Reference projects for the original Piro
- The Self Balancing Raspberry Pi OpenCV image processing robot by 74Samy was my biggest overall reference for Piro.
- PiBBOT by Mark Williams has a lot of good info about making a balancing robot with a Raspberry Pi.
- The author of Balancing robot final year project has shared the source code for his balancing robot.
- The Arduino-based B-Robot by JJRobots is also interesting, and has source code available.
