Luwu Dynamics has developed a fascinating Raspberry Pi-powered robot kit that utilizes artificial intelligence to achieve self-balancing capabilities. The two-wheeled robot, which integrates a Raspberry Pi CM4 module, checks its orientation upon booting up and uses AI to adjust and maintain an upright position. Although still a work in progress, Luwu Dynamics has shared videos on Twitter showcasing the robot’s impressive self-balancing capabilities, even while crossing a bridge with only one leg wheel in motion.
The exact cost of the robot is yet to be disclosed, but Luwu Dynamics aims to release the CM4-powered robot by the fall of the current year. While waiting for the release, enthusiasts can keep track of updates and additional demonstration videos from Luwu Dynamics on their Twitter page. For those interested in other exciting Raspberry Pi projects, the XGO project offers an AI-powered robot dog with four legs for walking, an arm for grabbing objects, and an LCD screen for a face, available at Elecfreaks starting at $749.
