Hello,
Is it possible to use gopigo3 package software on gopigo2?
I know the hardware is different.

Hi @jean13380,

No, these libraries are different from one to another - different hardware asks for different implementations.

Although, there’s one thing you can do. The GoPiGo2 library has a module that can be used as a drop-in replacement and it’s very similar to the GoPiGo3 one. Here it is:
https://github.com/DexterInd/GoPiGo/blob/master/Software/Python/easygopigo.py

Compare this link I gave you for the GoPiGo2 with the API for the GoPiGo3 and you’ll see they are close to being identical. The difference is again, their implementation and scope.
https://gopigo3.readthedocs.io/en/master/

So if you’ve used so far this module for the GoPiGo2, the transition to the GoPiGo3 should be fast.

Let me know if you’ve got any further questions.

Thank you!
