These Servo Motors for the Raspberry Pi are perfect for connecting to the PivotPi to make a robot that moves.
Visit our PivotPi Product Tutorials & Documentation page for step-by-step tutorials, technical specs, detailed product pictures, and sample code libraries.
What’s not included?
- PivotPi: the board that you will connect your servos to.
- Raspberry Pi (PivotPi is compatible with all version of the Raspberry Pi): This board is the main brains of the robot that will connect to the PivotPi board.
- microSD Card: Required “hard drive” for the Raspberry Pi (you’ll get a blank sd card and you will have to download and install Dexter Industry’s custom software “Raspbian for Robots” or if you are a beginner, check out or CINCH software.)
- Ethernet Cable: Required for plugging in to your computer to program the PivotPi.
- Power Supply: Wall plug to power your Raspberry Pi while you are programming it, rather than using the batteries.
- Batteries: PivotPi requires 4 AA batteries, which are not included.
