Whether youâ€™re setting up a geofence which the RVR must stay inside or mapping where the RVR has been, the board 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 crucial sensing abilities for autonomous mobility. The kit itself comes with all the cables and mounting hardware to mount these boards and devices to the RVR cover plate along with an interface cable connection the Raspberry Pi Zero W to the RVR.
