Sure. If you do a search for the raspirobot board by Monk, you will find code that will allow you to drive the robot forward, reverse, left, right, spin, stop./
Get that working first. Its the easiest to get going. Control it first with your laptop... use wifi... get your power battery stuff working reliably; &c.
I'm working on my robot too. I started at the other end of course, robotics (eyes, ears, feet) my controllers are almost done, and my eyes are about ready too... I'll be making my own chasis (I want it to look like R2D2 [totally plagiarizing the case design] and I want it to carry around an 80amphr gel cel.
Work on it in tiny steps. At each tiny step ask questions here. Don't ask how to program a robot. That is too generic and too complicated. If you ask, "how do I move a stepper motor forward" or "how to I make us of a range sensor" those are better questions.
If you don't know how to program, well that's going to be a problem. And you can solve it. Take a class, read a book, look at tutorials on-line, experiment... but don't ask, "how do I program" that is too generic and too complicated. But if you were to ask, "how do I use a for loop to control the left turn of my robot motor for incremental speed control" that would be a better question.
... looking forward to seeing your posts (and pics) of your robot as you make progress.
