Yahboom Raspberry Pi 4WD Smart Robot is specially designed for educators, students, and Raspberry Pi enthusiasts. Most of the components are connected with screw, copper pillar and anti-reverse socket, which is the same as our other smart robots. The difference for our 4WD robot is that we use the latest Raspberry Pi 4B board as the core controller and HD camera with two degrees of freedom. Through the 5G WIFI network of Raspberry Pi, the real-time transmission of HD video can be realized. Coupled with the high-quality Bluetooth 4.0 module, so we can control car by Android/iOS mobile APP. In addition, we have created a series of AI visual gameplay based on OpenCV, such as face detection, color tracking, gesture recognition, object detection, etc. Users can not only learn about the robot car with our robot kit but study the Raspberry Pi 4B board included in this product separately. We can match it with a mouse and a keyboard to form a microcomputer, plus various sensor modules and communication modules so that you can create more possibilities.
- This robot kit is easy to assemble and features aluminum alloy chassis, powerful four-drive motors, metal motor mount, and High-quality battery.
- BST-4WD multi-functional expansion board is equipped with interfaces of various sensors and communication modules, and it is compatible with four core controllers: Arduino UNO, 51 controllers, STM32 and Raspberry Pi.
- It supports multiple functions: Intelligent light-seeking, Tracking, Ultrasonic obstacle avoidance, turn off the fire with a fan, etc.
- It supports multiple AI functions: Face detection, color tracking, object/gesture/QR code recognition etc.
- Some holes are reserved in the external structure for users to expand by themselves.
- Users can use C language programming and Python programming.
- This robot and camera platform can be controlled by APP remote control by Android/iOS mobile. And the Raspberry Pi comes with 5G WIFI for real-time transmission of HD video.
QUESTIONS & ANSWERSAsk a Question
How do you know when do charge the battery pack? The Lower power indicator light on the expansion board is on when I charge it, will the light go out when the battery charge is low?
Thanks for your question.
The two indicators on the expansion board are 12.6V voltage indicator and 5V voltage indicator.
In generally, the working time for a fully charged battery is 180 minutes, you can charge the battery pack after using it for such a long time.
Please remove the battery pack from the car before charging, and then use the charger provided by us to charge the battery pack.
During charging, the charger indicator will be red and the full charge indicator will become green.

Loved everything about this robot project kit. Easy to assemble. Fun to play with. Educational.
I bought it to participate in the robot car competition in our school.
Overall, its performance is great, especially in the tracking function, it has successfully traversed many bends and acute-angle routes.
A very cost-effective car with many sensors on it, enough for me to complete my university project.
So had been looking to get a robot or robot kit for a year or more when I finally decided to go forward with this one. I'm glad I did as it has been fun over the last almost month I've had it. After watching the assembly videos a couple time on YouTube before it arrived on time I had it together within a couple hours. Probably could have done it in less time but wanted to take the extra time to make sure I did it right plus just get to know the robot better since the pictures and videos can only show you so much. You can tell that this is not a first robot that the company has design and the quality of the parts used is very good for the price. So good hardware but the software is not so great.
I started downloading the software right after ordering the robot starting with the Python code. I've been write software on and off for more years then I'd like to say and to put it bluntly I was not impress with the code they have available. The Python code was especially badly done with the C code being good enough to use as a starting point at least. As a guess they had an experienced programmer write the C code and then a much less experienced one do the translation to Python and no review was done on it. Several of the Python code files had indent problems including mixed tab and spaces. In most programming languages this really doesn't matter but in Python where indenting and alignment has meaning for blocks of code this is really bad. Since one of the main reason I had for getting the robot to start with was to learn how to do things like direct hardware interaction etc. I was really disappointed in some ways. On the other hand it did push me to go ahead with my plans to write the Rust code I had been thinking about.
For anyone that might be interested You can find my very much work-in-progress Rust code at:
There's a lot more to do with it but at least what is finished works ;) Please download and try it out if your interested and let me know what you think.
In summary, Yahboom have put together a really solid robot in the hardware side but the example software has many issues that are disappointing and could discourage someone new to programming when the example don't even work.
I really like using this robot car, it has been with me for two years of studying.
From basic linux commands to simple Python programs; Then, some interesting functions, such as: outfire, tracking, automatic avoid, seek-light, APPcontrol, etc.. Finally, some more complex AI visual recognition function.
I learned a lot from it.
Although his appearance is not very cool, but the function is very powerful, the hardware configuration is complete, the materials and codes are also very rich.
