Resources and Going Further

This project only scratches the surface in terms of what this robot is capable of both in terms of the Sphero RVR, but also the Nvidia Jetson Nano.

If you are reading this tutorial and haven't picked up hardware you can find both the Sphero RVR and the Nvidia Jetson Nano here:

Sphero RVR - Programmable Robot


NVIDIA Jetson Nano Developer Kit (V3)


If you are looking for a great place to start with machine learning on the Nvidia Jetson Nano, but not quite ready for a fully built out robot, check our the Deep Learning Institute kit which is a great introduction to the Nano and gets you everything you need to get started.

SparkFun DLI Kit for Jetson Nano


Check out the full Python SDK documentation for the Sphero RVR for fully harnessing the sensors, actuators and control provided to you through the SDK.

With these few examples on integrating the JetBot and the Sphero RVR together into a single project you are well on your way to building a rather sophisticated autonomous robot. To take the robot to the next level take a look at our hookup guide for our Pi based kits for the RVR. These give examples for integrating GPS and distance sensors into the project build.

Our Qwiic Python library github repo has a growing list of Qwiic sensors and boards that are supported in Python and work with the NVIDIA Jetson Nano. If you are looking to integrate them into Jupyter Notebooks take a look at this guide that gives some example code.

Working with Qwiic on a Jetson Nano through Jupyter Notebooks

We created a few Jupyter Notebooks to make using our Qwiic boards with your Jetson Nano even easier!

If you are looking for another JetBot example to try your hand at using this build, I am currently working on the road following examples found on the JetBot GitHub repository.
