Raspberry Pi is more than just a board that you can load a few programs onto and have a litte fun; it is a fully fledged computer! We are looking forward to seeing all the fun you're able to have by connecting your Raspberry Pi to your RVR+ or RVR.
We will be using a Python SDK on the Raspberry Pi and RVR+/RVR, but more on that later.
Pull down the newest Python SDK from the GitHub repo!
To follow this guide, you will need the following:
A Raspberry Pi 3, 3B+, 4 or Zero W
USB keyboard and mouse for the Raspberry Pi
HDMI monitor and cable to connect it to your Raspberry Pi (Pi 4 and Zero W require specialized cables or adapters)
USB power source and cable for the Pi
Three female to female jumper wires
The RVR+/RVR Raspbery Pi Python SDK is officially supported on Raspberry Pi 3, 3B+, 4 and Zero W. It can also be used on other linux-based single-board-computers (SBCs) with some tweaks, but that won't be covered here.
Let's Get Started
Choose the best setup path for you. Which of the following describes you?
A. I am new to Raspberry Pi, or just want the quickest and simplest setup path.
You should start with a preconfigured micro SD card image for the easiest starting point. Use the instructions on this page to get started.
B. I have a Pi already set up, and I'm familiar with using terminal. I want to use this Pi with RVR+/RVR.
