- BeagleBone Black (didn't try but could be better and cheapear to use a Beaglebone Green)
- USB Wifi Dongle. You can find a list of compatible dongles in Internet. My short list:
- Logilink wl0084b. Link. Works on Beaglebone Black in Beaglebone Green I had some problems, but now is working (sorry but I don't know what was the problem)
- WIPI element14. Link
- Regulator: 1 x Pololu 2119.
Motors and encoders:
- Motors: 2 x Pololu 2204. I had a bad experience with this motors bought from ebay. In this case I recomend using reliable suppliers such as Exp Tech.
- Motor Brackets: 1 x Pololu 1086, Pololu Micro Metal Gearmotor Bracket Pair.
- Motor Driver: 1 x DRV8835 Dual Motor Driver Carrier.
- Wheels: 1 x Pololu Wheel 32x7mm Pair.
- Magnetic Encoders Pair Kit: 1 x Pololu 2598.
- Resistors: 1 x 22k Ohms (for motor dirver), 4 x 100 Ohms (for encoders).
- Ribbon cable. Link
- Ribbon Crimp Connector - 6-pin (2x3, Female). Link
Note: Pay attention with the Micro Metal Gearmotor as there are quiet a lot of similar models. I wrote the manufacter part number to avoid mistakes (2204).
- IR sensors: 5 x IR distance sensor, including cable (10cm-80cm) - Pololu GP2Y0A21YK0F.
- Resistors: 5 x 1k Ohm and 5 x 470 Ohms (for IR sensors).
- Capacitors: 5 x 10uF 16V Electrolytic Capacitor (for IR sensors).
- 1 x Breadboard-friendly SPDT Slide Switch. Link
- 40 Pin Break Away Headers - Straight (Black). Link
- Eneloop: 6x AA batteries Ni-Mh, 1900 mAh.
- Charger: I recomend Hama MH-C800S but it's expensive; you might use a cheaper battery charger.
- Battery holder: 1 battery holder 4xAA wired + 1 battery holder 2xAA wired. Link1. Link2
- BeagleBone Black transparent case with access to all GPIO connectors.
- Stacking Header Set for Beagle Bone Capes (2x23). Link
- Breadboard 400 (300/100). Link
- Breadboard jumpers (0.6mm tinned solid copper core). Link
- 3D models (1-Floor.stl and 2-Floor.stl). Link. PLA is better than ABS in slipping with bearing balls.
- 4 Nylon Screw M3x6mm (PLA frame) + 5 Metal Screw M3x6mm (infrared sensors).
- 5 Nylon Spacer M3x22mm.
- 5 nuts M3. One of them has to be metallic.
- 2 (12mm) G16 Hardened Carbon Steel Bearing Ball. Link
- Multimeter: If you don't want to break your BBB, a multimeter is high recommended.
- Oscilloscope. Not essential. But recommended if you want to test the quality of your sensor signals. You can find alternatives to hardware oscilloscopes like USB ones. I use the Analog Discovery; a great but expensive tool (around $200).
- IDC Crimp tool. Link
