I am planning to build some primary level of project like home made robot, which I need to explore an image recognition and path recognition(using four wheels vehicle). So I am looking to buy a device like Raspberry pi.

What other equipment or hardwares I should buy along with raspberry pi.

Which one is better Arduino or raspberry pi for robotics using AI.

  • $\begingroup$ I tried to answer your question, but it would be helpful if you provided more specifics about your application. I wanted to avoid a laundry-list of parts, and instead focused on your second question: the differences between the Arduino and the Pi. $\endgroup$ – Mepix Apr 16 '18 at 22:46
  • $\begingroup$ Welcome to Robotics user9219405, but I'm afraid that shopping questions really aren't a good fit for a stack exchange site. We prefer practical, answerable questions based on actual problems that you face. Take a look at How to Ask and tour for more information on how stack exchange works, and the Robotics question checklist for details of how to write a good question. $\endgroup$ – Mark Booth Apr 19 '18 at 16:12

First, it is important to understand the differences between the Arduino and the Raspberry Pi. You can read more here and here.

  • The Arduino is a microcontroller. It is a specialized board that handles low level, often repetitive tasks like reading a sensor or controlling a motor with a motor driver.
  • The Raspberry Pi is a complete Linux computer that typically runs on the Raspbian OS. While the Raspberry Pi has a set of GPIO ports that can interface with sensors and motor drivers, the Pi can also process higher level tasks. The Pi is capable of running python and C/C++ libraries such as OpenCV and other AI frameworks.

Using the two boards in a project are not mutually exclusive! You can use the Arduino for controlling motors and processing sensors while using the Raspberry Pi for your AI libraries and decision making steps.
