Summary

Raspberry Pi Pico Robot a simple, compact but multi-functional programmable trolley. It not only has a large number of sensor modules onboard, but also reserves a lot of interfaces, which is convenient for users to expand. At the same time, it also supports Bluetooth APP and infrared remote control, which is a good tool for learning MicroPython programming.

I am very surprised by the design of the raspberry pi pico robot, but …. why you do not have designed a pico robot with encoder motors. A robot with encoder motors gives you in robot challenges more advantages. Perhaps in version 2 ???
