AlphaBot2-Base, the lower base chassis:

  • 5-ch infrared sensor, analog output, combined with PID algorithm, stable line tracking
  • Onboard modules like line tracking, obstacle avoiding, needs no messy wiring
  • TB6612FNG dual H-bridge motor driver, compared with L298P, it’s more efficient, more compact, and less heating
  • N20 micro gear motor, with metal gears, low noise, high accuracy
  • Onboard RGB LEDs, true color lighting, pretty cool

AlphaBot2-PiZero, the upper adapter board for controller:

  • LM2596 voltage regulator, provides the Pi with stable 5V power
  • TLC1543 AD acquisition chip, allows the Pi to use analog sensors
  • PCA9685 servo controller, make it more smoothly to rotate the pan head
  • CP2102 UART converter, easy for controlling the Pi via UART
  • USB HUB chip, more USB ports for devices like NIC
