  • Pololu 3pi+ 2040 Robot - Hyper Edition (15:1 HPCB Motors), Assembled
  • Powered by Raspberry Pi RP2040 MCU
  • Equipped with dual quadrature encoders and comprehensive IMU
  • Programmable using C++, Arduino, or Python
  • Features a power system that maintains constant motor speed

The Pololu 3pi+ 2040 Robot - Hyper Edition (15:1 HPCB Motors), Assembled is a high-performance mobile platform that is powered by the Raspberry Pi RP2040 MCU. This robot is equipped with dual quadrature encoders that facilitate closed-loop speed and position control. It also features line sensors, front bump sensors, and a comprehensive IMU that includes a 3-axis accelerometer, magnetometer, gyro, and a graphical OLED display. The Hyper Edition of this robot is assembled with high-speed 15:1 HPCB 6V Micro Metal Gearmotors, making it a challenging device to control and prone to damage from impacts. Therefore, it is recommended solely for advanced users. This edition also comes with a spare 15:1 gearbox.

The 3pi+ 2040 Robot is a versatile, user-programmable device that is compact in size, measuring only 9.7 cm in diameter. It is powered by a Raspberry Pi RP2040 microcontroller, a 32-bit dual-core Arm Cortex-M0+ processor that operates at 125 MHz. This robot can be programmed using C++, Arduino, or Python and comes with 16 MB of flash memory preloaded with a MicroPython interpreter. For those who wish to customize or enhance their robots with additional peripherals, the power rails, power system controls, and microcontroller’s I/O lines can be accessed via several 0.1-inch-pitch expansion ports.

The 3pi+ 2040 Robot is equipped with two H-bridge motor drivers and a variety of integrated sensors. These include a pair of quadrature encoders for closed-loop motor control, a complete inertial measurement unit, five downward-facing reflectance sensors for line-following or edge-detection, and left and right bump sensors on the front face of the robot. The robot also features three onboard pushbuttons for user input, a 128x64 graphical OLED display, a buzzer, and six RGB LEDs for feedback.

The robot's unique power system maintains the motors at a constant 8 V, independent of the battery charge level, ensuring that the speed of the motors does not vary with the battery voltage. This product is the assembled Hyper Edition of the 3pi+ 32U4 OLED Robot, which is challenging to control and can damage itself from impacts. Therefore, it is recommended only for advanced users. A spare gearbox is included with this edition.

Please note that due to its high speed and difficulty in control, this robot is prone to damage from impacts and is therefore recommended only for advanced users.
