Raspberry Pi – Initio Robot by 4tronix!

In this video we will take a look at the Initio Robot from 4tronix. I explain what the Initio is, what the capabilities of the Initio are and demonstrate a few of its many functions. Robots are great fun and, in my opinion, one of the best ways to learn about programming and electronics – the Initio is the perfect beginners robot. It encompasses a huge range of components; from IR distance sensors to servo pan and tilt systems!

The Initio is made and sold by 4tronix, an excellent quality retailer for all of your electronic component needs! Check out their website here: www.4tronix.co.uk

This is a link to the ultimate Initio robot kit (the one in the video!):


I hope that you have enjoyed this video and if you have please subscribe, like and share! If you have any questions / issues about the Initio then please do not hesitate to contact me either through the comments below or at: theraspberrypiguy@gmail.com

Thanks for watchin’ and to everyone out there I wish you a HAPPY CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR!

    I’m pleased with the inicio except that for the development I try to tune up it is moving too fast.
    I thought it could be possible installing stepper motors but 4tronix has answered me that it is not possible to use stepper motors and keep the robotHat.
    If you have any idea about slowing down the inicio, let me know how to….

    Delighted to find this site.
    I find the Initio info from 4tronix quite inadequate.
    Onboard power: can I use six 1.2v rechargeable nicads? Is that a charger jack socket? What do I recharge with – 12v or what?
    Wheel motion sensors – no info whatever on how to connect to pi GPIO inputs.
