An easy to use robotics controller with advanced features for the Raspberry Pi.
There wasn't a board available with all the features I wanted.
There is a pre-configured SD Image available for download.
This has a number of built in scripts which add functionality to the board.
E.g. Flashing the IP address on the RGB LED. Youtube Link
Showing the battery level on the RGB LED.
Safely shutting down the RPi when the battery is low.
There is a Python library to accompany the RedBoard+.
This adds simple commands to control all the features of the board.
E.g. to control a motor in Python - simply import the redboard library:
Then to drive motor 1 at half speed forward:
Or full speed backwards:
Lots more info here: RedBoard+ GitHub page
There are also plenty of code examples for controlling robots with a PC keyboard or Gamepads as well as a quick start guide to controlling a robot.
More RC car than Robot!
