BrickPi Comparison with Other Robotics Platforms

Argo Mändla
This paper describes a robotics platform BrickPi that started through crowdfunding. BrickPi enables using LEGO Mindstorms EV3 and LEGO Mindstorms NXT sensors and motors outside their original kit. This paper also describes BrickPi’s pros and cons compared to LEGO Mindstorms robotics platforms. Furthermore, two different operating systems are presented, that support BrickPi circuit board. The paper includes manual written in Estonian, which describes how to install either of the operating systems, and everything that is needed to start programming on BrickPi right-away. The paper also contains a demo robot, that uses LEGO Mindstorms EV3 motors and LEGO bricks. The robot uses a sensor, that is a non-standard LEGO Mindstorms sensor, but is compatible with the LEGO Mindstorms robotics platforms.
