Raspberry Pi 4

The standard kit comes with 2GB version.

All Donkey car software run in this single board computer (SBC).

Donkey HAT

The Donkey HAT is a simple PCB to simplify the process of building the Donkey Car. By using Raspberry Pi’s built-in hardware PWM and PiGPIO library, it provides convenient connectors to connect to servo and ESC.

It also comes with a 0.91 inch OLED display, which can display Donkey Car information such as IP address and other vehicle information. It works perfectly with the Donkey Car OLED part.

Electronic Speed Controller (ESC)

The electronic speed control is an electronic circuit that controls and regulates the speed of an electric motor. In our case, it receives the signal from the MM1 to control the speed of the car.

The camera installed is a a 5MP Omnivision 5647 Camera Module plugs directly into the CSI connector on the Raspberry Pi.
