As a result of putting together a SunFounder PiCar-S Raspberry Pi Kit, one will have the chance to enjoy the experience of putting together a DIY toy car, while also learning the basics of programming and robotics.

The self-driving toy car kit provides all of the components necessary to build a PiCar-S vehicle that runs on Raspberry Pi. With the included Python code in the kit, the PiCar-S can be programmed to avoid obstacles, as well as follow a light or a line to get around.

Although kids of the past have been captivated by remote control toy cars, next-generation toys like the PiCar-S are emerging, challenging kids to become the creators of their own playthings that boast incredible built-in features and many educational lessons.
