Arduino has grown almost exponentially in popularity since it was first released and is well known in the world of robotics as an inexpensive, highly versatile and easy to learn software and hardware platform for electronic and robotic experimentation. However, the introduction of the Raspberry Pi single board computer is one of the first real indications of a tendency to make electronic experimentation affordable to the masses. Priced at not too much higher than an Arduino, many people who are looking to get started in robotics don’t know which to choose, or where to start. So if you are new to robotics and are wondering where to start and what to get, this article is here to help.
