I'm looking for some advice regarding Python and robotics. I am new to robotics and am clueless when it comes to the hardware. I am looking to use Python to control the robots. Is this possible?
I have been teaching Python for a short time to high school 13-15 year olds. So far we have covered basic programs like - Converting a users age to dog years, guess the number between 1 and 10, dice roll simulators, compliment generators, and at the moment Hangman. This is also the extent of my Python knowledge.
I've seen robotics kits based on Arduino but if I want to stick with Python I'll need to use the Raspberry Pi right? If so, bearing in mind our tight budget, what are the hardware basics are I'll need?
Online retailer suggestions are welcomed too.
