hi, i was wondering if ARC could program robots with raspberry pi instead of the ez bv4
Upgrade to ARC Pro

If you are talking about running ARC on a PI, natively, no.
I've seen folks really, really push Raspberry pi mods including getting it to boot windows 7 under a shell. I've also seen people get Android to run on a pi and EZ-Robot does have an Android app. And I've read Android "might" be publishing a native version for the pi. So, if you could get Windows or Android to run on the pi in theory ARC "should" run as well.
But please don't take that as an encouragement. The mods I have seen are very time consuming and require a lot of software tinkering and futzing. My advice is if you have a pi already and want to search the net for those type of mods and see if you can get it work - that's fine.
If you are in some way relying on the pi running ARC for a school project or something I think you are going to be looking at sad times.
And that would only allow ARC to run on the pi and control an EZ-b v3 or v4.
In the end most folks tend to be happier, healthier and wiser for buying an EZ-Robot kit.
To be honest, you wouldn't get anything near as good as an EZ-B by trying to use a Pi. If you are adamant on using a Pi to control your robot then I'm afraid it's a long road of complex programming and fiddling around.
For $99 the EZ-B V4 is way way ahead of any other micro controller out there and the ARC software makes the programming side a breeze. You're much better off with an EZ-B.
What I'm getting at is - use an android device and an ezb v4
