More info


Balboa 32U4 is a set of elements needed to build a balancing robot. It was based on the ATmega 32u4 microcontroller, which can be programmed in the Arduino IDE. The plate also includes a double H bridge for motor control, quadrature encoders and an IMU measuring unit (3 axial accelerometer, gyroscope and magnetometer). Thanks to the above-mentioned elements it is possible to create a robot balancing on two wheels. The appropriate connector allows integration with the Raspberry PI minicomputer.


The set does not include engines and matching wheels, please buy them separately. The following engines are recommended:

However, the recommended wheels are Polol 80x10 mm , you can also use larger Polol wheels 90x10 mm
