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 4 motors independently and via I2C you can keep adding ZeroBorgs (and our other compatible I2C boards) to control additional motors.

You can add these options to customise your ZeroBorg for the project you're making:

  • A DCDC regulator to power the Pi as well as the motors,
  • An infrared sensor to control the motors via an infrared remote control,
  • A 9V battery clip to power the Pi and the motors.
  • Additional ZeroBorgs to control more motors.

We also provide the ZeroBorg with all the additional components soldered so you can plug in your robot and go!
