Raspberry Pi

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!

Required Equipment

To follow this guide, you will need the following:

Supported Boards

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.

Great! Follow these instructions to use our first-time setup script.

Already set up your RVR+ with Raspberry Pi? Check out our project ideas or explore some of the following resources to go further.
