Install All the ModulesΒΆ

Make sure you are connected to the Internet and update your system:

sudo apt update
sudo apt upgrade

Note

Python3 related packages must be installed if you are installing the Lite version OS.

sudo apt install git python3-pip python3-setuptools python3-smbus

Install robot-hat.

cd /home/pi/
git clone https://github.com/sunfounder/robot-hat.git
cd robot-hat
sudo python3 setup.py install

Note

Running setup.py will download some necessary components. Your download may have failed due to network issues. You may need to download again at this point. See the following interface, type Y and press Enter.

Then download and install the vilib module.

cd /home/pi/
git clone https://github.com/sunfounder/vilib.git
cd vilib
sudo python3 install.py

Download and install the picar-x module.

cd /home/pi/
git clone -b v2.0 https://github.com/sunfounder/picar-x.git
cd picar-x
sudo python3 setup.py install

This step will take a little while, so please be patient.

Finally, you need to run the script i2samp.sh to install the components required by the i2s amplifier, otherwise the picar-x will have no sound.

cd /home/pi/picar-x
sudo bash i2samp.sh

Type y and press enter to continue running the script.

Type y and press enter to run /dev/zero in the background.

Type y and press enter to restart the Picar-X.

Note

If there is no sound after restarting, you may need to run the i2samp.sh script several times.
