With an Arduino UNO, you can easily control DC motors. With a Linux computer such as Raspberry Pi or Intel UP is a bit more difficult. The simple solution is to control with Pi or UP a motor driver with a built-in microcontroller. RosBot uses a microcontroller to control 2 stepper motors or 4 DC motors. It controls the motors in the same way like an Arduino UNO.
RosBot is designed to be directly attached to any of the Raspberry Pi 2, 3 B +, or Intel UP.
The board has two DRV8833 H-bridge motor drivers.
The microcontroller is ATmega328. It is an 8-bit microcontroller based on AVR architecture.
In addition to DC motors, RosBot has pins for control of up to 12 sensors.
