GoPiGo3 is the newest version of our robot car! The GoPiGo3 Base Kit is perfect if you already have a Raspberry Pi and want to get it moving. It includes the GoPiGo3 board, chassis, wheels, motors, encoders, and power battery pack.

Also need a Raspberry Pi? The best value is the Starter Kit, including all you need to get started from scratch!

What’s included?

What’s not included?

Suggested components required to make it a mobile robot (NOT INCLUDED):

Check out our BalanceBot Extension kit that lets you turn it into an upright robot!

Check out our Beginner Starter Kit if don’t already have a Raspberry Pi and are starting from scratch!

What’s required for assembly?

Assembly requires 8 AA batteries (not included). Assembly instructions can be found on our support page.

Note: If you have a Macbook Air without an ethernet jack, you might want to get an ethernet to USB adapter (only for Raspbian for Robots software).

What can I do with it?

DexterOS, the software that comes with the GoPiGo Beginner Starter Kit, has dozens of free, built-in lessons to teach you to program the GoPiGo in Bloxter (our drag-and-drop language just like Scratch). There’s no software to download or install on your device.

We also have a subscription product called GoBox where we mail you a new Mission every month, 9 of which also include a cool sensor to attach to your GoPiGo that you’ll learn to program to accomplish the mission! Missions are step-by-step instructions in a story format that make learning how to program fun and engaging for students of all ages.

Educators should check out GoBoxEd.

Browser Streaming Robot in Python

In this advanced project with the GoPiGo3 we build a Browser video streaming robot which streams live video to a browser and can be controlled from the browser.

What else do I need to know?

  • Works with all versions of the Raspberry Pi
  • Many software examples and API are provided by Dexter Industries on our open-source repository on Github.
  • Lego Technic bricks: GoPiGo is compatible with Lego Technic parts.

Assembly instructions for GoPiGo3 can be found here.

Assembly instructions for GoPiGo2 can be found here.

Assembly instructions for GoPiGo1 can be found here.

How do I know if I have GoPiGo 1, 2 or 3?

GoPiGo3 has the red GoPiGo board on top. GoPiGo2 has the red board on bottom and comes with a red velcro strap for the battery pack.
