SunFounder PiCar-X is an AI self-driving robot car for Raspberry Pi, on which RPi works as the control center. The mounted camera module, ultrasonic module, line tracking module can separately realize the functions of color detection, face detection, automatic obstacle avoidance, automatic line tracking, etc.
Taking the SunFounder-designed Robot HAT for Raspberry Pi as the driving module, it integrates the motor driving, servo driving, and presets ADC, PWM, Digital pins for your function extension. A speaker has already been inserted in the Robot HAT to realize TTS (Text-to-Speech), sound effects, background music, etc.
If you are interested in autonomous driving with a camera, you should own our PiCar-X!

NOTE: The Raspberry Pi board and 18650 batteries are not included in shipping list. 

Robotic kits for teens and adults

Build your own remote control car

A perfect tech toy to build your own robot and explore endless learning activities.

Built with a robust finished aluminum body and include a Robot HAT board based on raspberry pi development, Picar-X is easy to be controlled and assembled. It comes with Multiple Playing Modes.

  • [STEM Robotics Car Kit] The PiCar-X is an AI self-driving robot car kit compatible with Raspberry Pi models 4B, 3B, 3B+ and 2B (Raspberry Pi not included). Suitable for adults and teens, the PiCar-X is the ideal platform for learning robotics programming.
  • [Advanced Metal Structure] The body of the PiCar-X is engineered with a strong aluminum alloy material, and has been designed for a quick and easy assembly to allow users to start driving the PiCar-X in minutes.
  • [Multiple Modes and Modules] The PiCar-X Raspberry Pi Robot includes a pan-tilt camera, an ultrasonic module, a line-tracking module, and allows for intelligent obstacle-avoidance, object-following, line tracking, visual recognition capabilities (facial, hand gestures, QR codes, traffic signs, color recognition) and voice output (TTS/sound effects/background music).
  • [Programing Software] PiCar-X supports both Python and SunFounder Ezblock language. Ezblock is engineered with an intuitive graphical-user interface to allow new Raspberry Pi users to quickly master robotics programming, and can provide remote control through a web interface.
  • [Online Tutorials] Professional and high-quality one-stop online courses are available to allow users to master beginning to advanced functions of the PiCar-X platform

Real-time Video Transmission

- The mounted camera is capable of 2592*1944 pixel static images and supports 1080p30, 720p60, 480p60/90 video.
- With a 180°wide angle,it can capture wider visual scenes.
- Also,this advanced designed white car, four wheels with powerful motors, shows strong flexibility on back and forth.It can be realized 360° turning.

Line Tracking & Cliff Detection

The 3 channel grayscale module prevents the car from falling off the cliff when it moves freely, also for implementing walking along the line.

AI Detection(Color/Face Recognition)

PiCar-X can separately realize the functions of color detection, face detection. Note: Only one color can be detected for one time(Support red-orange yellow green blue purple)

Python & Blockly visual programming

PiCar-X guides you to grasp the blockly Python program skill. It comes with the free Ezblock Studio APP compatible with iOS, Android, PC, Phone, and Tablet. Learn the block-based coding skills while developing critical thinking skills.

PERFECT FOR BEGINNER TO LEARN ADVANCED CODERS (14 examples given to expand your knowledge)

Music Mode

A speaker has already been inserted in the Robot HAT to realize TTS (Text-to-Speech), sound effect, background music that brings you a good mood, etc. You can develop a funny interaction with this function. Such as, Programmable texted message "hello" to play when it sees your friends. There's a camera and music mode gives the car a sense of science and technology.

Obstacle Avoidance

PiCar-X has ultrasonic Sensor that can be used for experiments such as obstacle avoidance and automatic follow. Distance value can be read with your devices.
