Raspberry Pi 4 Support

Hi there, i was wondering if the power delivery on the Sphero RVR is suitable for the raspberry Pi 4? as im aware it requires more amperage than previous models.

Also for the power delivery, rather than using the USB port on the RVR can i just use the +5v header on the RVR? thanks

I’ve been able to successfully drive RVR using a Raspberry Pi 4, yes. I imagine if you add additional stuff (camera, USB stuff, etc.) you’ll hit the power limits sooner than you would with a 3+, but just driving has worked fine for me so far.

I haven’t tried the +5v line, though. In fact, I’ve gone the opposite - I’m getting power from & communicating to the RVR over one USB-C port: UART over USB for Raspberry Pi
