Such a great, versatile teaching tool. Really enjoyed using it to teach motor control, visual deep learning control and EKF-SLAM!

I taught the advanced robotics subject when it used Lego Mindstorms (the robots before a decision was made to move to something custom made). See the attached photos for some context of what we were using, and how radically the Penguin Pi improved that experience for the students. Gone are the days of messing around with Bluetooth, carrying cables around behind the robot, and hoping for no topples…. the Penguin Pi is whole new world.
