Robot list

Iv'e been building robots lately, because I'm forgetful this is a checklist of stuff to install on SD cards.

1 Flash raspbian
2 Add ssh file to boot menu (so I can immediately login from SSH)
3 Add WiFi config file (so I dont have to set up on gui).
4 Add python files such as line follower program and set preferences to run as program

Boot and login via SSH

1 Run sudo raspi-config ...
change password
enable camera
enable SSH
enable I2C
enable remote gpio

2 Install explorer hat (or whatever motor controller your using)
3 Install inputs (sudo pip install inputs)
4 Update and reboot
5 Check everything works.

My WiFi config for quickness: (wpa_supplicant.conf)

ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev

ssid="your ssid"
psk="your ssid password"
