As well as being able to control a pair of DC motors, the RRBV2 has some other useful features:

  • you can plug a selection of Adafruit I2C displays straight into its I2C socket
  • it directly accepts an HC-SR-04 range finder
  • it has 2 built-in LEDs
  • it has 2 inputs that can be connected to switches
  • it has 2 buffered open-collector outputs

If you want to take your whole Raspberry Pi mobile, get yourself a low cost robot chassis on eBay. Look for one that includes 6V gear motors and wire them up just like the motors we used here.
