The ZeroBorg is our add on board for controlling motors using the Raspberry Pi Zero. It's small size means it fits neatly below a Raspberry Pi Zero and opens up endless possibilities for tiny robot designs.

The ZeroBorg can control up to 4 motors independently and is stackable via I2C, so you can keep adding ZeroBorgs (and our other compatible I2C boards) to control additional motors!

ZeroBorg is fully customisable, so you can match your ZeroBorg to your project you're making! The following optional add-ons are compatible with the ZeroBorg:

The ZeroBorg "Complete" includes all of the above optional add-ons (5V Regulator, IR Sensor & Battery Clip) fully soldered and ready to go! We also provide the bare ZeroBorg Board only for advanced users looking for a fully customisable option!
