They create a robot turtle to clear the ground of land mines

Creating small SBC boards like Pi Zero are not only effective because of their small size but also because of their low price.. A very affordable price that makes gadgets created thanks to the DIY movement more effective than original gadgets, not only because they offer the same thing but because they are cheaper and cheaper for many pockets.

Andrew Jansen has created a robot turtle that meets the above requirements. In other words, it is a gadget created using a DIY philosophy that makes it cheaper to use this gadget than the original gadget and also offers a better service than accessories created to deactivate landmines.Andrew Jansen has created a robot in the shape of a turtle, created with pieces of cardboard and a Raspberry pi Zero. This board uses Raspbian and python scripts that make it possible to function and the batting of its fins that on the ground work quite well, at least for the functions that we want to use this robot turtle.

The robot turtle will be used to deactivate landmines, a function for which no living being or expensive gadgets are worth, unless we have enough money. That is why this robot turtle is being so famous since for a budget less than 50 dollars we can get this gadget and in many cases, to be able to create spare parts almost free of charge.

The components are easy to get and we can get the software through this Raspberry Pi Foundation project It was created so that through scripts, the turtle could learn the movements and the course by itself.

The truth is that this robot turtle is quite useful and effective, because with some cardboard and a Pi Zero board we can disable quite a few land mines and thus clean up areas that unfortunately contain many land and anti-personnel mines. Hopefully more than one sees and decides to carry out this project
