Connect GoPiGo, Arduino, and VEX robots


#1

Dear all,

My son has multiple robotic kits at home, one GoPiGo, two Arduino ones and now he is moving to VEX. I feel such a waste to leave GoPiGo and Auduino ones on shelf.

I’d love to hear suggestions and ideas on how to connect them and put them together to do something interesting.

Thanks.

Hey @skywalkersv, this is a great idea! I think hooking them up just requires a bit of tinkering. Just to be clear are you using the GoPiGo2? The Arduino can definitely control the GoPiGo2 over I2C, and you could easily adapt the C libraries we have that run on the Raspberry Pi.

As for the Vex, you may need to do a little research on whether the Vex can be programmed with I2C. Do you know if it can?
